This weekend I met up with some girlfriends for some crafting goodness! There’s no set schedule to the meet-ups, and just whoever can come comes (its a changing group). We all just bring whatever we’re working on and a snack to share. It is fun to chat and see the other cool stuff coming together in the room, such as sewing, scrapbooking, cross stitching, etc. And yummy goodies too!
Another great part for me is that it forces me to get work done in preparation for the get together. I don’t know about you other sewers out there, but my work tends to be scattered all over the room in various stages of assembly. A get together makes me clean things up as I figure out which project is portable, or even to make a project portable!
All that to say, I *finally* cut into some of my blue and white snowflake fabrics on Saturday afternoon leading up to the get together, and at the get together I managed to put together 12 snowman bodies!
I did the little black buttons while watching football Sunday, and now of course need to make the eyes and carrot noses. The quilt also has trees for the alternating blocks. I haven’t even started those yet, but I definitely got a good start on the quilt on Saturday. So happy!
