Yesterday, I felt I went around the world. I had attended a festive museum group reunion down by the ocean and afterwards gathered arts and crafts to play some more. It is rewarding to stay connected with committed people and art and to create.

After the reunion I went into Hingham to find a needlepoint cow that I had seen at The Monday Club. Although I can paint needlepoint canvases, the proprietor was so helpful teaching me new stitches that I purchased her goods for a new project.
On my way to the car I stopped in at the yarn store, a shop that imports Peruvian wools and the cheese shop for sarsaparilla and a panini, strengthifying should the predicted thunderstorms start. Synergistically, I saw in a window, art by children, model clay figures, looking at paintings, something the reunion group specializes in.
I had to go by the fabric store to pick up a novelty fabric for a Father's Day portrait (cars) and found two 18" bendable stuffed muslin dolls with wire armature for the grandchildren to think about to fashion to their own creations. They have their American Girls Dolls. I wonder what they can create the same size.
The heavens held their downpour until I hit my driveway!
