A Handmade Basket from Jan

On my recent trip to Portland, I got a chance to spend some time with friendsc, including Jan.  Jan hosted me in her very nice Pearl District condo ,and also gave  me a beautiful basket that she crocheted from t-shirt yarn.  It is very versatile.  It has apples in it now---I'll use it many ways.  Thanks, Jan.  It is beautiful and warm.  Nice!

Thank you Nancy

When I was in Portland, I got the treat of a luncheon with a group of friends who I really miss now that I have moved to Portland.   Readers of my blog may have guessed that we have a dragonfly theme.   Nancy is one of that group, and she had the lunch at her house.  We had a lot of fun catching up on news with each other and generally just enjoying ourselves.  One of our "traditions" is that the hostess gives everyone a small gift.  Nancy gave us all these dragonflies that can hang from car mirrors....or just hang out around the house, like mine is doing.  This is my little painting of it.  Thanks, Nancy, for this sweet reminder of my friends, and of you.
