Lee's Summit Quilters' Guild Part II

Helloooooooooo! Sorry for the delay in my post today. Technically it is still Wednesday. hee,hee,hee ;)  I've been in Woodbridge, VA for the past five days having a play date and chat with the gals there and hanging out with my dear friend, Shannon Shirley. I will post about that adventure next Wednesday.

Today I want to share Part II of my visit with the Lee's Summit, MO Guild. Last week I shared Nancy's creative space with you. She said she was liking Nancy's Nest as a name for her sewing room. I think it's great!

This first group of photos is from the guild meeting show and tell. Be prepared to be blown away. So much talent! (the photos were taken with my phone as I didn't have my big girl camera with me)


 She had Grandpa's and Grandma's boots. Too funny!








































Nancy was my quilt holder upper helper when I gave my chat. She rocks...just say'in.



Next, these lovely ladies were my Play Date participants.


Donna, who is absolutely hilarious with her quick whit.



Carole, one of the trouble makers who made us laugh all day.




Diana, aka "Princess Diana," the other trouble maker.


Peggy who tried to get her work done even though she was sitting next to one of the trouble makers.

Edwina (so glad she could get the day off from work!)


Barb, who reminds me of actress Meg Ryan.

Mary Ann (who looks like your twin Tamala!)

Jo Ann (who rescues yard bunnies!!!)

and Nancy, my new forever friend.

It was a super fun day and I truly enjoyed spending time with these wonderful gals as they created my "Spot of Peppermint Tea."

I had a very special class surprise! My blog friend, Meg, stopped by with Flip Flop the Angora bunny!!!  

You know I about passed out from all the fluff!! Meg has loved bunnies since she was eight years old and she has 13 Angora's.

Sooooooooooooooooo much cuteness!!!!


Meg also brought me a beautiful Fraktur book and a lovely card, which I will treasure always. It is always a special treat to meet blog friends in person.


Meg, send me an email. I can't find your email address!!! 

Hop over and visit the Lee's Summit Guild blog HERE.
I hope you are having a fun week. I can't believe August is almost over. They still haven't started my house. Poo! I'm keeping bunny ears crossed it will be soon.

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle
