I'm back from the first COF New England Luncheon with gals from this board.
We weren't high in number, but we had a great time at Cracker Barrel.
We had a Yankee Swap, a Prize drawing of FQs and a Show'nTell time. Then we went to Marden's to shop for fabric with a 10% discount KC1930 managed.
Here's a few pic:

Stillsuzz never showed up. We waited an hour before ordering, but since she never gave KC her phone number, we couldn't call her to see why she wasn't there. I hope she's OK.
I even took a photo of me which is a bit contorted. You know how it is when you try to take your own picture. But it wouldn't be any more beautiful anyway, because I'm not.
What you see is what you get.
KC brought a little gift for everyone. It was 2 little notebooks, a ballpoint pen (missing, I think I dropped mine in Cracker Barrel), and a handmade stiletto, which I adore. I remember that info being on our main board to make them.
In the Yankee Swap I got an oval Yo-yo maker. I love it. I think I'll be using it soon. Til now I wasn't really interested in yo-yos but this one is unique. I also love the FQ in which the gift was wrapped.This message has been edited. Last edited by: quiltbea,
Thanks Quiltbea for the pic's and update...glad everyone had such a great time.I adore the two fabrics on the right,that yellow and that green are yummy.
It was great to "see" you gals again! Sounds like you had a fun time.
It must be fun to actually meet people from the board. Putting a face with a name is always special. And, as for your pic Quiltbea, I personally think you are lovely!! Inside AND out! Glad you all had fun!!
Thanks for sharing the pics. Sounds like a special day. What fun.
Oh, I'm so glad you guys had a great day!!
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Quiltbea, I cannot take the credit--MuggoMuggo's idea.
Yes, it was nice to sit and chat. Mom always hears me taking about the ladies on the boards and their many projects and it was nice for her to only meet a few of them but to also to see why I love the boards and spend so much time on my computer! Hugs to all!
Oh, I also posted a few pictures on the other post if you are interested in taking a peek!
Hey, I know those ladies!! Wish I could have joined you folks and quiltbea, I love those fabrics. That runner is so much fun and elegant to make. What are TR gifts?
I think TR = table runner, but I've been known to be wrong at times.
Looks as if you guys had a great time. Almost made me wish I was up North. So glad you all had fun. These mini local gatherings seem so practical and doable.
Thanks for sharing your fun.
Yes, Quiltbea is making the Friday PJ party pattern. The rose and black fabric is really nice!
I'm so glad you all had a great time - wish I had been able to be there. Maybe next year!!
Sorry Pinecone.....I just assume all quilters know that TR is tablerunner and WH is wallhanging. I'll be making some tablerunners as gifts for some of my relatives. But you know what they say about 'assume.'
Maybe next time you can join us? The more the merrier.This message has been edited. Last edited by: quiltbea,
I recognize some of you ladies! The benefits of having gone to COF in Branson.
LOVE the stripes!!!!!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Quiltbee, just had a doh moment. Of course TR is a table runner. *sigh* I started a few a couple of years ago with good intentions. Finished one but now I have caught up on some.
Sherry, I know them from COF in Manchester too.
Oh Quiltbea-silly woman!!! You are beautiful!
Thank you for sharing the pictures. I love seeing pics of people from the board. What nice gift you got too. Wish I had something around here.
KC always has something up that sleeve of hers! And it's all fun!!
