I’m taking off a day from work today with 2 of my daughters to go to Manhattan to find material for Blima’s wedding. She wants the color purple for all the family and I’m happy to report if you don’t already know that purple is a hot color this season. I think I’m too old to actually wear all purple (I’ll feel like a huge grape) but a shade of it will work for me. I usually provide dresses for all the grandgirls and I’m happy to report that was already taken care of! We are now trying to decide if all the guys should wear purple ties (or socks— just joking) or just buttoneers. They seem to be balking at the buttoneers, but I’ll just threaten them a little more. 😉
We recently had our annual Hanukah party and it certainly was easier for me this year. No one let me do anything, no cooking, no preparing, no clean up! That’s the way to do it. All my kids that live in NY and NJ came with their kids and we had a very full house. I am now broke again because I give each one of my grandchildren $8 and there are more and more of them every year, thank G-d.
Mazal Tov!! For all of you that know my daughter, Blima [and for those of you who don’t, too bad on you], she got engaged Wed. night. He went the whole hog and hired a violinist and asked her on one knee. She is very happy and plans to get married in early March. That just means that the mother, moi, has to start getting busy making her gown because I’ve made them for all my other daughters and she wants one, too. Dumb me.
My daughter, Blima, made this lap quilt as a wedding gift for her best friend. Her friend loves flowers and hearts, so Blima used every flower and heart fabric she could find. It is a positive/negative quilt. If you want more info about how to make it, you can email Blima at email@example.com.
Sorry for not posting in so long. Life has intruded. My grandson and great nephew both had bar mitzvahs and a grand-daughter became engaged. I get to get busy and make another chupa quilt. This one I’ve been working on for 5 years thinking I had plenty of time. Not any more! I will also be starting another round of chemo and would appreciate it if you all keep me in mind in your prayers.
Here is a better picture of my daughter’s chupa that I made.
Here is the picture of the quilt I created for my daughter’s Chupa. It was part of the “ceiling” of the Chupa.
The wedding finally came and passed (more on that another time). Below is a picture of my daughter in the wedding dress I made! Yay!
