Craft Day with Friends

Last Saturday was a beautiful day... our Autumn weather was gorgeous and my day was Blessed with the gathering of friends at my home.  We spent the day creating art, enjoying good food & wine and sharing lots of heart-smiles & laughter!

     I offered two optional Halloween/Autumn projects to create.
Most everyone also brought a project of their own to work.

The first project was creating a mixed media canvas art


My canvas base got done, but it still needs other textures, hum... what?



Missed getting a photo with Lee holding her canvas art... this is her canvas art.

These Autumn art canvases are wonderful, don't you agree?

Our second project was decorating vintage felt mini witches hats



(Oh goodness, Marj had me almost in tears laughing!)

Lee & Marj


Beth working on her own project of 'pinnies'.  I love her work, always beautiful!  

Darn, I totally overlooked snapping a photo of another textile piece Beth brought with her.  She is combining swatches of vintage textiles together with stitchery/embroidery.  She had us each sign this piece and date it.  I can hardly wait to see its finale!  

I signed my name & date and wrote Blessings and Joy... just what this day of friendship brought us.

Blessings and Joy to you!
