What a pleasure it’s been to spend a couple of days “near Philadelphia” with Nancy, her hubby Joe, and also to feel the love of her fur coated family members!
Nancy’s church ((let’s see if I can get this right, and it will probably be wrong!)) is sponsoring a mission trip to go help those in need in New Orleans. Yes – there is still great need there!
And she thought that funds raised during a quilting workshop could greatly benefit the mission fund --- and she was RIGHT!
And boy howdy, did they go all out! If you want to read it straight from the organizer’s mouth, you can check Nancy’s post HERE!
We were even so spoiled as to have this event specially catered…for both BREAKFAST and LUNCH! for 30 of us! And yes…of course…if there is food, and me near food, any pictures of me will be found putting said food in my mouth….as witnessed in Nancy’s blog above!
We did a crumbs workshop, and everyone brought piles of scraps, traded pieces, looked for the perfect colors, made suggestions to each other, played outside their own boxes to test the water a bit, and let loose!
This is a small segment of the work that was accomplished during this fun filled day, and I am so happy they invited me to be a part of it! Several of the ladies left with Tonya’s Word Play Quilts book in tow, ready and raring to go on their own projects with specific words and phrases in mind! It was a veritable creative out pouring!
This is Bodacious. He is very talkative and loves to be loved on, but will tell you in no uncertain terms when he has had enough! Look at that face! Isn’t he a sweetie?
THIS, my friends, is Blackberry! And just LOOK at that face! Those eyes! That soft velvet mouth and cute hanging lips! One look at this guy and I was in puppy love for sure!
Trips to visit Nancy, NP come around every couple years it seems, and it is always good to touch base with real life friends! I hope it won't be too long until we can spend some girlfriend time NP again!
