Me and my dear friend John during his wife's memorial last week. Robin died on Sunday the 20th and we will all miss her so. She was a joy to all that knew her and will be sorely missed. Robin was a fiber artist mastering in the art of inigo dying, a nurse and a naturalist. Although I have been friends with John for 40 years I only knew her for the last 15 but she and John were just made for each other. My heart really aches because my friend is without her.

This is a doll bed that my little neighbor Madelyn and I made for her doll. Its made from thick foamcore and scraps of fabric I had laying around. It was a wonderful afternoon that we spent together. Madelyn comes to paint with me sometimes and now several of her little friends want to join in. Looks like a tea party in the making.
