today im

Today im at the kitchen table working on the custom order quilt. I hope to finish it by tonight but to be truthful

I think I can manage to come up with something by then.

I love the sneak peek of the quilt you are making, such gorgeous fabrics. Also love the vintage brides dress, would love to see more of it....wondering what the skirt part looked like because the bodice is divine.
