Thursday I joined Marie for our last Girl time Thursday (for a little while anyway). She will be bringing little Zane into the world soon and I will be having a wedding and going on my honey moon this new month as well. I have so enjoyed our times of talking and Tea. She has been so helpful to me in preparing my center pieces, helping my sister with the shower, and just being a great friend. I am so blessed to have her be a part of my life.
This past Thursday was great too! We talked to Elizabeth on Skype. It has been so long since i've seen her I really enjoyed talking to her and seeing what she was up to. (Elizabeth, your wedding cake turned out beautifully!) . We drank tea. Marie made me chicken and rice soup. It was so good and it really hit the spot after a loooong day of work. Lastly but not least Marie taught me how to crochet. My mother had shown me how to crochet the first string when i was a little girl, but i had never learned how to go back the other way and make something that was worth making. Marie is such a good teacher. She took her time and showed me about 4 different times how to do the same thing. How to hold your work, and she was so encouraging too. She also told me of a few video tutorials on the web that teach different stitching patterns. I took her advise and made my first granny square. I think the pattern has too many holes, but i am very satisfied at how quickly i was able to pick up this new trait under Marie's instruction. Thanks for being a GREAT teacher Marie! Here is peak at my first work. The pics aren't that great, but they'll do.
