We were up in Maine last week--okay we came home last Monday--and that return was followed by back-to-back work retreats. (And there's another one this week!) So I'm just now getting around to reporting that I visited with Maggie*. She's still living la vida loca heading out to her local haunt two nights a week for her martini, although her legs are slowing down and her vision is worsening.
Maggie: Come here and show me your face.
Me: [puts my face three inches from her good eye]
Maggie: Oh, that's you! So tell me, are you fat or skinny?
Me: [glances over to my mother]
Mother: [gives me the "tell the truth" look] (because she believes in The Truth over all else.)
Me: I'm fat. [Puts her hand on my leg.]
Maggie: Now that's a LEG.
Last month I had hoped to complete the dude's annual anniversary piece, but I didn't start it until the end of the month. Still, it's begun. This is 47 Hearts by Silver Creek. I'm using the called-for colors on a fabric of some sort. Sorry about the fold.
I've been working on Christian's Stocking as I prescribed for August. Stay tuned!
