One of my team members at work was keeping her 21st birthday a secret this past week, and when I found out, I decided to make her a Birthday Stocking. Never heard of it? Neither had I, but maybe I've started a new tradition. I hadn't sewn anything in ages, and it was fun to throw it together. I don't have much quilting fabric left, having donated most of it to the Center, but I had some of Gisell's favorite color, found some glitzy embroidery thread and whipped it up. It was a lot of fun, and gave me lots of ideas for future Birthday Stockings.
After I posted last week, I went to work to have dinner with one of my heroes, Ruth Reichl. Ms. Reichl was the Editor in Chief at Gourmet magazine for ten years before Conde Naste pulled the plug three years ago. All the artisans met this past Wednesday to have dinner with her, each bringing something from the upcoming Blackberry Farm cookbook. I brought coconut cream pie, which looked beautiful, but stuck fast to the pan! At least the coconut cream was yummy! The dinner was fun, and we all had a good time.
Next week, I'll be back at that warp, weaving more napkins and thinking ahead to Lee's Surrender. Carol's ordered the yarn, and I'm already computing how many repeats I'll need. Until next week, happy weaving!
