I can’t seem to get back in a productive blogging rhythm — probably because I am not doing anything very creative which is also a problem. I really need to get some work done for upcoming shows and I know that if I get started, I will get in a groove.
I love the table an chairs up there. They were on the sidewalk of a Mexican cafe on Valencia St. where we had dinner one night. They served small plates of delicious food.
Something else I love, this kind of California landscape with sculptural golden hills dotted with live Oaks.
I have been working on this very easy Vogue blouse pattern. I tried it on last night, unfinished, and I need to do some altering.
I did some work in my garden – weeding, pulling out overgrown lettuce and oops!, found these enormous squash that went into the compost.
I have also been diligently stitching the 3×3’s together with beads.
Today, I went on a road trip with my STASH group to McMinnville which is a charming town in the Willamette Valley wine country. Here is a shot of the window with a cool quilt from strips of modern fabric.
Terry and I did some bead shopping at a bead store.
We had a terrific lunch at a French restaurant. This is a selfie I took of Terry and I — ia m in the sun, she is in the shade – I am not really that pale.
Here are Suzy and Reva — you can see that we were having a great time.
I will leave you with this funny, very Portland chain link fence installation which is on the way to the Rhodie Garden.
