Stepping into Spring

I stole that title from Kathleen, who hosted the most wonderful mid-day party today.  We made stepping stones.  Kat had quikcrete, concrete pavers, and everyone brought all kinds of yummy stuff to create beautiful stepping stones.  Some of my favorite things were ceramic pieces that Kat's mom, Pat, brought--just so many lovely things to play with.  Thanks, Pat!  Edmo brought some really cool stuff, too, including some fabulous ceramic angel heads.  Wish I'd had time to incorporate more of the great things everyone contributed.

It was a great spring day with fine friends,  delicious food, and time well-spent making!  It doesn't get any better than that.  

Now it's time to finish getting ready for our trip to Big Bend.  We leave tomorrow.  I'm sure I'll be posting about it upon my return.  My love for the Southwest just keeps growing.
