I had a great time preparing for the first meeting of small art quilt group: Frayed Edges. Kate brought ginger scones to have for morning munchies. I made a pot of coffee and set out the various fixin's -- including our nice china. I mean, gosh, we hardly ever use it, so this seemed like the perfect time. Claire saw it all set out before she went to school and asked if I was having a tea party. As a matter of fact... I am having a tea party!!
I planned Hot Ginger Chicken Salad over Puff Pastry with a light salad with red pepper strips and feta for lunch. I was delish and everyone cleaned their plates. Which meant we were permitted to have cookies brought by Sarah: pumpkin spice cookies, chocolate/nut/chip and chocolate/pecan/toffee. Yes, three choices!
I also had a fun time setting the table. I made a simple centerpiece with jars and scraps of blue and white fabric, which somewhat coordinates with the china. And the placemats were made by my great grandmother, Mabel. She was a true multi-media artist and an inspiration. Those placemats must be nearly 100 years old.
More about the actual get-together soon.
