"The woman to catch the bride's bouquet will be the next to marry"
My illustration is supposed to depict the bride about to throw the bouquet but I don't know if it reads that way. I have looked at it for so long (you know when you look at a word too long and then it doesn't look like it is spelled correctly anymore) I started to worry that it might read more like she is catching it. But then I felt too sick from this nasty cold to fuss with it any more.
Never-the-less I was happy I had time and energy to make something new for IF even in my weakened and sickly state! I had fun looking up superstitions to work on this. I never realized how many are part of our daily lives!

I have a photo in my wedding album of women lunging for the bouquet followed by the men looking at the garter indifferently.
Love your work.
I love this piece...great work!
I too did some research on superstitions and was amazed at how many there are....
Hope you feel better soon!
