A Great Day For A Wedding...

Sherre, walking down the path with her two nephews.
Handsome's brother married his sweetheart, Sherre, on Saturday. They were wed on Nantucket Island, MA at the beautiful Pumpkin Pond Farm. The weather threatened and it was a bit chilly, but the sun shone on the Liljegrens as Bruce and Sherre were pronounced husband and wife.
l-r: Eric (our "Wild Hogs" friend); Bruce, Sherre and Handsome
Handsome added to his resume' when he was given the honor of being the officiant for the nuptials - and was duly authorized by the State of Massachusetts - so we're certain the new couple is "legal".
Here's our latest family photo, only missing our elder son, his wife and our grandson. They were missed, to be sure.After the ceremony, all the guests retired to a large greenhouse, decorated for the reception. Handsome sat down at the drum kit and backed a fabulous group of musicians playing jazz music. He had a ball - and of course, I was tickled to watch him perform in yet another venue.
There were also famous people in our midst. In addition to my new sister-in-law, who is an accomplished artist (click here), noted author Nathaniel Philbrick (click here) attended with his wife...
Actor John Shea (click here) and his wife, Melissa are good friends of our family. (You might remember him as Lex Luthor in Superman, or from his appearances in any number of Law and Order episodes.)...
And every needle worker's heroine, Erika Wilson (click here) attended with her equally famous husband, Vladimir Kagan (click here). Erika was so gracious. We shared a long conversation about needlework, her family and our shared experiences with needlework markets, and then we had our photo taken together.

It was wonderful to spend the weekend with family and friends, and to experience a little fall weather this year, but I'm happy to be back home with Handsome, Kes and Fezzy...and our warmer Florida temperatures. Oh yes, I can't wait to get back into the studio either. I've got lots of ideas swimming around, and it's time to get started on those holiday gift projects!

What a beautiful Bride and her dress choice was outstanding. Such a lovely color and design. Erika Wilson...I would have been tongue tied and tripping over my feet to meet her. No wonder you do such marvelous needlework. I am sure some of EW's genius has rubbed off on you!
