Here are links to the latest pics of Jen's Bento Box on Carla's blog and Suanne's Dessert Plate on Lori's blog. The sushi roll and edamame beans (great minds, eh? ...hee hee) as well as the cheesecake and tart look oh, so nummy.

Well...here it is...the last plate in our fabulous Progressive Dinner fibre feast round robin. This has been so much fun, I really didn't want it to end. When trying to decide what to add to Laurie's appetizer plate, I struggled at first. Then I came to the realization that I had felted something on each of the plates, so why stop now. So, I decided I would go with something that seems to be on every restaurant menu these days...edamame beans. Now, I await with anticipation the return of my breakfast plate and all its wonderful goodies.

Nothing like waiting until the last minute. There has been an exhibit here in Vancouver since mid-September. We all agreed we wanted to see it and we FINALLY got some on-line tickets (last week) for yesterday...the final day of the exhibit. It was called 'Body Worlds 3' by Dr. Gunther von Hagens. You may have heard of it. It is a display of real human bodies preserved using a process called Plastination.

Our fiber food has been included in the latest issue of Portals Zine. What a treat for me, as this is the first time any of my art has been published!

Back in November, I was reading a post on Lori's blog and I saw some wonderful fabrics she had recently purchased. Lori was kind enough to mention the lines (Building Blocks for American Jane Patterns-Sandy Klop for Moda fabrics, by the way), which made it easier to find when I decided I must have some for myself. So, I went to www.equilter.com and searched for the fabrics and voila...
Aren't they just nummy?
Can't wait to use them in a project.

So, here we are at the start of another new year...someone called it "the Bond year". Kinda cute.
One of the things I like about the start of a year is hanging up the new calendar. It signifies the top for me, like I am on a mountain where I will slowly wind my way along the switchbacks until ending up in the valley which is December once again.
Here's to all the possibilities a fresh new year can bring.
During the holidays, we made a trip over to Vancouver Island to visit with the families. While there, we dropped in at the new Starbucks (conveniently located just a few blocks from my mom's house). As we headed out with warm beverages in hand, we looked over to see them tearing down the neighbouring McDonald's (whose sign read "Reopen Spring 2007").
Well, this particular McDonald's holds some very special memories for Stephen and I. It was where we were both working in March 1979 when we first met...and it was where Stephen asked me out on our first date. So, it was with a touch of sorrow and nostalgia that we watched the dozer take bite after bite out of the landmark which represented the beginning of our life together some 27 years ago...*heavy sigh*
