JSSer’s go WHITE for June, 2014 Bee!

JSS June, 2014 was at Davene’s house and she chose the color WHITE!


It is hard to make a blog text WHITE. Blue? We all know Davene will be happy with blue!

But then we all know that Davene is another word for HAPPY!

JSSer’s dressed in WHITE, brought WHITE food and gathered at Davene’s for a memorable day of fun, creativity and inspiration!

Suz, Madelyn, Lynn and Pixie were in the kitchen area. Pixie has known Davene since grade school! O the stories these two have to tell!!!


Yes, we brought all WHITE food. Davene chose a red tablecloth to contrast all that WHITE.


You have to see the light fixture that is just above Davene’s head.


What would you bring to JSS if you had to make/mix/keep-with-the-theme of WHITE?

Yogurt covered pretzels?


White chile?


Cucumber sandwiches?



Yes, we all (well, almost all) wore white. And the food was – almost all white – potato salad, pasta salad, couscous with cauliflower, more cauliflower, cucumber sandwiches, white-meat-fried-chicken, white gravy, white chile, pop corn, crackers and cupcakes with at least an inch of white icing! No one did mashed potatoes! As always it was YUMMY!!!

JSSer’s in WHITE were o-so-comfy stitching and catching up with one another!

These two group photos really make me laugh! What’s up with all the straight faces!  There was SO MUCH laughter I can hardly believe I have these photos! It is hard to think of JSSer’s without fun and laughter and to have these photos is TOO funny!

You have seen all the ladies in WHITE. Did you notice the statement “almost all” were in WHITE? Any guesses on who did not go-with-the-theme?


Um, see why I said “almost-all” wore WHITE…..shall we give her the jet-lag excuse since Pam flew in from Alaska the day before bee? (More about Pam, next blog.)

As added fun to June bee meeting and as not to interrupt keeping-with-the-WHITE theme, some of us wore charm bracelets. IMG_2122

The week prior to this JSS bee meeting was the TVQG guild meeting and we had lunch together. There was a discussion about charm bracelets, so we decided we would add bracelets to what we could wear at the all-WHITE-day at Davene’s. Several us wore our charm bracelets from high school. Some were from travels with husband and family.  Three of us had San Francisco cable car charms. Some had mother’s or grandmother’s charm bracelets. One of us had a pocket knife on her charm bracelet.

Who do you think that was? Choose from these.


There is one more JSSer who wore WHITE to celebrate with us.


JSSer’s are THE BEST! You can never be sure what they are “up to.”  Even if they have been hospitalized this week. Even if they are in pain. Even if they have to stay home from bee. Participation is a matter of perspective!  And LaNelle always manages to stretch our definition of perspective!  LaNelle, we hooted and hollered over this! Thank you SO MUCH for adding to the fun, creativity and inspiration!

Stay tuned for next blog about this June JSS bee meeting.
