Today was a trip to Reid State Park, looking for a photo location that has a French Lieutenant's Woman feel to it.
I think I've found it.
A barefoot walk on the beach was just the right thing to get my appetite up.

The past year has been full of crochet goodness and crochet challenges and lots of new friends (we just passed the 5400 mark)on the facebook page and many new subscribers who tell us how they love us. We've managed to produce 185 patterns- although our patterns do in fact sometimes include more than one project. A recent example is Bonnie Barker's wraps- It's a Wrap! is counted as only one in spite of there being two different patterns included. (Thanks to Hannah Crabtree and Arielle Patty modelling them)
And then there's my sister! Back when I was a magazine editor, she used to ask me- "why don't you show a picture of the edging? I want to see the edging!" Well, you know how big sisters are! The problem was always how much space and how much time I was allocated to any one given project.
Well, guess who's boss NOW!
There's a great pleasure in keeping my sister happy!
Seriously, a digital only format gives us space to do whatever we damn please!
Meanwhile, it's in the 80s here in Phippsburg, and I'm setting up a Christmas tree to shoot some Christmas goodies. Tree or poinsettias? Or both?
(I've been asked to point out that the last 2 photos are NOT the kinds of photos we use, but rather a candid camera, Michele-is-sitting-on-the-other-couch-and-needs-to-finish-this-blog kind of photo. NOT a Don Patty photo)

I started out to go to the beach......
Don braved the bugs and didn't leave until the ranger dude on the ATV asked him, but not the surfers or other tourists, to leave. "Park closes at sundown!" Apparently only for Buckeyes.....

A simple meal, so easy and quick to make, of mainly Maine products. Yum!

I was able to maintain the semblance of being alive after the show because we were all still wired from it.
Visiting with Susanna, and Arielle, and Kathryn made me forget my tiredness, but today, with everybody gone but Don and Mika and me, I'm setting on the couch after market wondering what hit me. The good news is that I was very much struck by walking down a hallway in the Radisson that I had walked down 2 years ago WITH MY WALKER, and although my feet hurt (didn't everybody's?!) I was really not uncomfortable moving along on my own steam.
I can't say that it was a really good show for mainly crochet or me, except to show me how far I have come in terms of what we as a group are doing and what standards we have that others don't. The next year will not be spent getting ready for someone else's show, but in figuring out how I can pull off one of my own.

That's all for today, folks! We got Kathryn to the airport safe and sound, I have a depressed little dog who misses her, and a major need for another nap! More tomorrow.....
