Women and Wine

Ilke welcomed everyone to Paradise Hills Resort and Winery for a continuation of their monthly Wine and Women series. 

Ilke, Leslie, Amy

Leslie and Amy

She then turned the program part over to Angie Hernden, artist/owner of Mountain Hope Pottery

Angie the pottery teacher

Amy and I both took a turn at the wheel.  Whew!  It was hard work.  I have a new respect for what it takes to work the pedal, careful to control the speed of the turning wheel, all while working the clay…with correct positioning and pressure of bare hands…and just the right amount of water:

Amy lil potter

Sandy the potter

Angie was a fabulous instructor, and will finish up our pieces (thank goodness), and call us when they are ready for pick up.  I know she will make us look good…and I will post photos of our beautiful creations.

The patio was a perfect place to sit, sip, munch, laugh, relax, and learn.

Cathy (upper L), Janet, me, Maureen, Leslie, Amy, Joan, Sharon

First Wednesday of each month.

Who wants to join us next month?  Girls only!

And there was wine. It doesn't get any better than that.

Can't wait to see what she made for you. Bwahahahahahaha.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

Proving once again that nothing is ever as easy as it seems. Thank goodness there was wine and fine friends at the finish line. And someone to finish things up. ;)

I am pleased that it's Friday. My weekdays have been busier than the norm, certainly busier than I like, and I need the weekend to recharge. And then there are those pesky chores. bugger. big hugs xoxo
