May Bee Day – A Day at the Lake House

Bee Day in May was at Karen’s lake house! Thank you Karen and hubby Jim!  It was a wonderful, beautiful day after many stormy, rainy days and nights.

When I arrived everyone was gathered around the table chowing down Cinnamon Cream Cheese Squares for breakfast. What would bee day be without cream cheese for breakfast!

Karen,-Sue-and-PeggyAnd the lake was perfect!

Lake-before-risingAfter breakfast … boat ride!  Here are some of us on the boat

On-the-boatAnd here are some not on the boat:

Not-on-the-boatNotice the dry dock they are standing on.  As we cruised around Lake Kiowa, the water started rising from the heavy rains the night before.  Notice the crane and the furniture are in the water at a nearby dock.

I started it off with this quilt top made from four patches exchanged with friends – lets call it “With a Little Help from My Friends:”
