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...
