I'm calling it "Midtown Midsummer Madness" We often walk Barker through Piedmont Park when we are staying in Midtown, and this is the view that we see across the meadow: lots of lush and glorious trees with a backdrop of the most incredible skyrises along Peachtree Street. The building on the left is one of the two Mayfair condos. We call the one in the center the wings, and I am not sure what the one on the right is, but it is my favorite. It always looks like shimmering water! I hand-dyed the fabrics and then fused it all together and quilted it with slither, which I ADORE!!!
Yesterday I taught my "Somethin Fishy" class at Intown Quilters. Only four brave souls signed up for it, but that was quite enough, as we had a ton to cover in the allotted time. Here are the fish that my "girls" made:
I apologize for not cropping this before it got posted, but that's just how my life is going these days!!! Aren't they great fish!!!! Each one truly fits its owner's personality. The one in the upper left hand corner was composed by Claudia, the mother of two boys and two male doggies...isn't it funny that she chose pastels for her fish?This is Claudia and her mom, Susan.
And here are Ellen and Gay, proudly displaying their fishies. They both own new embossing machines, which are quite incredible. Gay brought hers to class and we had a great time fooling around with it...after hours, of course!
Thanks, ladies, for spending your Sunday afternoon with me! Let's do it again!!
I enjoyed a quick but wonderful lunch with my daughter Kristin today. She was passing through town on business and had just enough time to fit me and lunch into her schedule...and she treated me!!! We ate at 2 Dog Cafe ("the dog") and I had their incredible Caesar Salad with tons of croutons. Kristin loved their homemade chicken salad sandwich with a side of Mexican slaw. There's nothin' quite like an adult child! All in all, I'd rate today as a 10...and yesterday too...and come to think of it, Saturday was pretty darned awesome as well!
