Friday Fun!

Fresh clean mountain air just invigorates me and makes me feel like quilting!! Here's what was going on with the Friday Quilters with Claire at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop at 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Darlene, below, had joined us downstairs to work on her Rail Fence set on point in beautiful Civil War reproduction fabrics.

I love that she's used only tans and deep creams and no whites to give the Patriotic look a colonial twist. So homey looking!

Sue was back from her travels to Israel and Palestine and back to work on her greens, blacks, and buttercream yellows. So pretty!

Sue also was giving some final details of instruction to Beverly, who was making more microwave bowl potholders.

Soon Bev had it figured out!

Soon these two halves got sewn together with right sides facing each other. They are so cute and so practical, too!

I was resuming my efforts on my third Scrappy Jacob's Ladder, but I left early when, yikes!, I ran out of units from my swap groups. No problem, the September batch will soon be arriving in my mailbox!

Thursday was a bit of fun, too. Husband Wonderful, my Felix, joined me at the annual September Open House Gala at the Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center.

We enjoyed a big hearty Roast Pork & Gravy dinner with butternut squash and red bliss mashed potatoes with a side dish of apple crisp. The meal was a $2 donation per Senior, $6 per adult.

There was even live entertainment with a lady Canadian singer who was wonderful.

What made us laugh the most was the buffet style dessert table that had tangerine "pumpkins" with a wee bit of celery as their stems. So clever!

And how about these trays of Black Sheep Cupcakes? LOL! Adorable!

Or maybe you'd prefer Pretzel Moose Cupcakes??

We had a wonderful time and the Spanish Club put on a very entertaining skit for us, too!

On the way home, we stopped off to buy a gallon jug of 2% milk for our house, but these just jumped into my cart and insisted on coming home with me! Does this ever happen to you?

I'm linking to Love Laugh Quilt Link.
Happy quilting!

Klondike Heath? Who knew?? I wonder if they are gluten free?
Another fun-filled post, Vic. Love all of those dessert options. I'll have to try the tangerine pumpkin idea. Very cute!

Keep on climbing those ladders, Vic!
I got so far behind on swapping that I'll just have to wait for a new batch of swaps.

Love the pictures of the desserts! The pumpkin tangerines were a hoot! Thanks for sharing what's happening.

I always enjoy reading about your adventures. And I can't wait to see that latest Jacob's Ladder.
