Summer Camp

First, I have to ask you for your feedback on the new blog format. Hopefully you will be as excited about it as I am. Now for the story.

Every year I host an event in my home for all the friends that can attend in June. It is called “summer camp” since I started by inviting all the friends that go to spring and fall camp, even though this is only one day.

This is the picture of everyone starting to mill around in the living room.

Lots of conversations ensue with the groups in the  room discussing quilting projects and techniques:

And for me it is not only summer camp but also a celebration of my birthday month. These ladies always make it a special time!!
