I thought ya’ll deserved some shots of how much fun we had! Not that pictures could ever do it justice. Trust me, at one point my “friends” had me laughing so loud I spewed water clear across the table … served them right! lol
Here are Jim, Sharon, and Baby Joshua receiving their Pals baby quilt on Dessert Buffet night --
Speaking of Dessert Night.....
That's only about half of the desserts on offer. Talk about a sugar rush!!!!!
General enjoyment shots:
SusanTN sorts stash in the Stash Room (we all bring our no longer essential patterns, kits, and fabric, they are sold at great discount, and the next-to-the-last night of the convention we all get a gift certificate to whatever shop has come for a share of the take)
The Crabby Mike's Crew (aka "Where's the crab legs and pass the drawn butter") -- Julie, me, Emily, Dawn, Susan, Miss Ida, and Chris
The Other Crabby Mike's Crew -- Shelleen, Char, and Laurie
Julie, Steph, and Chris in the Stitcher's Purse class
Mary of M Designs (witht he yellow papers) and the SHORT line in her shop-on-the-road
Avona's Sistine Chapel
Part of the grab bags from Grab Bag nite (any receptacle of your choice filled with at least $15.00 in new stash-- mine was a glas basket with finishing forms, fabric for backing pillows, pinkeeps, etc., linen and jobelan, and a bunch of overdyed threads)
Ornies on the ornie exchange table (for every ornie you bring, you get a raffle ticket; when your number is called you hop over to the table and pick any ornament you want in exchange)
Sharon gives Amy a thank you plaque for 10 wonderful years of fun from Pals
And Amy and Ray get a chance to read it
