A Spring Lunch with Kris

The Purple Cats met this week at Kris's home for a beautiful, delicious and fun-filled afternoon. We are all madly stitching to finish up for the upcoming trunk show at the HMQS Conference next month.
The lovely Kris prepared a beautiful luncheon with attention to every detail.

From the dishes to the daffodils to the homemade lemon curd, she left nothing out.

And look out those beautiful filled strawberries.

And chocolate puddle cookies...just as good as they look.

Homemade lemon curd...also just as good as it looks! I tried mine on toast...mmm!

Miss Carol spent the afternoon trying to keep us organized and on task. It was hopeless. We did finally get through all the business of the trunk show and we should be just about ready.

Leisa was so sweet to help sew the binding down on my quilt.

And then there was Ronda who also helped sew down binding. But oh what a treat she was today. We giggled at Ronda all afternoon...she was really on a roll! We learned that she must have had her children when when was in the 3rd grade as she is so young.

Linda is putting the finishing stitches in one of her Baltimore Album applique blocks...almost there can do it!

Beautiful hands doing beautiful work...Purple Cats at their finest.

Ronda's hands are so sweet and have so many stories to tell.

Jill joined us a little late, but still just in time to have a few giggles.
Thank you Kris for hosting. It was such a delightful afternoon!
