Wedding Row Finish


If you follow my blog, this WIP I'm sure you have seen way before SGB as I was working on this for my uncle's upcoming wedding. Well with being sick and all, I have been slowly been putting stitches into it. Well I'm happy to announce that my Wedding Row (by Bent Creek) is now complete.

Renee (Thanks again Renee!) was kind enough to get me all the WDW and GAST threads for this design. Gosh they sure don't skimp around on the threads do they!? I only had about a 2 -12" with 4 ply of thread left! I special ordered the fabric from Sassy's (Thanks again Lauren), 18ct Sugared Coffee. I just loved the color!

Of course the WDW whitewash thread color wasn't bright enough to stand out on the fabric. So I had to add some backstich to make it stand out. I plan to make this into a pillow.

Naturally, since we have gotten the wedding invitation, a "no gifts please" request was on the invite. But I'm going to ignore it. :) I think it just so cool if you have something handmade that symbolizes your wedding date!

My sister and her hubby (fiancee at the time) gave us an afghan with our names and wedding date. My brother and his wife (gf at the time) gave us our wedding photo album. And my parents... well they gave us a washer.. which it died on us.. LOL But we still loved the gesture of the large gift.
