She made appointments here in Arizona and Saturday morning we went to David's Bridal where she tried on about nine dresses. All but maybe three we all liked though the top contenders were number one and three. In the end the winner from store one was number three and we were pretty sure that would be the one.
My mom and Kathy and I were her entourage. The gal she had was really fast at getting dresses and at getting her changed which was great.
We had a quick lunch and then went to Brilliant Bridal where she was not finding alot of dresses she liked. The set up there is different...you get to walk around and pick the dresses you want to try. We picked one for fun because it reminded us of something my great grandma Rushman would have worn! The dress was made off little white plastic discs. It actually looked great on and my sister (who was voting via pictures on the phone) liked that one. The second dress she tried on there was an absolute stunner. It was the first dress that she immediately said "I really like this one" to. I knew then we had a winner. She tried on a half dozen more or so and then back to dress two. They added a better belt and a veil and it was a done deal. She said yes to the dress!
Sunday morning I sewed a test block (before drawing lines on all those squares) and packed everything up to take to my brother's house. The whole family got together and watched the Packer game and ate. I marked all of my squares and Kathy and I did all of hers. Still need to cut her aqua (which goes in her center) but we have strips cut to choose from first. We hope to sew about a quarter of them each night this week so we stay caught up but we shall see!
I will be linking up with Quiltville.
