The JSS August Bee Day was held at Pam’s house – no, not her Alaska house (wouldn’t that have been fun!), but her Texas house – which is now occupied by our hostess with the most-est – Dede and co-hosted by Patti. Thanks to all!
We were greeted by Dede and the two most adorable kittens ever – Angel and Demon. Angel was pretty shy, but not Demon. He decided that Sally would be petting him, not stitching for most of the day:
So as Nancy and Judy stitch away in the background, Sally played with Demon (that sounds kind of scary, huh?). Demon eventually found a place in her bag:
As always, show and tell was awesome! These ladies are so talented! LaNelle started us off with her Judy Niemeyer masterpiece:
This is so incredibly beautiful!
Barb shared some of her new Inklingo blocks. Barb has already blogged about this new project – so be sure to check our her Just Sayin’ Sew blog. But here’s a few pics from our bee show and tell:
I thought the back was cool too:
And here’s Barb showing another beauty:
I can’t wait to see the whole quilt! Well, wait, these are hand pieced – I’d better not hold my breath! 😉
Cindy has a wool Christmas project she’s working on:
I love working with wool applique! It feels so good, looks fabulous and goes quickly!
Suz has this pretty hand dyed quilt almost all ready for the quilt show – a little binding to go:
Suz also shared this quilt – I think she’s calling it Butterflies in My Irish Coffee:
Irish Chain with coffee cups and, yes, there are butterflies:
Patti’s been making Eye Spy quilts:
And she’s found the perfect fabric for the back!
How fun is that!?!
Peggy’s show and tell was a sling and a happy smile:
We are all glad to know that she’s well on the road to recovery!
Judy has been very productive and brought some gorgeous quilts to show. How about this pretty star quilt:
And this awesome Cowgirl Cinema quilt:
This is simply stunning! How about a cowgirl closeup:
And finally, Judy has this super cute Under the Deep Blue Sea Quilt (I just made up that name, I really don’t know what she’s calling it 🙂 ).
I couldn’t resist the purple octopus with the pink ric-rac tentacles:
Sally has been working on her P3 Forever Blooming Block of the Month:
Aren’t they all just simply gorgeous? And… Sally has her Lone Star Christmas quilt ready for the show:
I’ve mentioned the quilt show several times – that is the Trinity Valley Quilters’ Guild show and it will be held September 19th and 20th at the Amon Carter Exhibit Hall in the Will Rogers Complex in Fort Worth, Texas. If you live anywhere in North Texas, you should hop in the car and come to the show – it will be great!!!
Bee day continued with a super fun Facetime session with Pam up in Alaska! We got a tour of the house and the beautiful view out her door! That was followed by more stitching, more eating, more playing with the kitties and lots of love and laughter. I love Bee Day!
