Moments in time

The days are going by in a whirlwind of activities and preparations.  I try to enjoy every special moment, but they come and go so quickly!

Another lovely wedding shower.

A gorgeous tea at the home of beautiful bridesmaid Brittany.

 A pinwheel party to make hundreds of pinwheel/rosettes for the reception.

 Moving Molly out of her dorm room at Multnomah Bible College.
 (I loved following Molly's car and seeing a stack of three quilts in the back window.)

Trying out the wedding hairstyle.

 (Hair by Melissa at Bombshells, Beaverton, Oregon.)

Attending and celebrating Peter's graduation.

And in between it all --
and shooing away a pesky cat.

 Fifty wonky log cabin blocks.

And a big bag of leftovers for another project....

With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
