I'm happily working along on the 2nd Dune blanket for my younger granddaughter, Paige. The first one will go to my firstborn grandchild, Jenna. I am changing the colorway slightly so they can tell them apart. I removed a few of the darker colors in the first one and added in a few more lighter colors. This is where I am as of this morning but the whole color sequence has 6 more colors. The bottom 4 are the sandy beach, then 4 sea/ocean colors of aqua, I've done 2 of the sunset colors and then there will be 4 sky colors.
The next color. I should be able to show you the whole colorway at my next post. I will do 4 repeats of the 16 colors. Hopefully this one goes faster than the first one! :-) Lucy has brought out a new blanket called "Dahlia" and Wool Warehouse launched the packs this morning.. and I already purchased mine! It's very colorful and pretty and will brighten up my winter hours by the fire.
We attended the Friends of Multnomah Falls Annual Meeting on Monday. It was held in the lodge and they treated our organization to a dinner of lasagna, rolls, salad and a dessert of apple crisp with vanilla whipped cream. We elected our board and honored volunteers for their service. I was given a gift bag for my 30 years as a founding member of the group. A beautiful re-usable bag, 2 MF etched tumblers, a jar of jam and a box of goodies from Harry & David. :-)
Inside the box are some yummy looking things! Which of these things would you like to try? Me.. it's the Moose Munch.. popcorn covered with caramel and some chocolate drizzled over.
Are you familiar with Marionberries? They are a larger variety of a blackberry.

I was also awarded with a 30 year pin, I will proudly add it to the vest I wear while volunteering. This is the badge we wear, which I designed using the image of the pin I designed. :-)
I have an old friend, Steve Terrill, we met when I purchased his products for sale in the Gift Shop of the Vista House. I've learned a lot from him about photography. The most important thing is - it's better not to take photos on a sunny day as the sun bleaches out the color. He posted this shot on his Facebook page and I asked him if I could share it. Isn't this gorgeous? Click HERE to see more of his amazing works.
Mocha wanted to say hi again. LOL!
We have a rare day with no appointments or meetings. I plan to enjoy the freedom of it all. What are you up to today?
