Gifts for Courtney

Wedding Bells rang this summer for a friend.  She asked me to create her garter and one for her to toss.

 A penny (for luck)  from the year of her birth was stitched into a small pocket behind the crystal heart. 

Courtney is a gifted musician and vocalist.  To hear her play the harp or sing is like listening to an angel.  When I saw this fabric at a quilt show,  with images of Brides and sheet music,  I knew it was perfect for Courtney and her special day.
 Brian Haggard's book "Embroidered Memories, provided all the inspiration for the stitching.

 Buttons  add a special touch.

 Adding the date will help Phillip not forget their anniversary!

 If you get a chance, check out the retreat Brian is hosting in early November.
 How wonderful to be able to sit side-by-side with Brian and learn his techniques!
 Courtney had a beautiful wedding and the garter she tossed, was proudly worn on the head of the young man that caught it....Let's just say, "A good time was had by all!"
Love to all,
