Outdoor Crafting

My friend Maria came for the long weekend and just left late yesterday. We had tons of fun, but the time went by way to fast!

It was a wonderful, warm weekend and Maria and I REALLY wanted to craft. We had been to Jo-Ann earlier and both had projects to work on. But it was really nice and being inside seemed like a shame, so we took it outside. The wind was a little trouble, but over all it went well.

This is a project I am working on for ME! I love it and can hardly wait to show it to you.

Maria is working on a jacket for her and I think this fabric is just wonderful. If she sends me a photo I will post it when she is done. (Hint Hint Maria)

This is what the table looked like after a couple of hours of kids, games, and crafting.

Elijah was good and helped by doing a lot of playing by himself. But Mark did come out and play with him a bunch.

Ooohhhh what pretty fabric! I can't wait to see what you make...for yourself! What a clever idea..make something for yourself. I have a skirt that's 1/2 done from last summer. Maybe I'll finish it soon and have something for myself, too!

Do it;) It is fun to work on something that is not for others. Do not get me wrong I love making stuff for others, but every once and awhile it is nice to just do "me" stuff.

what a nice day.......and to have someone to craft with, that is AWESOME. I stalk people I meet and they are like....sewing? crocheting? crafting? ugh. So Curly Girl has no choice but to be my craft pal.
