The Fairmont Way Day Spa

This past weekend was a lovely time spent with girlfriends, lots of good fun, food, sewing, and laughter. I did, in fact, remember the camera, so there will be pictures. Don't you love this lounge chair cover? Pam's neighbors made a set for her as a thank you for using her pool.

She actually made each one of us a lovely personalized towel set. We really did feel like we were at a spa.

I loved jumping in the pool for exercise and to cool off. I took my Aqua-Jogger belt and got some real exercise, and we all brought healthy food. Fresh fruit, wonderful salads and Weight Watcher desserts. We all felt so virtuous!

Here is our hostess hard at work in her studio area, which is mere steps from the pool. She is working on quilting a raffle quilt for her guild. I love the kaleidescope blocks on her design wall. You can see various background fabrics being auditioned there.

This pineapple block table topper is very traditional, but I love it. The scrappiness appeals to me, I think. Not sure how much more Blogger will let me post right now, so stay tuned for more pictures later.

Oh, Jen, sounds wonderful. I so envy you your real live quilty friends. I am a (newbie) lone quilter and my only quilt buddies are the cyber kind. No complaints about the cyber buddies, mind you, but I know how much you enjoy your pals and I always love hearing about your gatherings with them.

What fun! I think the monogrammed towels were such a neat idea! It must have been a blast. I too love the scrappy pineapple table topper.
