Here's Jan working hard preparing Bang Bang Shrimp which we've never had before but will again! Bang Bang Fish is a dish on the menu from Bonefish Grill. Jan found a recipe for it and it was soooooo good!
So here is our hostess. Jan is a beautiful lady, inside and out! And always outdoes herself as a hostess!
Larry is the crab leg chef! These were the best crab legs Bob and I have had in ages!! Larry, besides being a hunk, is also a good cook! A fusser eater but a good cook!
Of course there were drinks...just a few...
And then we ate, and ate, and ate....
and kept eating......
Just a peak at my plate...everything was just delicious.
And fresh strawberry shortcake for dessert!!! I did bring lemon pie soup..that's another story!
The guys chilling after dinner. Bob took a little nap while they were watching basketball. I think this was the latest we've stayed out at night in so long! We didn't get home until after 11:30! Talk about night owls..which we aren't!
We did have such a nice visit with everyone. A huge THANK YOU, Jan and Larry! And thanks, John for driving! Marilyn and I just sat in the back seat groaning about how much we ate!
So, here's my background piece I quilted for my April BJP. Can you guess what it's going to be??? Actually, you need to turn the piece so it's portrait 'wise'. I forgot to do that before I uploaded it. I'm going to try a different approach to my work this month. I'd like to bead my piece then attach to my background. I see where some beaders use felt and I'm not sure what others use. I need to research to see what would work best to bead on.
I keep forgetting to put a pix of my woven pouch I made from our last weaver's meeting! So here it is! I think it's a clever technique and would be perfect for Amber and even Nick to do this summer.
Another beautiful day today. I actually sat outside yesterday afternoon in the sun and read (yep, War & Peace is almost finished!) but I only got sun burn on my knee caps! go figure! I'm now doing the hand stitching on my KISS project, which is due the end of April so I have something to do while I sit out. I almost started a different KISS project because I wasn't happy with some of the machine stitching design I did so I ripped it all out! I'll show before and after pics. Now I'm happy with it and I think the hand stitching will work out well. So off to get my day moving!
