Some fun home pics and some fun retreat pics

Life continues to fly by in a whirl! Today I thought I would share some fun pictures to give you a smile or two. I sure will take any I can get them. I'm sooooo stressed out at work and overwhelmed. The good news is I"m extremely busy because the new product I support is selling like hotcakes - the down side is I don't have much help to support it yet!

Anyway, thought you would like to see some pictures of Chloe jumping. It took Emily only 2 practices to get her to jump. This was last week. Now Emily can get her to jump over the top setting which is 36"! It is amazing. But to get her to do that Chloe has to be in the right mood - Emily hasn't quite got her doing it on command that high yet!

At the retreat we always have some form of entertainment Friday night. When Kay and Kay (2 of the teachers) do it you can be guaranteed a gut hurting laughing time. (Kay #1 taught my mystery class). Anyway, this year Kay did a kind of version of Lets make a Deal. They drew our names out of a "cow" and we had to go up on stage and the other Kay made us wear these funny hats. We then had to pic quilt #1, #2 or #3. We got the prize behind the curtain. Some were lovely prizes, others really funny stupid ones Kay and Kay made. The funniest part was Kay read a description about each. The joke prizes had the funniest descriptions. There is no way you can describe it - but believe me, it is hilarious!

I can't wait until our next guild meeting. We are having Kay and Kay do their Hats of to Quilting quilt display. They use these funny hats and show us some amazing quilts they own or borrow from friends. The main point of the show is "just to have fun" and have some laughs.


Last year Kay and Kay did "There's no business like Sew business". They dressed up and showed quilts that had to do with different movie/broadway songs. I"ll have to dig some of those pics out - they were so funny!

So enjoy the pics. Just all fluff tonight! Too tired to do anything serious!

That dog sure has made herself at home quickly - not sure who was having the most fun - the dog or the daughter - or maybe it's the mum with the funny hats :o)

Emily is doing a great job with Chloe! Or is Chloe doing a great job with Emily?! A lovely pair!

Sorry that work has you so stressed. Thank God for sewing!

Your Kay and Kay sound like quite the couple! How fun!
