Spring Happenings

Yes, I've been lax in postings. I've been doing yard work after a very long winter. Doing it and enjoying it. A little here and a little there adds up to ALL of it done painlessly. I've also been doing housework, trying to keep things neat, so if there happens to be a showing scheduled I can be ready with a couple hours notice. And last, when I usually tend to post (early morning) I've been taking my coffee lakeside. So, so nice. Peaceful. Lovely.

And speaking of lovely, yesterday was a Frayed Edges Day (without Hannah and Deborah :(). I had planned a project, nothing special, just something to DO. We made blocks similar to the ones on the cover of Lesley Riley's new book, Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur.

This is Kate's work in progress and mine is the finished example I made earlier. It was fun to have something to work on during our meeting. And interesting how we went from non stop talking and sharing, to hands on quiet artist mode, all working side by side. And as Kate pointed out, with very little direction.

Before Deborah moved to Texas she would always take a picture of lunch table so this is in her honor...fresh spinach salad with red onion, mandarin oranges and toasted almonds along with sliced tomatoes, avocados and ranch dressing piled on a toasted english muffin (delish!).

We finished with homemade chocolate cake by Sarah, seen here wearing her repurposed vest from her son's castoffs.

I have very clever and talented friends. Kate's top, by the way? She found it at her local Recycling Barn. At the transfer station. The dump. We've all been very envious of her Recycling Barn at one time or another.
