Monday, a week ago, my sorority sister, Connie, visited, and we enjoyed the day together. In the afternoon we went to the Panama Hotel for tea. If you've read The Hotel on Bitter and Sweet, you'll recognize that name.
Then on Thursday, instead of our normal stuff, we spent the day with our friends from Virginia, who left for Alaska on Sunday. It was another beautiful day, so we took the ferry to Bainbridge Island. Of course, we stopped at Mora's for ice cream and Churchmouse Yarn and Tea! As we left Seattle behind, we had a great view of the city and the Space Needle.
I was especially excited to see all the Allium in full bloom.
And Mount Rainier was out in all its glory, too.
Meanwhile, back home, our flowers are also putting on a show. Out front the Rhododendron is blooming and trying to out shine the Mollis azalea.
And in the back the Golden Chain tree is raining petals, and the Korean Dogwood is filled with blooms. (There's lots of raking in my future, I think!)
Inside, Ginger has claimed the leftovers from the Monster project and was using it as a pillow until Dick took the photo.
That is the strangest yarn; sometimes it looks gray, sometimes green, and in the photo below, blue. It's really blue-grey.
The other project that was finished was fun to do. It is a kit that includes the cat's body parts which are sewn on at the end. There were other animal choices as well as a cat. So this is what's been going on here; I still have a sweater to sew together, but that will keep till another day.
Heal quickly Missy! And the rest of you have an awesome week.
