The trunk show was a lot of fun. It was sad that it was my last day of work, but we all went out afterwards! I forgot to take pictures of the corduroy skirts. I will take one today when I go up to M to say goodbye. You can kind of see them in the pictures.

Brian and Amy’s wedding was beautiful. Despite the chiller than expected weather it was perfect. It was held outside at Rose Hill Estate in Aiken, which was such a gorgeous place. I wish I would have gotten more pictures, but I was just too cold.
Amy and me at the rehearsal dinner. I made 2 dresses to choose from for the rehearsal dinner. There will be one that resembles this one at the trunk show!
Will and I before the wedding. My brother loves to wear his ellen&ollie ties!
A few of my cousins. Elizabeth, the girl in the middle, has on a dress from M!
I got so many compliments on the shawl I wore. It was my grandmother’s.

My cousin Brian is getting married this weekend. I can’t decide which dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner and which one to wear to the wedding. I want to wear a Mint dress to one and an ellen&ollie to the other. The dress I am wearing in the pictures is the Mint dress I am going to wear. It’s my favorite Mint dress. I want my grandmother and aunts to see it. The two girls on the right in the middle picture were my first ellen&ollie customers!

I made these dresses for the girl I order the majority of my fabric from. I have been ordering fabric from fabricworm since before I was making dresses. The fabric I used for my very first dress came for fabricworm. I was honored when she asked me to make dresses for her to wear to the Quilt Market. I was so excited to work with the Japanese fabrics she picked out! I had enough of the strawberry fabric left over to make her a skirt!

I do not know where to begin with this blog post. When I met Jodi Arnold last week she offered to help me out in any way she could. I was very surprised with how nice she was. I never imagined someone in her position wanting to help someone like me. She is so busy, how could she even think about helping me? I met with her again Thursday and she said I could come up for a week and stay with her!! I couldn’t believe she was going to let me stay with her. She said I could go to work with her everyday and see everything that goes on. I was freaking out so excited all weekend. I emailed her Monday to see when I could come, because I was so anxious to go and see everything. I was planning to go for a week after my trunk show on the 21st. THEN she emailed me Tuesday and asked me to be a design intern!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe this is happening!! I’m leaving right after the trunk show!

Last night was so fun. Jodi Arnold was really really nice! I can’t believe how down to earth she is. She was so easy to talk to. I wasn’t even nervous talking to her. I am glad Emily was there though! These are a few pictures of Emily and I with Jodi Arnold!
