Sea of red & white....

sorry I disappeared there for a while.....but I am back!!
A lot has been going on...we took a little vacation, I tested some bags, hide from the heatwave, enjoyed some some lovely summer days with friends....I have so much to tell you ....

First I want to share pictures of our quilt meeting. We are a group of about 25 women. We meet once a month at someone's house... usually about 8-10 show up to a meeting. I picked June for my meeting month since I figured we could have it outside ...never did I imagine that 20 women would show up !! I borrowed every table & chair my neighbors had!

To make the meeting more fun, I gave it a theme...everyone had to come in "red & white" ...I didn't care if their undies were red & white but something on them had to be red & white ...Polka dots were not a must ! ...even if they are my favorite !

Here's the garden before the "Sea off red & white" arrived!!!
...and then they came.....I was amazed that everyone was in red & white !! !! 

After coffee & cake I put the ladies to work...they had to sew strawberries...

In all the fun I forgot to take pictures of the strawberries together...but here are a few....

......everyone had fun and I even got spoiled with " red & white " hostess gifts ...its amazing but no two polka dot fabrics are the same ! 
Don't you just love the basket !

Just in case your wondering ...I did paint my nails in red & white  polka dots ...what else !! 


P.S: I asked all the ladies if it was OK to post their pictures here and they gave me their OK ! ...no trying to sue me in a year!! LOL
