    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from whitepinesquilter in NQR professional wedding picture preview - now with link to blog post!   
    Of course you can share the link with your daughter. It is published on a public blog! LOL Even being pinned on pintrest. The photographer was so wonderful. I was at ease as soon as I met her. She was able to read personalities perfectly and get some amazing shots. The florist brought the flowers in the jars. I can't wait to see the rest of the family pictures. I feel like we have some just awesome pictures of Madison and Kailey. I just couldn't be happier with what I've seen and most importantly daughter is super happy with them!

    Just got the blog post from photographer and she has about 100 pictures maybe and this is only a taste! Wow. I'm blown away. I can't wait to see the rest. Such beautiful details she got and oh of course the one with Maddie in her sun glasses and bag cracked me up! Kailey was so shy that day but if you see her flowergirl basket went to good use with her Bandit hanging out! I can't wait to see her album. I love my family and we have so many precious pictures of them all. Here is the link if you'd like to view them. http://www.ashleydavidphotography.com/wedding-photography/wilmington-nc-kure-beach-wedding-photographer/

    forgiven We'll have to try to get together. Life has been more than nuts for me lately and I need to get back to having fun. I'm sure there were millions of laughs with Vicki around! LOL

    I know lots of you are having trouble posting pictures and I do this from a completely selfish purpose, I love to see everybody's work and with the restrictions of the website I don't think we're seeing as much sharing. Until that gets resolved I thought I'd do up a tutorial of how to post pictures using Flickr. I'm finding Flickr to be a good option. You can create albums and mark them private if you want to. If you run out of space it is very reasonably priced to upgrade. I made a PDF file. Here you go.

    To get the picture to post you have to click on the picture, click on share (on top left hand side of the picture), under the grab HTML/bbcode section check the bubble next to BBcode, then copy the link in that section (Grab HTML/BBcode) paste into this thread. The quilt is gorgeous!

    I've had this done since Aug. but just didn't have time to upload pictures. This is the 3rd of 3 quilts I did for a customer who made a quilt for each of her 3 children. I love applique and I had fun quilting them all. Originally she wanted echo qulting for all 3 quilts but I think I talked her into letting me do my thing. This was my favorite so I saved it for last. She was thrilled with it. I'm always happy when my customers are happy.DSCN4355 by merrih2, on Flickr

    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from Farmwife Darlene in NQR pray request - update 7   
    Looks like I can't update the topic anymore so I'll have to add in here. I just got some great news! Rachael's PET scan shows no live cells!!!!!!! All of your prayers have worked. She still has 2 more rounds of chemo and radiation but her family and friends are so thankful! She continues to amaze me!

    So today we got to go to DIL's ultrasound and found out that It's a GIRL! Kailey will have a sister to play with. Ultrasounds have just come so far. It is amazing how much detail you can see.

    Only 2 more days! It is going so quick. I've been up since 5, ok well I don't think I ever slept. It was cake baking day and I started about 8:30, didn't want to wake everybody else so I worked on a couple of other things. I've gotten the cake pops, chocolate popcorn and cakes baked. I have 2 layers of frosting on and only 2 more to go and then I get to quilt them! LOL yup it will have swirls on the top layer, cross hatching with monogram in the middle and feather meander on the bottom layer. I was thrilled that daughter loved it! I'll get up early, well ok maybe not too early, and finish up on the cakes. I at least feel like I have a much better handle on things. My stomach was so upset much of today. I think it was just the anxiety of the cake. It is a huge cake, enough to feed the county I think, and we only have 27 guest! LOL It is the cake my daugher wants so it is worth it. I hope it is as beautiful as we have imagined it will be. Daughter had her hair and make-up dry run today and she looked so beautiful! I know I will cry when we are ready to go and I pray I don't have black streaks running down my face! I can't wait until her father sees her!
    I need to go sleep. It is going to take me a bit to get used to the new forum but I like the new features!

    That is just lovely that she was able to bring so much tradition and the past into the present. I love that! Unfortunately neither grandmothers chose to come. I can't say I'm diappointed that MIL didn't come but that was no surprise at all. She never came to see us when we lived her, in fact she had never stepped foot in my house for 22 years while hubby was on active duty. My mother didn't come either and that was somewhat disappointing but it will clearly be less drama. I'm just sad for my daughter that her grandparents aren't (haven't) ever been there for her. It is all good though. 2 of hubby's brothers are coming and we'll have a lovely small wedding. That is what daughter wanted and she said the important people to her will be there and they will! The garter I made out of lace from my wedding dress and it is has a pin on it that my mother gave me when I got engaged, it says Taken. I also have the hanky that my Grandmother gave me to carry at my wedding. It was hand crocheted by my Great Grandmother so daughter will have a few special things.
