67 denise November 29, 2007 at 3:41 pm

Hello Brenda –
I am a new subscriber to your podcast – now up to episode 11 or so, and loving it. I am delighted I found your show (through the twiceknit blog) and look forward to getting to know you, and your sweaters, over the next 40+ shows. I started with the most recent episode you posted (just to see if I’d like it ye know) and heard you talk about this dress. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one to initially raise a brow at the pink-with-black-lace description – but WOW. This is one of those times when a picture just brings it all together. She is a stunning bride and just a vision of beauty and happiness,

68 Pamela November 29, 2007 at 10:50 pm

OMG, they are so cute and look so happy. Brava on the dress!

69 Matka Ziedkele November 30, 2007 at 10:00 am

70 Angie November 30, 2007 at 5:14 pm

Huzzah! Congratulations to the happy couple, the doting mater, and the satisfied seamstress!

71 Heidi December 1, 2007 at 2:51 pm

Oh, happy day! The dress is almost as beautiful as Laura and Zak themselves.

72 Mandy December 1, 2007 at 5:55 pm

That dress is stunning!!! What a lucky girl! And congratulations to your son – a girl who lets a future MIL make her dress is certainly a keeper.

73 Faith December 1, 2007 at 6:17 pm

They are so cute together. Fantastic job on the dress!

74 Gwen December 2, 2007 at 5:17 am

Simply gorgeous! Your work looks amazing! The whole look is just fabulous. I’d love to know more about the hairpiece/fascinator. Wow… just beautiful. Congratulations, you’ve finished the dress. Now you can move on to new projects. That can be an unnerving and somewhat lonely time, but with your work on the blog, I’m sure you’ve not a minute to spare. Bella! Bella!

75 Erin December 3, 2007 at 7:26 am

What a stunner that dress is – a true labour of love. Many many best wishes for the couple’s happiness. That gal deserves a pair of Mrs. Beeton’s in black and pink with some sparkly beads. Can you imagine always seeing black and pink and remembering your wedding day, dress and new MIL. How lovely.

Thank you Brenda, it was such a wonderful thing you did for her.
Love Always,
Lauras very proud & lucky Mam.

89 Tatjana November 8, 2008 at 10:44 pm

Coming to this months later as I’m catching up with podcasts … is the photo still around somewhere? After listening to episode 58 I’m all curious about the lace now!:-)
