A birthday present

Joanna came for dinner and a movie. She brought us an amazing present. It looked almost  like an ordinary pizza on the outside... But inside was a set of unique and amazing placemats. We think they belong among the great quilting masterpieces of the last century. So do Tom and Hairy. Thanks, dear J!

Virtual garden tour 2014

With a bonus pic of Hairy enjoying Zizi's new tent.

Dinner with Lambiegroup

We had such a lovely evening with Max and Kathy. They are many-talented people as you can see. Max gave a recital on the accordion and Kathy makes meals that should be on the cover of "Bon Appetit."

End of the day

Easter is finally over!  I was the official photographer at Easter Vespers this year.
 
Father Ryan greets the newly baptized at the font...
 
 
...while tired members of the Schola look on.
 
 
 
Benediction was lovely as usual.
 
 
And then, time with our family at home!  Playing with Zizi...
 
 
Reading to Zizi....
 
 
It was great.  Happy Easter!

Felted frivolities

We gave up movies for Lent, so we have been forced to make our own. Thanks for the idea, E!

April Fools' Felting


We had a needle felting April Fools' Day. Peggy even made fool for dessert!

The whole morning was epic.
