Needlepoint start and wedding trip

I know I keep posting about the cross stitch projects I'm going to start, but I just couldn't resist getting out this Laura J. Perrin design. It has been speaking to me ever since I picked up the fibers. Mainly because her designs are so much fun and I love the colors in this one. It's called "Desert Rose" and is a freebie designed for Rainbow Gallery. Maybe I also like it because I collect desert rose china which has the same colors. Probably not a coincidence :)

This will be my traveling project. I leave for Grand Rapids tomorrow to help Elizabeth with the final countdown to the wedding on Saturday. I'm sure it's going to be beautiful and we're looking forward to having a great time celebrating the start of their life together. Vows, dinner, dancing and Jeff's fireworks display will make for a wonderful day. BTW, here is one of their engagement pictures taken at their river property which is where the wedding will be held. Liz and Jeff will eventually build a home on the property. Won't it be nice for them to sit on the back porch and look down towards the river to see the spot where they tied the knot?

I probably won't be blogging next week. See you all after the wedding!
