Payson, Pines and Playing

Marene played hostess for August at her home in Payson. Only seven of us were there, but what a wonderful time we had! I missed pictures on Sunday and Monday so here are just a few shots of fun-ness from Tuesday.

Marae and Kim had to leave early on Tuesday and I did not get shots of their happy circle and pinwheel quilts, but at least you can see their cute faces!
It was a lovely surprise to have Kim back with us.
(Keep your fingers crossed that she will rejoin Quilters from Hale very soon!)

Here's the rundown of activity:

Here is our beautiful hostess with her unbelievable project.
Look closely and be impressed!

Carol has this darling Block of the Month that she started. So, so cute and lots of variety. She has much to think about . . .

This is Debbie B.'s newest project. Don't you absolutely love it??
Here is a service project--finishing a friend's quilt.What an angel!

After Debbie J. completed the blocks for Kiss Me (who wouldn't kiss her over this beauty??) she worked on this rag rug for her guest room.

Here are samples of two of my projects: one giant block of Swoon from Thimble Blossoms using Strawberry Fields and two BOM blocks for Civil War Chronicles.
I'm tired of HSTs!

Marene was an extraordinary chef and supplied us with fabulous food. From sirloin burgers to chicken kabobs and grilled vegetables to fresh fruit and banana bread and never-ending candy bowls.

would breakfast be complete for quilt group without the ubiquitous can??

THANK YOU, MARENE for a fantastic quilting retreat!
See you all September 19th at Debbie J's for our birthday!
