Finished Pendants

As promised, here is a picture of the pendants I was working on. I really like how these turned out. Now I just need to get them in the mail.

New This Week...

Just Brandi and me this time. Brandi was able to get some of her husband's pants patched (something I need to do as well). 

And I worked on some necklaces for some great ladies. 

Not too eventful, but still a fun day. We had lunch outside in the sunshine. I almost forgot what that was. I'll post pictures of the necklaces when I get them done.

I apologize for not having any pictures to post this time. Stephanie hosted the group this time and I didn't have my camera.

Stephanie was working on organizing her food storage folders and information. She is inspiring me to get my butt in gear and get going on my food storage and emergency preparedness.

Brandi is starting a quilt that is going to be amazing with very beautiful colors. When she gets done we might have to all help her quilt or tie it.

Sherri worked on scrapbooking pages. Again, not something that is my area of expertise.

I was working on some baby booties.

So, again, sorry for no pictures. But it was fun to get together and visit and get caught up on all that is going on with each other.

Back At It

After having to cancel the last craft group because of sick kids, I was glad to pick it up again this week. And what a good way to start National Craft Month. There was only Stephanie and me, but it was still fun and we got stuff done. I got my curtains hemmed. Something I have been meaning to do for a long time. I didn't take pictures of that however. 

Stephanie got a pile of mending done. I should have got her to do mine while she was at it. I guess there is always next time.

I also worked on the blessing dress I am making for my friend Lexy. I was so excited when she asked me to make it. The pattern she picked is beautiful. You get a little sneak peek, Lex. I can't wait to finish it and see it on her little sweetheart.

I am so glad I decided to start this craft group. It is such a good excuse to get together and chat and get some projects done. Iris and Donevan love having other kids come over and play too. I like that they wear themselves out and take good naps in the afternoon, which means I can get even more done! Hooray for crafting!

Good Stuff

We had another Craft Group today. It was so much fun! I don't know why I haven't done this sooner. We had a great group of ladies that were able to make it. It was great to let the kids play together and have  a chance to have some grown-up conversation.

Here are some of the things that were created today.

Stephanie was working on some File Folder games. They looked like so much fun. I am thinking I need to make some.

Sherri was getting caught up on some scrapbooking. I wish I had the motivation to scrapbook. That is just something I've never really gotten into. But maybe with the help of these ladies I can get some done this year.

Brandi was making cards. They turned out so cute. She is very creative. I'll have to start having her make all my cards.

And here is what I was working on. A pair of booties. They are not all the way done yet. Still have to attach the strap on the side. I was thinking with pink buttons, but I'm pretty sure I'll make some little flowers to go on the side instead. When they are done I'll put some pics.

All in all, a very successful group. It gets me more and more motivated to get projects done. We crafted, chatted, and had some lunch. What more could you ask for?

First Meeting

We had our first group today. We were small in numbers (only 2 of us) but it was still fun and productive. I got the project I was working on done. Brandi got quite a bit of hers done too. She is making it as a gift so I am not going to say what it is or post pictures just in case the recipient happens to check this. But here is a picture of mine. I made this for a friends little girl. I really like how it turned out. I think she'll like it.
I'm really excited for this group and all the things I am going to get done. Hopefully next time we can have a better turn out.

We are going to start a craft group. It's mostly so we can finish all the U.F.O.'s  {un-finished objects} that we have stashed away. I for one have a ton. And there are a lot of other fun things to try. As of now we are going to meet every other week. That should give us enough time in between to either get really far on a project or completely forget about it until the night before we meet. Either way, we can work on it during the group. I am going to be taking pictures of the different projects that we all work on and posting them on here for all to see. 

So I hope that this gives me the motivation I need to get those boxes full of U.F.O.'s done. And I get to visit and have some social time for myself at the same time. 

Stay tuned.
