Sun and Dessert

Many thanks to Pattie for hosting the annual guild picnic and her beautiful lake-side home. This year's event had plenty of sun and plenty of dessert.

All of the food was yummy.

And the knitting — wow! (Click on a photo for a larger version.)

Joanne showed us some lovely items that she “rescued” from a neighbor's house-clearing.   

The picnic was great fun on a beautiful day in a beautiful location. Thanks to everyone, especially Pattie.
