A Quilters Lunch

Thank you, Karleen, for inviting me to lunch today! It was fun to take a break from my daily routine to come visit you and your friend, Julie. The shared lunch worked together to create a delicious menu of Tasha Tudor bread with sandwich fillings, fruit salad, ants-on-a-log celery sticks, and lemonade.

[For anyone interested, the recipes for my contribution (olive and walnut spread; herbed butter) can be found
here. The recipe for the Tasha Tutor bread can be found in the Tasha Tudor Cookbook. It was exceptional!]

What beautiful projects you and Julie were working on! I felt a little lost without my sewing machine too, but I enjoyed visiting while you sewed. And seeing all the fun projects you two are working on was truly an inspiration!

Of course I enjoyed sharing time with Chalupa and Lucy as well. Canine friends are always special. The treat of the day was to be able to look out your back patio door to see a tug boat and barge pass by so closely! Unfortunately, it looks far away in the picture, but it seemed to be so close as it motored on by. And what a pretty garden --- not a weed in sight!

Thank you for sharing your day with me! It was fun!


  1. That looks like a perfect day. A beautiful lunch, quilting, visiting, and animal friends to play with. The tug boat was fun to see too. I didn't realize you all were so close to the river.

  2. The lunch looks wonderful, the quilts are gorgeous and the view breathtaking. Thanks for sharing them with us. What was the bread? It looks scrumptious. Is there a recipe somewhere? ~Adrienne~

  3. I love your photos, they make everything look so beautiful. I love quilts.

  4. Linda, I am so happy to meet you! I've added your blog to my blogroll. How special that Clarice is your daughter. I am a huge fan of Storybook Woods!

  5. Yes, Clarice is special and she has done a great job with her blog.
