Did you all have a good weekend? We got lots of sorely needed rain — yipee! Our rain came from the leftovers of Hurricane Ike and it was gray and perfect for a day inside sewing with the blogless quilty peeps.
Jewels was our hostess and she went all out. She had her house all decorated for fall and I had to take a picture of her adorable china closet. How cute are these dishes? They look like they just walked off of the Martha Stewart set!
Jewels greeted us each with a fantastic Halloween gifty bag. She had them all tied so pretty with a little Halloween ornament — I hated to open mine up. But I had to, ’cause just look at all the wonderful goodies. (I LOVE candy corn season!) Look at the Halloween fabrics — I love them!!!
We had enough food for the four of us AND all of you, and I’m not kidding. By my count (and I’m sure I’ve forgotten something) we had two appetizers (fresh veggie dip and pumpkin cracker dip), two soups (Pumpkin and Maritatta — YUMMY for both!), 5 (yes FIVE) salads (Bruschetta, Broccoli, Apple Taffy, Seven Layer, and Hot Chicken), and umpteen desserts (Martha’s S’More’s Cupcakes (YUM and they looked just like Martha’s!), Apple Cake, Iced Sugar Cookies, Karen’s Awesome White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies, and HolyCrapTheseAreAmazing Cookies (Holy Crap, the other stuff was more amazing!)) Oh, and a wonderful variety of drinks which included hot apple cider — perfect for our stormy weather. Ok, so we got carried away. But it was all fantastic, and I don’t know about the other girls but TheManoftheHouse and I had leftovers all weekend.
In between all the eating, we sewed. Jewels worked on her fantastic Grandmother’s Flower Garden.
Gurney worked on these super-cute embroidered squares for a baby quilt for her granddaughter.
Junie made these adorable pillowcases for her daughter. I wanted to take them home!
And I worked on my little blue wren project which STILL isn’t done. I was hoping to get it done this weekend, but I’m getting slow in my old age.
There were no Princess and the Pea beds or alcholic beverages harmed in the making of our day (like at SOME wild parties), but we did have a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do it again SOON! Thanks for all your hard work and for hosting us Jewels — and Big, Big Smoochies to the best quilty peeps ever!!!
