Sew Much Fun on a Hot Afternoon!!

This past Saturday was class/party time again!!! The girls that had signed up for a previous 12x12 class that I had to change were asked to come back for a new & improved day of fun! It was so hot outside I decided to go with a luau theme! Why not make it tropical!

Setting up for this one was so much fun! I still am not sure which part of this is my favorite! All the decorations just make me smile!

Here is another example of things that I try out that just don't work....caramel apple bites. Sounds great right! But alas all the caramel just rolled right off the apple bites onto the plate. I am sure a different type of caramel would have worked better. But they were still yummy!!

                                                                 Table settings for class!

                                                                       Kit & supplies
                                                            along with name tags-just for fun!!

Box lunches were on the menu. I decided since there would be quite a bit of sewing that the class should be a bit longer to allow time to complete the project. So I included lunch! So glad I did. It was lots of fun to prepare. We had homemade waldorf chicken salad croissants, fruit kabobs, veggies, chips in little bags (don't think we got a pic of those), Jone's soda or Mike's hard raspberry lemonade and strawberry shortcake for dessert.

Using mason jars for drinks and dessert is a favorite! They just look so dang cute. I know...I am a little crazy but hey...I have a good time. :)

                                                                   So good on a hot afternoon!!

The ladies hard at work! Many of them brought their own sewing machines so class went a little quicker. Although as per my classes...I usually pack too many things into the album and today was no exception. We stitched, used our sewing machines, carved stamps, made homemade stamps from foam & painted our way through the pages.

Some of the them didn't want to be on camera....hope it is OK to show this view from a distance. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

Here is a shot of the front cover of our album. It was so much fun! Thanks to all the ladies that shared the day with me!!
