Stitching on a Friday Afternoon

I met with Alicia and Miwako after class again yesterday afternoon and we finished our beaded ornaments. Ted again let us use his office.




At home, I finished this sashiko panel and I am thinking about making it into a little tote bag.  Margaret commented when I posted the in progress photo a few days ago about the red thread I used.  I thought a little bit of color would be nice.

Progress on tomorrow’s lunch preparations
This morning I am off to the grocery store to buy some things for my American salad luncheon tomorrow. I won’t know exactly what I will be able to serve until I return from the store.  I have an idea of what I want to serve, but it will depend on what I can buy.  I’ll tell you tomorrow. Parking may be an issue.  Ted will vacate our parking slot and there is one unassigned in our lot, so two cars can park here. The ladies are coming in three cars, so someone will have to park at the university and walk over.  I have enough chairs for everyone to sit, but our table is a two person table, so the food will go on the table and plates will have to go on their laps. A Japanese meal usually means a lot of little plates and bowls, but since this will be an American salad lunch, we will use the big plates. One big plate will be easier to handle.  Whatever happens, I’ll just tell them this is the American way.

  1. All the best for the luncheon party. I'm with you on one plate since mostly (in my experience) Japanese guests don't offer to help clean up.
