Still knitting the stash! Summer scarf in the making sitting on my friends deck today w/some complimentary flowers. Beautiful cotton I made a baby blanket out of years ago, no idea the brand or color name. I love the pink/orange combo. I’m praying there’s enough left for me to make this scarf long enough. #stashyarn#knittersofinstagram#knittinglove#crossyourfingers#spring
Finished knitting this fun market bag this weekend. I’m working on finishing my stash before I buy new yarn and I’m almost there, yesssss!! Really trying hard not to! I recently unpacked a mysterious box from our move (a year and a half ago) and found some beautiful yarns that had been packed for 4 years. It was like Christmas!! I had all this awesome red cotton by Araucania yarns & I don’t wear red, so I have no idea what/who it was for. By chance I stumbled on this cool design from Lion Brand. #knitting#knittersofinstagram#rocks#ravelry#araucaniayarns#lionsbrandyarn#knitwithlove#mystery#yarnstash
Just ended mySpring Break with my best friend of 25+ years. It’s so important to me to have close girlfriends, especially those you have gone through good & bad times and the friendship has not only stood the test of time, but strengthened it. I knew my friend before marriage, before kids, birth(s), being a Mom, work & now an empty nester. I feel so lucky to have her in my life. Damn, I feel so lucky to have strong and grounded woman in my life in general! I’m still reflecting on this, but feel pretty honored that I can call a group of my girlfriends my best friends in life. #girlfriends#bestfriends#goofballs#laugh#seriousconversations#foodies#lifeisgood#rejouvination#springbreak2018#nola#atlantaforever
Fantastic fashion exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art; Alexander McQueen!! It was really well displayed and there were other designers there who were influenced by him. Last photo is the majesty himself with Isabel Blow in a giant photo portait. #noma#nolaart#alexandermcqueen#fashion#roadtrip2018
First day of Spring Break in New Orleans. A riverboat ride in the morning & amazing weather! There were bottomless mimosas, but we were to hungry for real food to have more than one. Is this what means to get old??
A visit to Chalmette Battlefield & the history was told to us by an awesome park ranger. #nola#mississippriver#creolequeen#chalmettebattlefield#roadtrip
February artwork from my students. I love to do Thiebaud inspired work with my Painting Class because they love it & Feb. is dreary. The other project is the Valentine Project. How can you visualize love without it being cutesy fluff. It could also be a mockery of Valentines or love. #highschoolart#arteducation#youthartmonth#yam#gaea#stratfordacademy
