Fun weekend

I finally finished hooking my Flowerbox rug! I worked on the border while watching TV in the evening and now for the backing. It feels good to get this rug completed, I've been working on it for years!

This little bird got hooked up during the week, too. Now needs to get finished up as well.

In the meantime, my oldest son, Jason, graduated from SBCC with honors and heads off to
UC Berkeley with his 2 best friends. We celebrated with a Barbeque at his friends home.
While shopping at the Farmers Market for things to bring I ran into Nina Bagley, my first teacher at Artfest and maker of wonderful jewelry and other things. We got to chat for a few moments- a fun surprise on a beautiful Saturday morning before heading off to Crushcakes for treats for the graduates and Whole Foods for a chocolate raspberry mousse cake for dessert.
