We had a great time!

It was a wonderful weekend! We had so much fun! Above is Sossy, Heather and Laura working away... it was pretty late by the time I snapped this, so it is blurry. (Oh and I had the stupid setting set on my camera that makes it really hard to get a clear picture). And below is Lanna working on a really cute punchneedle project she drew!

Below is a sneak peek at what I worked on. Here is the manger for my nativity...

And I made another pincushion! (OK, I haven't sewn the wool shut yet. But I did get the sand in and the liner sewn shut)!


Last but not least look at this adorable wool felt green pumpkin Laura made for us! It was filled with candy! She made a ton of green, orange and gold ones. She posted about them not too long ago on her blog. They were so adorable! I spent a lot of time just visiting and having a great time. I did finish a few things and I'll share those later this week. Just wanted to pop in and say hi! (Ahhhh, yes I need to dust - so ignore that!)

It was a blast having you come and stay. Donovan was asking at dinner if you would be back tomorrow.:) Thanks also for bringing the great Chicago pizza. It was deliscious!

Looks like fun had by all and I love that green pumpkin. Very cute. And my mom used to use a pressure cooker for meals years and years ago. I always heard her say how dangerous they were so I've never used one. I'm sure they have improved now.
