Thursday Madness!

What a day!
Our office had our annual picnic for our consumers (aka clients) today - it's a stressful event for all of us, as we do everything - the cooking, the serving, the cleaning up, and, of course, BINGO. By the time we're back to the office and everything's put away, we're wiped out. And we do not open the doors, we all just go crash.

BUT. This year, in addition, my Red Hat's group had it's monthly dinner tonight, as well. So I came home from one feasting event, pulled out the red and purple, fancied up, and strutted out in style to one of our nicer restaurants in town...Coach & Four. And feasted yet again this time on yummy prime rib. I would not have missed it for the world...!

Before everything got underway today, Dani emailed to tell me she'd finished the crocheting together all the squares everyone made for Rae after the fire that destroyed her home and all her belongings. Knitters from all over contributed 6 inch squares of mostly sock yarns (Rae is an avid sock knitter, and only wears handknit socks!) and Dani generously devoted a lot of her time to sew them all together to form:

A lap blanket of many colors!
Dani dropped by my office before we closed up for the day and delivered this into my safekeeping for passing on to Rae tonight at Red Hats!
And you know, if it was in my house, it had to pass The Meezer's test....

Dani? It did! And Rae was delighted! (I didn't have my camera and we were too tired, but she tossed it over her shoulders and said it was wonderful! And sends her deepest thanks to everyone!

(oh. I believe there's to be a photo of a certain Knitnana in baseball cap, knitting a sock at the annual picnic today...CW has promised he'll email it, and I'll post it for all to chuckle over! But I am determined to finish the last of the Flaming June second sock before 11:59 p.m. tomorrow night - in time to start Summer of Socks 08!)

DH and I were at Coach and Four Tuesday night - I love the Greek Salad (no anchovies, please)they serve. The throw is beautiful and I spot a couple of the squares I made!

I am glad to hear that Rae liked it. I will post some more pictures of it this weekend on my blog!

That's a gorgeous blanket! And it sounds like you had a great day to go with it, as exhausting as I'm guessing it was.

The blanket turned out beautifully. I like the way that the different self-striping yarns add texture. Dani did a wonderful job arranging the blocks.

What a great gift... especially since it got the Meezer Seal of Approval!

What a gorgeous blanket and a generous gift. I can see why Rae was so delighted.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
