Mmmm, yum ~

Had a good dinner at the Fountain Bistro which is less than a mile from my parents’ house.  It was the first outing for mom after her stroke ~ she was in great shape!  I couldn’t even see and facial changes. Her speech was fine, and she didn’t have any trouble eating.  The food was good, the service was good, and the wine was good.  Mom even made me tapioca in place of a birthday cake for dessert.  Who wants cake anyway.


Mom wrapped my gifts with the usual care and included some lily of the valley instead of a bow because the birthday card had lily of the valley – she didn’t realize that lily of the valley is the May flower.



I came home visited with the cat who was eager to get in my lap.  Too eager that is.  I was trying to walk around him and he decided to bit me on the ankle like a dog.  Yes, the cat is moody sometimes ~ he is a Siamese you know.


Most of my day was spent weaving on a tapestry sampler that I started in the Sarah Swett workshop last weekend. Although, I didn’t get much weaving done in the workshop since I was running back and forth to the hospital during the three day workshop. So I had decided that today, my birthday, was going to be my weaving day. 

I missed most of the lecture about tapestry weaving technique, but I did get to absorb positive energy from the group.

Here is my little curve sampler ~ swirling ribbon.  I can see where I need to improve in area and my selvedges got a little wonky as I was trying to hurry and get done.  But all in all, I think it is an okay little piece.  It, Sarah, and the workshop certainly inspired me to weave more!
