A weekend and a wedding.

Hello April, springtime, and blog friends!
So long Easter bunny, cool temps, and the weekend...
Our weekend was busy, happy, sunshiney, busy, fun-filled, busy. Happy.


Saturday evening found Carrie and I at the wedding of some good friends of ours. Kristin and Kandice were originally "married" in 2011 before Arizona had officially recognized same-sex marriages. And now that Arizona has stepped it up, K & K hosted "Wedding 2.0" where they officially tied the knot, signed the papers, and celebrated with friends. We had so much fun at their official wedding!

I made red velvet cupcakes for the occasion...

So yeah, Saturday was all about baking and frosting and getting dressed up for a wedding. I chose Sunday as a day to take care of a few things around our house and that ended up involving several hours of friendship quilt sewing. :o)

It almost felt surreal to finally be joining all the blocks together to form a quilt top. I loved revisiting every square and thinking about the amazing connection I've made with so many women from around the world. The whole thing really blows my mind sometimes!

I made great progress on joining squares but had to move on to other things so I will revisit this project in a couple of weeks. You know I'll share more about it as I go.


And now it's Monday morning and time to take on another work week. I wonder what kinds of wild and wacky things are in store for us in the next few days...

Here's hoping for lots of awesome in the week ahead.

What better way is there to spend a weekend than at a wedding? Oh wait, a wedding AND some sewing? That's totally perfect!

Wedding 2.0 sounds really good - it's wonderful that they finally were able to tie the knot officially. I like the decoration in the little bottles. Your red velvet cupcakes look delicious - I think I will keep the recipe. Thank you for the link! I look forward to seeing the friendship quilt when it is done. I am not a sewer, I'm really poor at it, but I admire other people's work.
Have a lovely week!

I'm so excited to see the quilt come together. I agree, it has been wonderful to connect with so many people, all through a love of fabric and sewing.
