Show and Tell from Common Threads

I am so bad about remembering to add photos.  Some days I have to change from Google to Chrome to Safari etc just to load photos.  Today I was able to load through Safari so.  These are photos of Novembers show and tell from Common  Threads Quilt Guild. 

This will be the opportunity quilt for 2014.  It is all hand quilted.  Just beautiful.  It is ready for its binding.

50TH High School Reuntion

I no sooner got home from Retreat in Los Osos then it was time to trade out suitcases and get on the road again.  

We had our 50th DeAnza High School reunion held in El Sobrante Calif.  I still can't believe it has been 50 years.  

We snapped photos in the hotel room before going down to the party.  Here I am.  

Here is Paul.  We were High School sweethearts.

At the reunion there were four couples that had been married 50 years,  We were all honored with
a cake.

It was really interesting as three of the four couples were all sitting at the same table.  (NO Not Planned).
I can't wait for the photos that were taken that night to be put on a CD and I can see everyone again.  It was wonderful and sad at the same time.  We have so many classmates on the deceased list.  We miss them all.

Thanks for stopping by.

Persis and Marcella - Kitchen duty.

We had a block exchange this retreat. Each person  was given 1/2 yard of the same fabric and it had to be used somewhere in their block.  What fun it was to see all the different ideas people came up with.
Can't wait to get my blocks put together.

Thanks for stopping by.
