Sew Fun…BBQ 2008

Yesterday was the big BBQ in NYC (aka Diva-Q).  At 1pm, we had torrential rains and were getting quite nervous trying to figure out how in the world we were going to fit 175 people in our house.

But by 3pm when the party started, the sun was shining!  Talk about luck!  We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather.






























Thank you to all my friends which made this the BBQ ever!!!
