Surprise!!

What a fun party for Dolores. She was completely surprised, judging by the number of f-bombs when we walked in. Here are some action shots...











Thanks to Joe and Veronica for setting this up and letting us celebrate our Dolores - a truly special person! Peace....

Happy Friday!

Ladies - hope you had a nice week.  I wanted to show you a quilt top I finished this week - I started it last week at the Firehouse. It's made with one jelly roll and is a nice finished size. Have a great weekend!! Peace....

Firehouse sewing...

We had a very nice time on Thursday at Brookline. Cathy, Leigh Anne, Dolores and I got a lot accomplished. And Maureen stopped by for a long chat - so nice! Dolores was trimming lots and lots of string quilt blocks. She also helped Leigh Anne start an awesome Halloween string quilt. Can't wait to see that one finished - the colors are spectacular! Here are some show & tell pictures:

Cathy made this cute baby quilt - she appliqu├ęd some adorable little cars and hearts...


A scrap-busting hexagon quilt - great colors!


I made a quilt for a woman out of her mother's clothing - this is the pieced back. the flowers are a pocket on the housecoat I used.


This is the front.


I put this top together at the firehouse - a great, easy quilt using a layer cake....'Easy Bricks' on Moda Bake Shop.


Such a nice time! Thanks to Leigh Anne for setting it up - and to Gerry for turning on the A/C.  See you all soon....don't forget the 'Sew and not swim' at Maureen's on Sunday, August 17th at 10:00 AM.    Peace.

Bee doings.....

Howdy - a very nice bee at Cathy's last night! So cool and pleasant sitting in her family room. We missed those who weren't there. It was nice to catch up. We got the details from Sean and Lacey's wedding - the handmade invitations were awesome! Peggy has been so busy since school ended. She and Leigh Anne were both at Knoebel's last week - and had a great time. We decided on a few items....next Thursday, July 10th, we're going to sew at Brookline Fire house - at 3:30. We figured we would order pizza for dinner. If you want to bring snackies - and your favorite beverage, please do.  The 'Sew and not Swim' will be at Maureen's on Sunday, August 17th at 10. As that is two days after our Dolores' birthday - do we want to start later and just go to the Lamb from there for dinner? Just a thought....let me know....or we can make it another date. Lots of vacations coming up for the mamas. We had some nice show & tell last night too.....

Cathy made this for a friend of her Mom's.The colors are so pretty - and the flannel back feels great.


Cathy made another alphabet top - for a future baby quilt. So cute!


Lois made this beauty for a relative.


I got this pattern from Shiny Happy World....easy to make. His name is Milo!


I crocheted a second rug - wanted to try a rectangular one. I like it....went fairly quickly.


That's the roundup.....hope you're all staying cool on this sweltering day. Hope to see you next week at the Firehouse. Peace.....
