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 Peggy were chatting in the kitchen.
And the lake was perfect!
After breakfast … boat ride! Here are some of us on the boat
And here are some not on the boat:
Notice 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.
When we got back to the Thompson’s dock the water was noticeably higher. The dock was eventually underwater:
While we were boating, the land lovers started eating lunch! We were famished by the time we got back. We had a bunch of scrumptious foods – there were lots and lots of desserts!
A little time for stitching and chatting and laughing and maybe a tear or two. Then Show and Tell!
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:”
Peggy showed us this simply gorgeous applique:
Karen used her block exchange blocks to create this wonderful quilt:
Judy brought this lovely log cabin:
Madelyn had lots and lots of fun blocks to show:
Barb had her finished (yes – finished, completely finished) handkerchief quilt:
Also, Barb and Sally showed their simply stunning Inklingo projects:
Jim had a show and tell of his own – here he is attempting to hide it behind his back:
Here it is! Yard Art!
And here is the Yard Art out in the yard – pretty cool, huh?
So a lovely day at the lake, the most awesome boat ride, lots of delicious food, love, laughter and some pretty amazing quilting going on! That’s a Bee Day for the memory books!
Have a great weekend, y’all!
