Good Neighbors and a Re-done Throw!
Our dear friends and neighbors, the Dyers and the Coopers, who moved from our Guittard neighbor-hood with us to Deer Creek Drive, have determined to get together once a month for dinner. Here you see Thelma and Bill Cooper and Bob, on their back screened-in porch, from which you can see our house. We had wine, grapes, hummus, and
We hosted the first, a "break-
fast for supper,"
and then last evening, Thelma and Bill hosted us. We then went inside for a delicious dinner. Genie was not feeling well and couldn't join us, but here are Thelma and Bill, Preston and me.
When we returned home, I got to work re-doing grandson Locke's new throw. I had not cut the fringe deeply enough and had tied the two pieces of the fringe too tightly. So I untied all of them while watching American Idol (yes, I am a guilty fan!) and then made the cuts a bit longer, and then tied them more loosely. As a result the throw is much flatter, and the knots, softer, more comfortable!
