Scenes of Summer


How was your summer? Mine was filled with extraordinary moments shared with extraordinary friends...

Like Wanda Hanson of Exuberant Color who surprised me with this remarkable gift -- one of her signature batik colorwash quilts. Read more about it here


It hangs nearby so I can enjoy it every day!


My quilting friends bring "show and tell" whenever they visit. They inspire me to keep "thinking quilts" even though I can't make them anymore.


Foody friends shared the bounty of their gardens and kitchens: fresh-picked cherry tomatoes and basil, delicious peach cobbler, and the best blueberry pie I've ever tasted!


Local troubadour, Bill Glaysher, entertained me with song one fine afternoon.


Which enabling friend helped make this fabric purchase? The colors and prints were irresistible.


I asked a bookish friend to read aloud to me. Pure bliss! 
  


My friend, Linda, hosted a beautiful bridal shower for her daughter and son-in-law-to-be. What lured me out on a 97-degree day was the promise of mango mimosas and eight different kinds of cake!




By summer’s end, my friends had me convinced that I’m worthy of love, respect, and the occasional niceties of life. That's the best gift of all!
