The Many Gifts of Friendship…

DSC02218

Yay, the sun is shining in the studio this morning and we have a new hibiscus to welcome !

I also welcomed my friend Suzanne on Sunday late afternoon.

She is here for most of the week, sharing her March break from teaching kindergarten in Montreal with me.

It is always a gift when Suzy comes.

One of my oldest friends,

whom I have been through so much with,

who gets me,

whom it is easy for me to spend time with.

Her friendship is a gift in my life.

She also came bearing some other sweet gifts.

Suzanne is a talented artist.

She works mostly in felting and textiles as well as stained glass.

And look what works of art became mine this week :

This gorgeous orange-y felt scarf that I admired around her neck and that became mine ! Winking smile

I call it my Patti Digh scarf as it looks like one my favorite writer sports often !

And this custom made for ME black silk scarf with beautiful bursts of orange, green and blue wool fibers !

I love them !!!

And I feel oh so glamorous as I don the black one to head out for our fun day of shopping, (art stores and wool stores of course !), ladies lunching and some time ay the bookstore perusing the pages over a nice yummy coffee of some kind !

So not too much art making today,

It is coming in beautifully here !

Enjoy !
