Monday, September 14 - - Today we celebrated at Heidi's house for our 5th birthday as
The day was complete with birthday gifts for party girls, birthday food (mini pizzas and mini cupcakes) and party goody bags. Also in attendance were fabulous displays of talent and creativity.

See for yourself . . .

The ever smiling and zippy Kim whipped up
this gorgeous log cabin quilt.

All in one month. She's amazing!


Lovely Elaine has inspired us all to do something
(And she always has so much to inspire us with!)


Ah, ha! Secret "s
how and tells" Debbie B. has been hiding.
And isn't this one worth the wait? We all love it!
Here's one from her last Sisters' Retreat. All done, already!


Marae completed the top for this big beautiful camp quilt.
It's all warm and cozy and lovable, just like she is.


Cheery, delightful, and refreshing.
Yup, that's
Debbie J. and her quilt. Perfect!


Just a few more blocks to go . . .
and then
Heidi will know how to applique, we hope!


Equally busy and talented
Michelle, Becky, Carol and Marene somehow missed out on the photo ops but were all participants in the celebrations.
And hope to see you next month Valerie and Andie!


Pizzas and cupcakes--looks like party food!
