so a version of spring seems to have arrived in thessaloniki. enough warm weather and sunshine to get some of my spring cleaning done and at least my windows and doors washed and shining:) love to look out of clean windows -- the kind that seem like there is no glass. our trees are all blooming and the leaves and green that surrounds our balcony is inspiring. i feel like i live in a giant treehouse!! every window and door is just a frame for the beauty of nature.
my mother's day was lovely:) my daughter arranged with my husband to deliver a beautiful bouquet of fresh cut flowers all in pink and white and that would have been enough but she also sent a starbucks giftcard, and a box of chocolates. oooouuuuu . . . aaahhhhh. i was invited to go on a short excursion with some good friends to a lake about 1 1/2 hours outside of thessaloniki and we spent the day having a barbeque as well as taking a drive around the lake and a coffee before returning to the city. just a great time!! it was good to get out of the studio and out of the city.
i have cut alot of kits for the nursing home lap quilts (the whole quilt cut out and put into ziploc bags). that way the girls can take a kit home with them each week and if everyone gets their kit done in theory we can make about 5 lap quilts a week. our goal is to make 50 lap quilts before i leave for the states in august. i think we can do it!!
