This weekend was the culmination of a long haul for my youngest daughter. Rebecca earned her BA and 10 family members came to help celebrate. We had house guests from California, Virginia, Minnesota, and Texas, and had a terrific time. Although it's been cold and rainy, Saturday was sunny and 70, perfect for the ceremony and playing bocce and drinking rhubarbaritas. All in all, it was an excellent day (and weekend).
I'm heading to quilt market later this week, so Pearl the Squirrel may continue to be quiet, but next week I should have lots of photos and tales of the city (Minneapolis, this time).
After nearly 13 years as a writer and editor at the University of Iowa, I'm a full time freelancer. I specialize in writing for quilting, sewing, and crafts publications and blogs. I love all things textile-related and my dog Pearl feels the same way. We both delight in fabric and yarn—I like to use it and she likes to roll around in it. Please ask permission before using any photos or text from this blog. Thanks!
