My sister-in-law, me, and my sister, thirty-two swift years ago...we were in a most compromised state of mind for 10:00 a.m., but this was the 1970's after all.
We have straightened right up since then...but we still have a great, great time together.
As the children came and various dramas ensued (especially with girl children), we three moms had to occasionally band together and make very unpopular stands against the Infidels...hence our name, the (occaisionallyEvil) Fifis. We wear it with pride, though the children have long since straightened up as well.
We three are getting together this week...along with the Petitite Fifi, my sister's five year old daughter. So I will be gone from home from this Wednesday through Monday morning. My sis is an owner in a private resort called Warner Springs Ranch, an hour and a half from San Diego, where the hot pool awaits us! But they have WiFi in the lodge so I won't be cut off from you all...so glad about that. Three days there...
(And just so this post is slightly textile related) part of my trip to San Diego will include attending the opening of the Visions Art Quilt Gallery in San Diego on Saturday night. The prestigious Visions show finally has a home of its own...and to open their new gallery they are having a retrospective show of work by my Point Bonita friend, Miriam Nathan-Roberts It is a huge and well-deserved honor for Miriam, and I want to be there to add my accolades. The Fifis will attend. I will take as many pictures as I am allowed, to share with you...Miriam's quilts are in a class by themselves, and the opening will be jammed with all the artily-dressed middle-aged people you could hope to see. I expect Miriam to be switched on to Electric Mode, for sure!
More anon....til then, Happy Stitching You All!
