More Christmas in July Photos

Shopping with Helen this morning made me remember that I forgot to post the rest of the photos from our Christmas in July workshops last month. Helen has a lovely big home out in the country, and we actually had two sewing days out there this summer, the first of which was the Christmas in July one. Helen has a big covered porch that wraps around three sides of her home, so we sewed outside all day long and had a buffet table too for snacks and lunch. We ate a fabulous pot luck supper on the porch on the other side of the house too.

This is the porch on the side of Helen's home. Wouldn't you just love to laze around out here all summer long, sipping mint juleps or something?

What's a quilters' get-together without Show and Tell? I thought I had more photos, but I must have already posted them, so here are just a few more. These are Barb's adorable little pincushions. Barb has a thing about pincushions--they're a favorite of hers. No pattern for these, Barb just dreamed them up because she's clever that way.

And here is Kay's Christmas project she worked on. I really liked this one a lot.

What a fabulous place to sit and sew for a day! Looks like so much fun! Kay's table runner looks fun and those little pincushions are fabulous! It's like a mini-holiday!
