I love summer. The light, the warmth, the flowers the smells of cut grass and hot pavement. Iced tea. Oh, yes, lots of iced tea. 

Thursday was a perfect summer day. The STASH group met at Gale's and we sat out in her beautiful yard with our iced tea and discussed (apparently) weighty matters. 

Then Reva brought out the T-shirt quilt she has been working on for months, and spread it on the lawn. 

You've seen T-shirt quilts, right? Usually someone's collection of shirts from all the marathons they have run, or the schools they have attended, etc.  Reva's should be called something like "my life in T-shirts." 

Here she points out some of her favorites.

Then it was time for lunch—we each brought a salad and Gerrie made fresh cherry clafoutis for dessert. We eat well. Always. 

After STASH I picked up Sofia for an abbreviated studio day, and we spent the afternoon sewing. Sofia made bags for us to take to the beach for gathering shells and rocks and other beach treasures. She designed and decorated, sewed a bag for herself, one for Marco and one for me. We all like to comb the beach for goodies. 

Gotta go—headed to the beach! Hope you are having a great summer...


  1. That sounds like such a nice day.

  2. What a great day! I am so hoping to live close enough to my granddaughters one day to do fun things like that!
