Girl's Day Out

Isn't this beautiful? Our friend Terry went to a wedding in India and brought us each a gorgeous gift. They are the bits and pieces of saris, sewn together, that look a little like a crazy quilt She picked out colors she knew we would love. Mine is pink.

Cheryl's is blue (love the look on her face!)
Jane's is beautiful shades of turquoise, this picture makes it look very washed out.

Sujata's was very her! Some of the designs felt like they had an African influence to me.

Christine's is a very deep purple/gray again my camera makes it looked dull.
Thank you Terry we all love them and will think of you every time we see them.

This was the wedding invitation, that was like a small book. The colorful cards are the activities planned for the guests.....the yellow one that you can't read says "yacht".
Her pictures and stories were amazing, they even rode a camel!

We also had some show and tell. Jane has a kid's quilt to machine quilt and was asking us our opinion on what she might do.

Sujata's Christmas quilt.

Christine's blocks from our playdate with Sujata a few weeks back. I really want to get back to this time!

Christine's quilt for her granddaughter for Christmas.
Cheryl is making these to put under a glass table top at her house in the Poconos.

Cheryl's beautiful quilt that hung in Houston. I love the colors!

I have nothing to show because the things I have been working on are gifts!

After a wonderful lunch that Christine made for us, we made our way home and decided we need at least another day or two to catch up! Thanks girls for a fun day.
