Our Lutsen, MN wedding was at the Lutsen Resort. (See previous post.) The day was beautiful, although possible rain worried us. What a lovely venue it was, and with Friend Karen's event planning expertise, and the bride and groom's obvious happiness, the day was a delight.

Introducing: The Midwest Farmer's Daughter blog. Daughter M. got a camera for Christmas and is learning to use it well. She wanted to start a blog, but is "underage." Since I can have two blogs on my account, she started it under my account. You can see it at midwestsfarmersdaughter.blogspot.com Note that the address uses midwests (with an s) We had to use "midwests" because the other address was already taken by someone else.

this pattern, more or less. I used white yarn and colored yarn doubled for the rainbow pastel one. I only used double yarn on the purple stripes of the first one. The yellow was a very heavy baby yarn.

Drama Camp ended on a high note last week with our first home school musical performance. The large cast presented the melodrama "No, No, A Million Times No!" It was a rollicking story of young Nellie Quackenbush, a farm girl lured to the city by the devious promises of a dastardly but attractive city man. All was well in the end, when she returned to her hometown love, Noble Heart.

L's friend Hannah had a brother get engaged this week, so weddings were on the girls' minds. During M's confirmation brunch, they got to talking about wedding dresses and they wondered if they could try on my wedding dress.
It fit pretty well. It was my mother's wedding dress. I had planned to have it altered before my wedding, but after I found my new veil (hers had disintegrated from age and poor packing) it looked fine, so we decided not to change it. The veil cost about $50 in 1981.
Here is a picture of my folks (and the dress) on their wedding day. I had to steal the image from my sister's blog because I can't locate my hard copy of it.
