Another off topic....
  Re: (...)
So I haven't been around much the last few weeks, and this is why....

Finally ready for final fitting and hemming, I've forgotton how long it takes to make a dress that takes a total of 25 yards of fabric.. (It's the flower girl's dress, I had to hand pleat all that fabric because I couldn't find it commercially)

Now, I can get back to cooking.

Wow! You are multi-talented for sure. Please post photos of the flower girl in it, too.

That dress is absolutely luscious. Part of me misses doing that kind of stuff. I can truly appreciate the amount of work that went into that!

I don't sew as much as I used to and sometimes miss it also, although I never made anything quite like that, PJ. You do beautiful work! Sorry to be so forgetful, but when is the wedding again? Be sure to post pics!

I have always believed it takes years, a mother, a grandmother, a designer, an artist, a chef, a color cordinator, a makeup expert, someone with a Phd in Janitorial Studies, and a counselor, in addition to regular school and eduction to create a woman. When do you all sleep? You make my point. It's easy being a man.

What a beautiful dress! Great work PJ.

I must second Bill and Billy's comments and throw in my own...of course it takes all of those things to create a woman...a woman may someday become a Mom and need to perform ALL of those duties and more.

Kind of makes you wonder why we don't do Mother's Day once a week at the least...

PJ! All that and more! I love the guys comments! AMEN!

Now that I feel totally inadequate.....LOL! Just kidding!

Look forward to you getting back to cooking though!

Can't wait to see the pics of the whole thing. I didn't remember you having a daughter getting married though...HMMMM? CRS is soooo catchy! So many goings on this summer!

Now put us all out of our misery and give us the details ONE MORE TIME....LOL!
Keep your mind wide open.

Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Well done!! I can barely sew on a button.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
