Here are a couple of examples of the quilts we could make from the block kits we were buying:
Here are my long time and new friends that I got to make the rounds with:
I am the short one in the the middle. Sorry I never smile at the right time when the picture is taken. It was hard to pick a picture that someone was not squinting or not smiling at just the right moment so I decided to pick the picture that everyone else was looking good in. One day I'll take a picture that I am happy with and finally have one to add for my profile. One day...
We had a favorite shop that also included a large yarn section:
We all brought food to share and made some awesome dinners and had some great dips and snacks. One of my new friends taught me how to knit along with another friend who already knew how but needed some help starting a new project. We are working on this dishcloth pattern:
I cannot even explain how we were getting taught but it was hilarious and I think we laughed so hard that it wore us out more then our day of shopping.
I made everyone a felt book to keep needles or pins in. Here is what they look like:
I have more of these cut out ready to put together, I just need to find more of the scissor charms that I used.
It is my blog anniversary this month, I have been putting together a little something to give to one of my bloggy friends and I want to add one of these needle books to it. So stop back this week when I post because sometime between today and the 30th I hope to post a give away! I know this was a long post but I had such a great time I wanted to share it with you. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
