i love making gifts for others because in some ways it insures that projects get done. in others it is just such a wonderful feeling to know that you are making an object that others may enjoy. i had been working on a few wedding gifts for some friends getting married and was able to push through to the end without cutting out intended projects. it seems as if these days i envision more things than i can finish but with this one it was complete. during the process of sewing the floor mat and aprons i was thinking of this couple and wishing the best for them. the labor of love was truly poured out during this whole process. i had given myself enough time to finish the work and in doing so i was able to enjoy the production and not just the end result.
the wedding was wonderful. small and beautifully put together. the intimate size of the event made it even that much more special knowing that a select few were chosen to help celebrate the event. i wish the newly weds many blessings and adventures in this new life together.
