How Could I Be So Forgetful?

Okay, remember Alex, mentioned in this post?

Alex proposed (a couple months ago! :-P )... and she said yes. :-D

So now I'm getting ready to embark on sewing three out of the five bridesmaid dresses. They will be made in cornflower blue satin (JoAnn's Casa Collection) and have dark blue sashes. I'll be using this pattern:

with some alterations.

I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!

*off to cut out some mock-ups*

(I'll nag Marianne and see if she will post more about the proposal here...it's very cute. ;-) )
