So Colleen came in on Monday late afternoon. Her trip to Germany had a change of plans and here she is in hot Arizona I might add. She will be here at least 2 weeks so I set about signing us up for classes and making a few plans as my work schedule allows. Friday I took the day off from work and we played all day. Shopped till we dropped was a very true phrase. Between the heat and all the shopping by the time we met Karen and Teah for dinner I was done just done!!! Good thing Cornish Pasty has ice cold beer!!!! We sat on the patio for dinner and a cool breeze, misters and fans cooled us off. The food as usual was so good. I think I have converted the girls to my favorite place. Karen joined me in a Tangerine Beer so we were happy happy while Teah and Colleen drank their teas :)
A shopping expedition with Colleen is not complete without a stop at Merchant Square . They were having big sales so I really lucked out. Not only did we go once we came back and went through again!!!
Here is my finds and yes Colleen found tons of things as she flew through the store.
Laundry basket for my bathroom soon to be a different color painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paints that I picked up
Saturday I was up early and ready to attend a small home workshop with Carol Wingert. "Betwinchie". It was a great workshop in a small group setting. Colleen as usual kept our table entertained with her tales and antics. She came with all 64 of her squares completed. I know huh. Karen, Teah and I just shook our heads and smiled. I really enjoyed the pace, the small group and the food. OMG Ashley again prepared the best of food including my favorite Mac and Cheese.
