A Busy Week

     This past week was even busier than usual. On Monday morning, I met friends at a local coffee shop for our weekly Italian conversation practice. In the evening I had my regular Italian lesson.
     On Tuesday, I met friends for breakfast. Then my godchild and her two little girls came for a visit.  It is so much fun watching the girls play with Emma. Later that evening, I attended a meeting at the camera club to which I belong. One of the members filled in on short notice for a speaker who had to cancel. Our member explained the printmaking technique which she has developed using polymer photogravure etching. Yes, the process appeared to be every bit as complicated and involved as it sounds, but it was fascinating to see her beautiful prints and discover her passion for her art.
     Wednesday was a typical day with a session at the gym and later a flute lesson. Thursday was a catch-up day for shopping and errands. Friday, I met friends for lunch, and yesterday I went to a really fun birthday party for my youngest  cousin. The party had originally been scheduled for today, but with the predictions of stormy weather the party was moved up a day. Fortunately, everyone was able to come and a wonderful time was had by all. There was lots of high energy and little ones racing around. The birthday boy is now one, and he is the happiest, cutest, most adorable little guy. 
     I made the penguin holiday wallhanging above for my godchild for her birthday and presented it to her on Tuesday.  I loved the penguin border fabric and how the piece turned out so much that I made one for myself as well. ;-) [This pattern was from the McCall's Quick Quilts - Dec./Jan.2013 issue.]
