Expo-Couverte Quilt Show

closing event with a flare......

but first here is another Karen Neary finish 
Member Christina's  Diamond's Are A Girl's Best Friend
And her bargerllo table runner.   

These are beautifully done and to think it is her first year quilting. 

and so the guild closed its doors for the July and August months and as predicted we went out with a bang. 
The Thimot sisters  

Members  Nicole and Janice

and the other sister member Carmen organized a fantastic and I must say "decadent" array of foods ..  
 Heating up ... in anticipation for 
 Oh yes..the chocolate fountain... wow!  
 and everyone is ready to indulge.....
in this  "sinful", the other term for decadent.... menu the 3 sisters prepared for us.  

On that same line we then have member Elaine who explains to us the next activity that will take place the rest of the evening..  
"Strip Poker" 
 Yes you read it right but ... no no the game is 
to play with 2½ " strips 
 and we get ready 
 Member Anna checks out her loot! 
 Member Charmène racks up a pot... 
 and lo and behold I even win a pot... but not for long 
 Game strategy is discussed 
 Member  Clara puts in her ante 
 and there is member Charmène racks it up again ..... 
my stash is getting low and sure enough the next round  my strips are all gone... 
 and the strips keep on being passed around
 in the end our Junior member Marie-Claude(center) won most of the strips. This is the gal who at the beginning was appalled that her grand-mother Clara was going to play strip poker and did not want to hear about it. She caught on early in the game what was at  stake and that it was not that "Sinful" ; joined in only to end up a winner and happy as she is making a "hexie" project.

 A wonderful evening was had by all and we went home with a bit of nostalgia at the thought we were going away for two months.

If you recall in an early post I mentioned Beth from Mrs Puglsey Emporium had given us a beautiful sewing basket? 

Well we all wrote our names for  a chance to win it  and 

Member  Yvette  
  was the lucky winner...
Merci! Beth from all of us and especially member Yvette ! 

And now we prepare for the
