My (now) traditional shot of myself eating a hot beignet and sipping cafe au lait at Cafe Du Monde on the way to the airport with my bosom bud, Robyn, and her three little budlings. My ever wonderful husband sent me down solo to see her this past weekend and we had a great time together. I'm such a lucky girl.
There was much talking (or visiting, as we say in the South), drinking of coffee, sitting on the patio watching her kids play, eating of fantastic foods (she is a truly gifted cook and makes almost everything they eat from scratch), shopping (trying on fantasy dresses here and here), fashion and pattern sewing consultations, and of course, some crafting.
I so try to be polite and wait to go in her craft room until I'm invited, but I can't ever seem to swing that. As soon as her back is turned I sneak in there to see everything. There is an entire bookcase filled with delicious fabrics and another bookcase filled with craft books. I think the whole time I was there I had a craft book in one hand and a fork in the other.
I'll show the crafted stuff later and also I'm trying to get Robyn (pretty please) to take some shots of some of her decor to show you (I didn't have my good camera with me), but for now, there is a new feature for you if you prefer to subscribe to the blog by email instead of a reader. Look for the new link on the right sidebar, over there >>>
