She's the spittin' image of me, but she seems to have lost her head somewhere along the way....and those shapely legs! And what is she doing in the kitchen (not enough light to photograph her anyplace else tonight!)?? I finally bit the bullet and bought myself a dress form: something I've been contemplating for a very long time, and actually something I've always wanted! But the gall of this Ethel: she is wearing an outfit that I had designed for myself!! I'm going to have to have a serious talk with her!!! I dyed both the skirt and the tee fabric, need to put the finishing touches on the tee and also hem the skirt. Ethel will make my life so much easier!
I've had a busy week with baseball games, Dr's appointments, a quarterly conference at my Mom's skilled care facility to make sure we all remain on the same page as to her care (they were not, but I set them straight!), and a wonderful visit yesterday with my fiber artist friend Anne. We don't get together often enough, and whenever we do, we vow that we won't let so much time pass before the next. This time, I went to her lovely home, and she even prepared a yummy lunch! We chatted, ate, chatted some more, and then she gave me a tour of her incredible studio:
Ahhhhhhh: so much light and so clean!!!!! I am totally inspired! Anne does the most incredible painting on silk...and she sews, and quilts, and she is simply delightful........oh, and she's a Gemini just like me!!!
I've also been cooking up a storm and knitting some new things....I can once again see sock yarn and knit on small needles!!!! Life is incredibly good!!!
PEACE TO YOU!!!!
