Today, we (and by “we” I mean David) cooked at our 15th annual Green Mountain Bonsai’s Members’ Show at Mill Brook Bonsai. The weather, as always, was lovely. It’s been a treat to see the changing displays of these little trees over the years. Eleanor was sincerely a big help setting up, buttering corn, and cleaning up. She earned her tips!
The apron she wore was a Christmas gift that I made out of a vintage bed sheet. The pattern that I used was Simplicity 7856. I used store-bought bias tape and I think the whole thing came together in about an hour. I wished that I had taken my camera out a little more, but my hands were mostly covered in olive oil or busily helping Eleanor.
David’s mother, who initially asked him to cook at this event years ago, stepped down from her position on the bonsai society's board this year. She received a nice recognition from the founder, Sandy Anderson. She was given a lifetime membership as well as tickets to the theater. It was clear that her dedication to the group was truly appreciated by all who were there.
