ANNUAL ELK FALLS WEEKEND
Here three of us are working on Kathi's binding about 10:30PM during our Elk Falls weekend. (Colleen was taking the picture.) We finished Kathi's quilt in time for her to give it to her college nephew for his birthday. Yea!!!
He had asked her to show him how to quilt. So she had him cut and sew together the top of a Turning Twenty. Then she had it machine quilted. She sewed on the binding and Sharon and I helped her do the hand part on the back. Of course, we gabbed (and laughed) all the while.
Best weekend of the year! We decided it ended too quickly and next year we will make it four days instead of three.

These are my crazy friends from way back in school in Gardner. Of course, they don't really look like this.
We found these masks at the Red Buffalo in Sedan, Ks. Colleen (3rd from left) and Kathi (left) thought these would be fun for gifts at Christmas to some of their family. Then we put them on and showed them to Jane Fry, where we were staying in Elk Falls. Really freaked her out and we all laughed so much that we just had to have pictures of us all. As one of my friends said, "it was the best $4. that we spent". Hope their families have as much fun with them as we did.
