Before we take the neighborhood tour, some fiber talk. I finished quilting my 12 X 12 identity piece. I have to finish off the corners of the satin stitching and photograph it and I can check it off my list of things to do before Kansas City. I also finished the scrap piece that I started when Mia was here on Thursday. This is Scrap 050209.
These are only about 3″ by 5″. This one has scraps of an old silk dress of mine and a blouse that belonged to Sue Benner’s mother.
Today when we took Maggie for a walk, I took my camera along. You know it is spring and the end of the semester, when Reed College puts up signs telling us we can’t come on campus until next Monday and things like this spring up on the lawn. The event starts with a parade of seniors, through a throng of students accompanied by exuberant music, as they turn in their senior theses.
This was parked on the street with some weirdly dressed folks coming and going.
It was a beautiful morning. We had lots of rain later in the day, but with plenty of sun breaks. I took som photos of some of the beautiful color. All of the photos can be seen in my Eastmoreland Neighborhood Flickr Set.
RED: Japanese Maples and chairs
PINK: Dogwood in our backyard
GREEN: Our front yard
Mr C and I went out for dinner and now we are watching the first season of The Tudors. The costumes and sets are just incredible. Being Episcopalian, this story was part of our theology class last year. I love seeing the different ways this story has been told. This one is quite spectacular. I must say, I have never seen such an attractive Henry, before.
