After Pat retired, she decided to travel. Pat was at Julia Child's 80th and 90th birthday parties and recently attended a big event in NYC for Jacques Pepin. She's been to so many interesting places. Paris, Greece, the European River Cruise last year -- now, 2015 -- PRINCETON, IOWA!!
When my sisters came to Sew Expo in 2012 -- Pat hosted us in Olympia for a wonderful day of adventures...
|What is the name of this place? It's HUGE...a gigantic warehouse with every kind of bead or bauble or finding ever invented. I am STILL using those tortoise shell buttons...|
|We visited some of Pat's friends who live on the water. (a big thrill for us Iowa girls)|
|We had so much fun...|
|There were sew-and-tells...her friend Dana wore this great t-shirt scarf...|
|When you're with Pat -- there will ALWAYS be delicious food...|
|At a waterfront restaurant...(I am eating tuna. Another thrill for an Iowa girl)|
|Pat is a docent at the State Capitol...|
|I am telling you -- she took us ALL OVER her beautiful city AND the surrounding area. This woman was born to be a tour guide...|
So I am delighted to be able to return the favor! Lillian and I prepared the guest room the other day -- and I have a few spectacular activities planned (corn growing)...
|This is me, eating something delicious Pat cooked...|
