Our friends Paula and Marc got married on June 21st. They had their wedding at the Fruitland’s Museum in Harvard, MA.

It was such a beautiful place. Paula put so much work into special touches too. She is EXTREMELY crafty.

Here is a view of inside the tent:

And here is a look at the table decorations (all done by Paula too).

And here is a program that doubles as a fan!

And a very cute idea for some take home treats…

Congratulations Paula and Marc! Everything was just lovely!

My last sewing class was Thursday and I’m proud to say that I finally finished some projects!

I made my Heather Bag:

Hopefully I’ll get some better shots of it to post…

I made another bag with an older pattern and some vintage bamboo handles:

And I’m glad the class is over.   I was too flustered from stressful days at work to then go to a class where the frustration would continue.  I think I’d be hard-pressed to take another.  I think for now I’ll happily muddle through on my own.

I have recently and very swiftly developed a nice little fabric stash so hopefully you’ll be seeing more from me soon.

Have a great weekend!

Whew.  It’s finally the end of yet another VERY LONG and VERY BUSY week.  This weekend I have yet another wedding then the Stevie Wonder Concert!  I hope the weather holds out.

Whatever your plans are, I hope you all have a great weekend.

I’ll leave you with a pretty picture.  This is of the grounds at work in Canton.  I’m so lucky to work at such a great place with so much beauty around it!

Purl, the illusionist.

Where’s the kitty?  I can’t find her.  I guess I’ll check the bathroom.  Hmmm.   I still don’t see the kitty.


What is that?

Very suspicious indeed.  Let’s see what’s in there shall we?

Caught in the act and making a run for it.  What a little monkey.

Last Friday night, Tricia, Cesar and Christian came over for dinner.  It was so fun to hang out with them and to hold and play with such a DARN CUTE BABY!!!

Whew.  Ok, got that out of my system. Thanks again Tricia for coming over with the cutest baby on the planet.

Going very green?

Like most, I too am concerned about the environment.  I try to remember to always do what I can to reduce, reuse, recycle.  I usually use my own coffee mug at work instead of their disposable cups, I use fabric bags when grocery shopping, etc.

But lately, I’ve heard people discussing paper towels.  There are many out there that don’t use them.  I can see this working except when cleaning up a “cat episode” or blotting wet chicken out of the package before freezing or cooking it.

Otherwise, I would like to try to make a conscious effort to not reach for a paper towel but instead use some dishcloths.  I feel a lot of dishcloth knitting in my future!
