Relaxing Weekend! Part 1

Isn't she the cutest!!!  Well, Tommy did it again!  Tommy provided five of us another relaxing weekend as well as introducing us to new quilters and getting together with  'old' friends (no, they really aren't old! just old acquaintances!  Is that a better term?).
Tommy always makes you feel you are part of her family rather than an acquaintance!!!  AND of course feeds us so well!!!  I don't even want to get on the scale!
 On our arrival Friday, Tommy provided us  lunch of BBQ sandwiches, delicious cole slaw and chocolate chip cookies, Mexican enchilada's for dinner Friday night along with her delicious apple pie that she made while we all stood around and watched (ok, we did cut up apples, does that count!?).
Saturday we had lunch out (more on that tomorrow as I'm all about the food right now!); lasagna/salad for dinner, more pie!   Then on Sunday Tommy  made us BLT's with her own homegrown tomatoes,and broccoli salad to give us energy for on our way home.
We each got a bag of Tommy's home made famous pesto to take home to boot!!!  
Yes, our weekend included lots of food, drink (not really that much...only Tommy and I!) sewing and conversation!  It was great to meet Tommy's sister, Mike and another fellow art quilter,  Mary  (she has been part of several of the group challenges).  Thank you for another wonderful weekend, Tommy!!

The following pics are self explanatory...more pics tomorrow of our weekend!  I really have to get off this computer...wasting too much time!  Here are some of the show and tell!  You'll have to head over to Tommy's blog to see her work as some of Tommy's new work can't be shown now!  IT IS SPECTACULAR!  The pictures are in my head!
