Anyway, Saturday afternoon we stitched and sorted stash. Diane wanted to go out and get some grapes from our arbor to munch on, and we ended up harvesting all the green grapes AND the concords.
We had so much (and there are more than half left on the vines) that we went around and shared with neighbors - five other families. And THEN we decided to juice the concords, and ended up with several quarts of grape juice (which we may bring to the Retreat).
Today, Sunday, we visited JoAnn’s fabric store (BRUCE wanted to go, so we tagged along). True story - he needed foam paint brushes, a new glue gun and glue sticks. Diane bought some beads and I got a quarter yard of some lovely embossed velvet.
When we got home in the afternoon, we had a visit from a green thing.
OOOOOOPS……….. wrong picture. Here is the green thing that visited:
The Fabric Fairy!!!!!!!
She just dropped by for a moment to make sure we had all the stash in order for the CQI Stash Dash at Estes Park Colorado. She will fly back to officiate at that time. Anyway, she flew off to help Shari Jensen in Colorado gather stash donations for the needleworking fire victims in Bastrop, TX. Shari has been very busy!
After Bruce barbecued steak for dinner, Diane and I did some more stitching and gathering supplies. Now we are off to watch another episode of the Tudors and drool over the costumes. To say nothing of the actors
We will hopefully be able to check in again after tomorrow. We are having lunch with my friend Bev and then all going to the Humanitarian Center to find more stash.
Until next report….
