Quilt Guild Annual Meeting

We had a hat party for our quilt guild meeting today. It was Mary Lee's last official day as our president, then someone else will take over.
She was given a quilt made by the group, & pieced together & quilted by Jackie Carley, who is presenting it here. I loved the black & white check she used to put it together. It's the lattice strips.
Lynn looked cute in her Kuspuk & her hat. & when she took her hat off to show us her new growth of hair, we thought she looked like a Kewpie Doll! She had chemo for breast cancer recently.
On the road home I stopped to snap a picture of the mountains with the clouds looking a little brooding. I liked the shadows & colors.
On the same road is my friend Sue's house, where she has been selling specialty threads & yarns for the last few years, but has decided to stop her business, so she getting rid of inventory.
Her garden is always beautiful.
I decided it was my duty as a friend to help, so I bought 2 bags of stuff!

Hi Deb,
Thanks for visiting my blog. The restaurant in Shipshewana is called "The Blue Gate"~ we love to go there.
I used to work for Cole's Bakery (the company was based in Muskegon but I was a vendor in Kalamazoo), but haven't been there for quite a few years.

Nice threads - but a better view "on the way home."

AK is high on my list of places to visit. (I want to cruise the inner passage.)

Your guild meeting sounds like fun. That scenery shot is just awesome. You should enlarge that and hang it up. Or make a quilt from the design. Buying quilty stuff is always fun too. Sounds like a great day overall.

That's a great quilt. I love the colors! What fun threads! I'm sure you'll miss her store when it's all gone.
