Oh what a lovely crafty day!!

Mimi cleverly arranged a sewing bee over at Liz's cozy cottage, minus the wee one. Kalin (my other half), Jeff (Liz's other half), and Grand Daddy (Mimi's other half), all took Violet to see The Tale of Despareaux at the Movie Tavern.

Liz and I started the day by making a break-neck trip to the Cabbage Rose, and Jo-Ann's to pick up some last minute supplies.
We met at the rendezvous point (Liz's cottage) at noon and ate a light lunch. Liz made her curry chicken salad. Mama brought fruit salad.

With that under our belt we set up our crafting centers. This consisted of two sergers, three sewing machines, a cutting area, and an ironing area. There was no shortage of equiptment here. :) We all whipped out our projects and got to work.

Mama worked on making cute market bags.

Liz worked on some making and embellishing throw pillows for her back bedroom.

I worked on Liz's lap quilt.

Later for a little boost I made frozen chocolate lollipops. Liz coined the name in honor of Anna Maria Horners beautiful fabric line.

We had a blast. It was so wonderful to be together. We decided that it must become a tradition.
