That's Wonderful, Wacky, (pre)Wedding Work Weekend...Bride2B, fiancé, and four of their dear friends came up from Los Angeles for the weekend to help us get our place ready for the wedding in October.

There was LOTS of landscaping happening...

occasional dips in the pool to deal with the heat and humidity...

planning for magical spaces...

food prepared and eaten...

many tools used....

and margaritas mixed to celebrate awesome results!

Talk about GRATITUDE! What wonderful friends!

Meanwhile, when I wasn't cooking, I was off in
my studio, making a shirt...

That's M6124, View D (and that's Paddywack to my right). Sorry about the fuzziness, I'm having camera problems...

The fabric is a light-weight cotton ikat from Gorgeous Fabrics

The shoes are new Trippens, found on eBay

A girl can't have too many red shoes...

Talk to you later...
