A Special Day.......

When Dad passed away I requested that my art quilter friends not send flowers.  They are a very caring group and had supported me through the tough times.  I am blessed to have them as friends.  They decided they wanted to come to Sandwich and take me out to eat.  Most of them have to drive 1.5 - 2 hours to get here so this was very special.  Here are 4 of us.
This is all of us except the one who took the photo, the lady on the left in the photo above.  Yes the men are quilters too!  We had show and tell at my house first and then went down to the Bull Moose Bar and Grille.  Click on the link to read the history about the train car.  The weather was perfect for our outing and for their long drive to and from Sandwich.

Last night I got in a little sewing and the hand work on the binding is half done.  One more evening and I can call it a finish.

Lovely times was had by all from the looks of it. Friends are very precious. The binding will be conquered soon and another notch on the ruler for Wanda. Going to rain today. Good day to sew. Chris

You are truly blessed Wanda to have such wonderful, caring friends. Getting together like this is so precious and what a neat restaurant!

Gene Black said...

So glad you have such good friends. It seems to me that quilters can be the most loving and caring folks one meets.
Peace be with you my dear friend.

How lovely, Wanda! Friends are wonderful. That restaurant looks really neat.
I've read about your art quilt group but I'm wondering, do you meet once a month? What do you generally do? Is it for a morning, an afternoon, and what kinds of things do you do? Is it mostly show and tell or do do things?

That was so much more meaningful than flowers looks like you have some great friends. I bet you cherish them. Quilters make such good friends. Hugs to you. Have a great week-end

Needled Mom said...

What a caring group of friends! Those memories will last much longer than the flowers would have. That was a fabulous idea.

Sheila said...

Friends are wonderful. What would we do without them. Beautiful and unique restaurant.

good friends to have and that is a wonderful setting to meet in - I just looked at the link and it sounds and looks like a great meeting place!

That was a special lunch. Very thoughtful of your friends to do this for you!

It was a treat to see your creative Art Quilters group. Always fun to see faces of those we hear so much about. A great looking group for sure and I can see the fondness in their faces that they have for Wanda.

It looks like you have some very caring and wonderful quilting friends.......and I am particularly happy to see some of them are male quilters!

Gestures like that always mean so much. :)

Your art quilters are indeed a very special group of friends! How blessed you all are to have each other. Thanks for sharing the photos with us!

Looks like a fun group. Glad you have such a fine support group. I, too, got lots of support from my friends in the blogosphere when my daughter died....

Gotta go check out the Bull Moose, looks lovely.
Hugs

Sharon said...

and they are lucky to have you in their life. If you quilt, you have friends. I was told this early on, no matter where you go, you will meet other quilters. What a great way to celebrate

Mystic Quilter said...

I think it's a blessing to be part of a such a caring group of friends!

Muddling Through said...

What sweet friends! And I'm sure that is because you are a sweet friend to them. That backing fabric is gorgeous and makes such a good contrast to the calm front.

Taos Sunflower said...

Sounds like a wonderful day. Wish I could pop in and meet you for one of their great burgers!
