Do you recognize these people? Rather fetching, aren't they? I'd seen people talking about "Outlander" on other blogs and when we were clicking around on the television looking for something to watch, I saw this show and said, let's check that out! Oh. My. Goodness. What a good series this is! Now I must warn you - it's not PG or for the faint of heart. But the story is amazingly interesting. We've watched 2 or 3 episodes at a time and have caught up to current showings. I am going to download the first book and read it on the plane. This is set in 1743 Scotland. I just love being taken back to that time and seeing the costumes and castle sets. Love!
This is the hero of the series, Jamie Fraser. Oh. Yeah.
Kristi asked for my camera the other day and captured our little squirrel sitting in the planter.. munch munch.
Last friday I met with Taci to give her the ten little baby hats that I made for her - she is going to Brazil this summer to spend time with her mother and family and her mom collects baby things for underprivileged expectant mothers in a mountain town. Taci wanted to take as many hats as she could collect to help out. Gracie joined us too and brought her three hats.
Our cute little pile of good deeds. :-) It was time to say goodbye to them and think of the sweet little heads that they will warm and protect. And I'm hoping they will be used and passed on and on.
We dined at Boccelli's in Gresham. I always get the Farfalle with mushrooms, asparagus and salmon in a alfredo sauce. Nummers.
Taci surprised me with an early birthday gift! A cute card, some pretty pale aqua cotton, an aqua candle, some Easter chocolate and a neat pocket filled with seeds that you can warm in the microwave oven and put on a sore muscle. Isn't that sweet? Thank you, Taci!
The girls. I brought my bag to show them, it's not finished yet, though. I also brought each of them a big sprig of purple lilacs to take home.
I want to update you on my friends John and Molly at Celtic Swan - who make the wonderful sterling silver crochet hooks. John is very ill and Molly has been taking care of him. John used to make all the crochet hooks but has taught Molly how he did it so she could carry on their business. I ordered two hooks some time ago and Molly's hooks arrived last Wednesday. I am happy to say that Molly has produced two exquisite hooks for me - a C and E - to fill out my collection. I wanted to show you - the one John made is on the top - my beloved G hook - the two below are Molly's work. I am very happy with them.
And so I must bid you adieu for a while. I have to be at the airport at 4 am. Tomorrow night I will be sleeping in an old hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans.. with a balcony out the door and 3 courtyards to enjoy. I will try to post a few photos from my iPad when I have a few moments. I hope you have a good week ahead of you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
