This and That + a Recipe

Sat was my Applique Society meeting, aka TAS.  I joined this group  a year ago, and I have to say, it's the best group.  I always learn something from one of the members and the skill level in the group is amazing. If you don't have a group in your area, why not start one?  I got a few more grapes sewn on Block #16, I'm almost finished!
I'm still looking for the sunshine. Just when my daisies have started to bloom, the rains came and beat them down. Here are a few I picked for my kitchen table.
I also picked some fresh rhubarb and made a recipe from My Yellow Farmhouse.  OMG, they are fabulous.
I'll take this batch over to my gal pal's for coffee this morning.  Her mom passed away in May after a 6 month battle trying to recover from heart surgery.  The memorial is at her house, so a bunch of us will arrive early to help make sandwiches.  This isn't just anyone, this is my gal pal that I met in Grade 2, back in 1969.  If I wasn't at her house, then she was at mine.  We were inseparable growing up.  Aside from my own family, I've known this family longer than anyone else. It's kind of like loosing my mom all over again. The evolution of life.  But we will all be there to support our friend, that's what we do.   I'm blessed to have such an amazing group of girlfriends, through thick and thin, good and bad, we've stuck together forever. 
Thanks for stopping by today, take time to smell the roses!
Happy Birthday DP

What pretty daisys. They are so frilly. Love the little table top quilt, too. Friends, they are special, aren't they. I will be seeing my BF from kindergarten next week. It's like we have never been apart when we get together. Just like old times.
