Bee time.....

Just realized that I forgot to share show&tell pictures! We had nice time...thanks to Maureen for hosting. Myself, Cathy, Leigh Anne, Lois and Dolores - we chatted and caught up on things. One change - the 'Sew and not-swim day' is moved to Sunday, August 30th. Hope you can come. On to the pictures....

This is a whale that Kelly made - his name is Wallace. She hand-stitched him.

I made this from a tea towel I bought in Cape May - I put borders on it and am hand-quilting around the little pictures.

Isn't this cute...Cathy bought this elephant fabric up at Burkholder's last week - and made this adorable baby quilt for Kerry's friend.

This backing was on sale at Burkholder's - a great deal and so cute!

Cathy's alphabet quilt - awesome!

I made this wheelchair bag on Saturday afternoon for one of Kelly's Sunrise buddies.

Hope you are all staying cool! See you down the road.....peace.

Mid-June already?

Where is the time going? A nice bee tonight - thanks to Cathy for hosting us. Consuelo, Dolores, Cathy and myself. We talked about everyone who wasn't there - in a good way!! I caught everyone up on Pam' latest news. We wondered how George an Lois are doing up in the frozen north! Consuelo is days away from the all-consuming wedding - come on next Sunday!! Joe Byrnes is doing well with his new job. We talked about charity quilts - this summer's 'Sew and Not Swim' is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August 29th. We want to work on charity quilts.....get those scraps out! On to the show & tell:
Dolores is making this beautiful king-sized quilt for her sister - who wanted a Blue quilt - the fabric is awesome!! It's from Hawthorn Threads.

She's going to measure it on the bed this weekend - and determine borders - it really is stunning!

This is a little bowl I made out of a hexagon block...

I'd found this fabric and pattern through Hawthorn threads also...little mermaids and sea creatures - the pattern was actually for a large quilt. I made it smaller - and will get at least two quilts from it.

This is the seashore bottle cap fabric. I'm making curtain panels for Monique's trailer - I love this fabric! I can't wait to see pictures.

This is a pillow I made as a raffle prize for the Sean Patrick Cunningham fundraiser. He was a young alum of SJU who passed away in an accident.

Cathy made this happy string quilt as a charity quilt - the back is super soft and pretty too!

That's it for now, ladies. School's almost out! Stay cool....I'm working on compiling a list of everyone's favorite fabric websites, weekly emails, who do you like on Facebook...more to come on that! Peace
