Hot Times

To celebrate the weekend, we all went out to dinner.

The restaurant made up a special menu just for us.

I guess it's okay that they left out an "e" in Bearly, as long as they didn't put it betweenm the r and the l! I guess the "t" went into the iced tea we were all drinking...

I can vouch for the excellence of the sausage lasagna.

Anne and Louise, testing out the fresh hot bread.

Sandy, taking pictures of everyone. I love to take pictures of people who are taking pictures.
I know, it's a sickness!
My fabrics, at least some of them. They are part of a new Bali Pop line, which is 40 precut 2.5"strips. We had a choice of 6 colorways.
Mine is Strawberry Fields. In this photo you can't see the luscious reds, but you'll get to see them later when I sew this up more.

The yellow is cheddar and sun Bali batiks. They are the "star" points.
Leah, Sandy, and Anne hard at work.
This is a pretty good view of the classroom.
Marion is wearing her hair bright purple these days. Yes, she belongs to the Red Hat Society.

No, I do not plan on joining her in the interesting hair color!

Some of the quilts on display at the shop.
There are more shop pictures on my Flickr page!

This is the Mystery Project. The pattern is called Cosmic Stars, and this particular quilt is done in the Mulberry colorway.
I'm not too crazy about the angle at which I took this picture, nor about the way the flash washes out the colors. I also have a bandaid on my index finger, which is doing creative things to my typing and is the reason I'm not going to go into a lot of detail here.

Perhaps tomorrow. We'll have show n' tell in the morning,. and hopefully I will be able to get pics of all the colorways for you. You know, so you can go to your favorite quilt shop and pester them to order a kit or two for you!

Hmmm ... seven straight posts with "Hot" in the title? ;-)

This post turned me pure green with envy. So many of my favorite people all in one place ... and sewing!!. I just don't make enough time to sew any more. I know that has a lot to do with having "knitting peeps" but no "quilting peeps." Ah well. Thank god for my mini-group wanting to keep me around!

Have a wonderful time and please tell everyone I'm thinking of them!
