Happy Wednesday! After a beautiful drive through Washington and along the gorgeous Columbia Gorge in Oregon I arrived safe and sound yesterday afternoon. Just look at the picture of Mt. Hood from miles and miles away. The top was covered by clouds and I was driving 65 mph but I still think it's an amazing site.
Next post I'll show pictures of pretty Piper, but first look at the fun we four girls had. We spent a happy few hours at Olive Garden in Gresham, OR. Well over two hours and we could easily have talked much, much longer.
Gracie and Teresa shared their beautiful bunnies. They used the same pattern but each is very unique and precious.
Taci modeled my Pimpeliese Shawl and it was so beautiful on her I gave it to her. She didn't even seem to mind that I've worn it!!! I think it looks beautiful on her.
Then Teresa and Taci gave Gracie an impromptu lesson on her crocheted shawl. Teresa's shawl is done, (her second one), and Gracie's is just begun. I'm planning to buy yarn for my own in the next day or two.
We gave each other little gifts too. Taci made us magnets for our refrigerators. She made one of mine to match the IKEA tins I showed you in my last post. How clever! Teresa gave us each fresh eggs from her wonderful chickens. Yum! Gracie made us each two cup cozies. I'm using mine right now around my cup of hot cocoa.
Thank you girls. Precious gifts all, but your friendship is the greatest gift. I love blogging. Just look at the wonderful friends I've made this way.
We're all planning to meet Friday night at Taci's for knit-night. I'll start my new shawl then because I'll have lots of help with all three coaches there! Fun!
I wish each if you lived close enough to join in our lunches. I've come to cherish each of them and feel so blessed to know them personally.
As I said before, I'll be back soon with Piper news. :-)
