Red Hatters Engage in Adult Coloring at Queen's Home

Saturday, June 24, 2017

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico gathered at Queen Ladybird's home (aka Carla Kerr) to engage in adult coloring and to enjoy a lunch of pot luck salads, ice tea and coffee. The play DVD of "The Haunted Garden" was a surprise bonus.

The weather is too hot here to try to do anything outside so we are thinking of things to do where it is air conditioned. As I write this it is 100 degrees outside!

One member, Jean Courtier, brought two huge boxes of Red Hat regalia donated by a lady whose mother had passed and she wanted Red Hatters to use them. With the loot divided up, we than enjoyed watching a DVD of a play that Carla was in at the Rohovec Theatre at NMSU-A.
Still watching the DVD
L to R: Lu Mattson, Gail Swineford, VQ Donna Williams, Trudy Reese, Queen Carla and Jean choosing which pictures to color
Doug finally got our attention. Lu, Gail, Donna, Trudy, Carla and Jean
As you can see, we are all seriously coloring
And the beat goes on
We are enjoying coffee and grapes
I am making progress with my "Believe in Yourself" poster
Donna moving right along with her coloring
It looks like we are closing in on our objectives
Lu was the first to finish and isn't this lovely? By the way, Lu is a very accomplished oil painter.
Time for our salad luncheon and it was delicious and quite varied
Lively conversation ensued while we dined
Jan Jennings came running in from the Alamogordo Quilt Show
Here we are with the finished product, each quite unique and lovely.

The first time we indulged in adult coloring, Donna was not enthusiastic at all. Now, she asks,"When are we going to color again?" This is really a pleasant way to chat among ourselves and be creative at the same time. Also it keeps us inside out of that awful heat. We will be doing this again somewhere along the way. I finished mine (I'm slow) after everyone left and placed it on my refrigerator along with Lu's who forgot hers.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photography for the great pictures.

This is all I have to say for now.
