Co-Workers in the park + Abuelitas Modernas....

Imagine 50 to 80 degrees, gray and foggy to holy-hell-the-sun-is-out, from working alone everyday inside to creative ladies picnicking in the park.  A few local full time crafty ladies and I met up to Co-Work yesterday.  It was a bit of a debacle at first. We had to move our little picnic out of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, which is a clusterfuck on free Tuesday!  But after we finally settled into a  shady, cherry blossom tree covered area I got some work done. The hoards of screaming kids kept me from feeling the afternoon sleepies too... 

Our little outing reminded me of this group of stitchers. Completely smitten with these ladies, who call themselves the Abuelitas Modernas, or Modern Grandmas.       

Stitching with friends on a roof top in some foreign land.... i want to go there.  Would love to be in their circle of stitchers!! Their roof top scene was far more idyllic than ours was, but I so enjoyed the amazing company!!....    

working in the park, I gotta say, however crazy, was really nice!  AND.... it was Virginia's Birthday - Happy, Happy Day (again)!!
