Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

September knitting

Pear upside down cake with ginger  went over very well.  Nasturtiums, being edible, made perfect decorations.  Gingersnaps, oatmeal/cranberry cookies, brownie bites,  and blackberries in cookie bowls with a crumble of blue cheese, and tea-dyed deviled eggs. We ate ourselves to satiety.

After desperately seeking blackberries, on line and in person, I made it to Justy's Produce in Milwaukie and bought a flat of the little gems.  Thank you, thank you, Justy's Produce!!
I used my flower-vase napkin rings.  Don't those nasturtiums pop against the purple napkin?

Tomatoes(on the right) from our backyard plot.  We started the season with three tomato cages, but the plants have overpowered them entirely.If the pumpkins hadn't dived out the side of the planter and made a run for it, they would have fallen victim to the attack of the killer tomatoes!  Oh, but those yellow cherry tomatoes are SWEET!
Here's the blackberries in the cookie bowl.  Every bowl was consumed completely.  Some people were picking the candied walnuts out of the serving bowls.  Next time, more candied walnuts!

Janette, notice the lovely cup?  Thanks again!  LOVE it!
Here we are in quick overview, toward the end of the festivities.  I was so busy getting things pulled together that it wasn't until DH returned at 12 that I realized I had forgotten to put on makeup or shoes.  I did the whole party in my house-slippers.

As always, a joyous, nurturing, celebratory time.  Thank you, thank you, my dear guests, for making this such a treat for me!  I hope you all got enough to eat.

    Well...I drooled all over the keyboard, but I wanted to say that it all looks lovely! I think you might have started a new party trend with your slippers!

    What lovely, festive luncheons you all have! This one was so colorful (and yes, the flowers really look gorgeous with the purple) and the food! I see lots of Walkies in someone's future.

    You are the hostess with the mostess, and that is a fact, even with slippers! I know you would have looked a million dollars. One question, did your guests notice your slippers? I think not.
    Roxie, you certainly know how to spoil your knitting friends.
    I did notice the cup and I do love it and so pleased you do too.
    Oh how I wished I lived closer ... sigh.
    Glad you had a fabulous day. xx

    Delightfully classy and homey at the same time. You pull off the most wonderful gatherings. I wanted to crawl right into the last picture to see what everyone was making.
