I took two rayon georgette blouses that I thought suited her, and a few bottles of fabric paint (because while cute, the blouses were a bit ordinary. And Margot is not.) So we undertook an exercise in fabric painting. The textured old towel we put down as base transferred its bumps to the painted leaves and stems very nicely. Later Margot added flowers to this border.
Working on this, and also knitting and stitching gave us a chance to catch up on family stories and remembrances. I made excellent progress on an art piece (not the wool plaid one). It was a lovely, short visit.
Fall in Ohio is very different from Texas. Leaves were beginning to turn and the air was crisp in the mornings. We drove out to the country to buy apples, something our family did every year while we lived there. I do miss that. I was sorry to leave the apples behind due to limited luggage space.
Got home without incident, and the cat was happy to see me. Oh, and I was able to navigate Margot's steep steps without problems! The new hip is working well.
