Fun in Florida

We had a wonderful visit all week with old friends in the Pensacola, Florida area where we lived for 7 years. It was a fine week and we got our "water fix" for the Spring. Ann & Greg were our first friends in the area, and they were our hosts this week. They have a beautiful bay-front home near Pensacola and it was great to see them. Here's the sunrise view...

...and the sunset view.

Another reason for the visit was that I was teaching a hand-dyed fabric class to the ladies in my former Pensacola area bees, the Killer Bees and the Fringe. Eileen G. graciously offered her barn studio and yard as our work area (and her expertise in culinary arts for lunch), so we all gathered at her Lillian, AL home for a day of creating, talking, eating, talking, and artful messy fun.

We had work stations indoors and outdoors. This was the indoor dye table.

And here's the outdoor area...

We had 6 ladies indoors and 8 outdoors (if I counted right). We were all dye stained and exhausted by the afternoon, but I think it's safe to say that fun was had by all.

Ann, Pat, Dorothy, Wynnell, Mary Elma, Lori we missed having you there. I love you all, ladies!
