Coincidentally, our cousins from Florida and their young, hip, and good lookin' NYC chilluns are vacationing about an hour north of us for two weeks, so we all got together yesterday to celebrate Catherine's day. Our weather here has been delightful and deliciously cool, which made our get-together even more pleasant. I snapped a few candid pics and will share them with you. I hope you can get a feel for the fun we all were having.
I dyed that tee for Catherine and had a ball creating it. The colors are just wild and they make me very happy. I hope she will feel a similar exhilaration when she wears it. Here is a closeup of some of the happy colors:
Catherine's Mom asked me to dye a jacket and pants in blue for the birthday girl. Once again, I had fun with this project, but since she would be wearing it in church while performing with the choir, I decided they needed to be a bit more subdued. Here's the jacket:
and here are the pants:
the colors actually do coordinate......the lighting wasn't always the same when I snapped these pics
Here's my faithful studio dog, doing his guard duty as I worked on Catherine's duds:
Thanks to all of C's fabulous family for making yesterday so much fun. Barker was exhausted after his day with Gus and Noelle, but he was happy to have made some new friends.
