a whole lot of goodness


wow. i have had an amazing week, and it is only wednesday! on monday i went over to karin's house for craft day with mary jane butters of mary jane's farm. it was amazing. i met some wonderful ladies and i gained some invaluable crafting knowledge. this is a picture of me with mary jane, her daughter, meg, and meg's daugther, stella. there are some more pictures of our fun posted over at karin's here and here. so, the first thing i learned was how to make a rag rug. which meant i also learned how to crochet. you can't beat learning two things at one time, especially learning them from mary jane!


next, it was on to tatting. i love to find old pillow cases with tatting on the edges. but now, i can do it myself. (however, that doesn't mean that i will cease to buy the old ones!)

i tried to get a close up of the tatting, but the lighting here was not cooperating, so it just kept coming out blurry. sorry.
some of the other girls brought goodies for everyone at the gathering (thanks jess, kathie and jeannie!). here is the loot...

and if that wasn't enough, last night i received my package that i won from samantha. thank you so much! i got to get to knitting!

i have more fun stuff to post this week. but you will have to wait...

Amy- I love that picture of you MaryJane and Meg!! You all look so cute!
How big is your rug? I still do not have strips made. :( But I did pull out some sheets today to start making one. Have to finish the tatting first before I move on.
It was so nice to finally meet you!I really loved having all of you here. It's a bit sad here now that the excitement of the day has worn off. So, we have to do this again!

sounds like so much fun! I am looking forward to going to Amy Karol's (Angry Chicken) booksigning party for Bend the Rules Sewing in November at Bolt Fabric Boutique in Portland OR. It's so much fun to get together with like-minded people. Especially those you have admired from afar via blogland.

There you are! I miss your face :(
So, are we going to restart the knitting club or what? Just knocked the dust off my unfinished project last week.
