THE FABULOUS HOTEL BLACKHAWK!!
You know what a big fan I am of the Hotel Blackhawk. Here's the blog post I wrote about the first get-together we had after their Grand ReOpening in 2010...
Since that first Cousin's Party -- I've been back many times -- for wonderful occasions. And I am never disappointed.
|Rebecca took our order and brought coffee in a gorgeous shiny carafe, three different desserts, and some hot tea...(is it a bad thing that I know the waitress's name?)|
|Sandy and Linda...|
|Me, Mary and Linda...|
|Maybe the presentation isn't EVERYTHING...but it DOES matter, y'know??|
|After our dessert smorgasbord -- we adjourned into the lobby for our Sew and Tell.|
|My favorite photo of the day. I love that the light makes Mary's hair look like a big crown. I mean -- A BIG CROWN....like she ratted it up into a peak. Awesome. I'm gonna frame this one...|
|Mary, checking out a small part of the MASSIVE collection of Splendid Sampler blocks.|
|Mary showed us the new Criss Cross apron pattern. (that's her Mom's vintage tablecloth on the back).|
|THIS APRON IS PERFECT in every way. And you can buy it -- for only $10 -- on MaryMulari.com|
|I love her gloves, made out of two way stretch fabrics.|
|I enjoyed seeing the new projects Mary made -- some of them used to live on t-shirt mountain.|
|I think most towns have a fancy hotel.|
