The Sew Incredibles group surprised me tonight with dinner at the Relish in Roswell and a pretty birthday cake baked by June Hoffman, and a card and a gift! Thank you everyone for celebrating my 50...uh...we'll keep it at 50th birthday! Yes, the cake was sweet! What a great group of nice people! Makes getting older nicer.
I also did a quick demonstration of silk dye painting and let the group loose on a silk scarf. Wow! The scarf turned out absolutely wonderful, and after I steam and wash it, we're thinking of auctioning it at Common Threads -- well, unless I "accidentally" lose it, :)

At Show N Tell, Sandie gave us a mini fashion show (she had so many outfits she made!!!), Helen Mirren -- oops! I mean Martha, made the new Shapes skirt out of batik and the Mimosa Top (see photo left), Barbara Moss made the cutest pair of plaid capris lined in lime green, Sue Eisen showed us her quilt that makes one feel happy, and I can't remember the rest, so someone let me know what they were.
We're supposed to get instructions from Barbara on how to make this nifty tote bag that folds and zips into it's own little pouch that's attached to the tote bag front as a pocket!
