Canvas Update & BIG News!!!

I have been working steadily on the Ewe & Eye Flower In Flower Vase canvas.  I finally finished the vase part, minus the Memory Thread at the very end to outline the vase.


Now for the leaves!


And now for the BIG news.  I am getting married!!!!  BF proposed on a hot air balloon ride back on July 12.  The big day is November 2 of this year, just BF and I at an inn on Skyline Drive in Virginia.  This is the engagement ring and the wedding band together. 


And I leave this post with a pic of our two dogs, Layla (smaller one) and Mojo (big one).



Until next time...

Canvas looks great!

But more importantly...BEST WISHES!!! (And congratulations to your BF.) I salute you in true Southern form, where the bride gets "best wishes," or as my hubby likes to say, "good luck with that guy," and the groom gets "congratulations" (i.e., good job on bagging such a wonderful gal!) =)

Barely 2 months to go and you will be soon walking down the aisle! I’m so excited for your wedding. I hope you can post pictures of that very special moment. Your boyfriend is a very romantic guy for proposing in a hot air balloon, and giving you this stunning engagement ring. I’m sure you will treasure this engagement ring. It is one of your most valuable possessions that will always remind you of the significant moment that took place last July 12, 2012. Best Wishes
