Crafting with friends

On Monday my friend Sara and her little girl came over for a play date...for both the big and little girls. Sara and I crafted while the girls played. It was so much fun! We definitely need to do it more often. Sara worked on beaded bookmarks, which were gorgeous but of course I forgot to take pictures of them to show you. I worked on burp cloths for Rachel. (Surprise Rach, they're in the mail!)


And, Sara got my new best friend up and running for me! I bought a serger!! Sara decided to upgrade so I bought her old one from her. It runs like a breeze (I haven't tried to change anything yet) and I am excited to put it to use. Best of all is the free tech support from the previous owner, right Sara? Ha, ha!!
To prepare for our fun crafting day I actually cleaned my craft room. Much to my surprise, it's still clean!! It really is more fun to work on a whole clean table instead of the 6 square inches I'm usually left with. We'll see how long it lasts!

You are such an amazing friend Rox! Reggie and I love to cuddle with the blanket you made him every night. Dad will love the new burp clothes because he only uses the other two you gave us. I can't wait for them to get here! Hope to see you and Syd soon.

Sounds so nice! I wish I had local friends who crafted. And how exciting to get a serger! I can't wait to see what you so with it.

I miss having a crafting buddy near by. My friend Shone and I were just talking about how crazy we would be if we lived close to each other again. LOL

Love the burb cloths and the blankie you made for baby Reggie! So cute.

Oh and I LOVE your idea of the quarter jar to tally when you use items from your stash! I'm going to do that, too!

hurray for a serger! I never got around to buying mine...I'm kind of chickening out. They still scare me. enjoy your clean workspace while it lasts!

Sergers are the bomb! I love having one on hand even though mine isn't the greatest one in the world.
I need to clean out my craft room, too...
Maybe after Christmas I can get that done....
