This weekend my crafty friends got together for another fun day of crafting. This time we made St. Patrick's Day Garlands. I feel LUCKY to have friends that like to craft, enjoy good food and visit and laugh while creating. Jennifer, far left, found us a cute example to go by but there was no tutorial....so if, this was your post, let me know. Your picture was so cute, I want to give you credit!
It's so funny how we all look at an example and then make it our own with the fabrics, materials, ideas, etc of our choosing. Since I like vintage thing and love ephemera, I turned my garland (above) into a more vintage-y version.
Our hostess made us a St. Patrick's themed lunch with Irish Stew, Green Soda Bread, and Green Peach Ice Tea. Cheers to you Denise and Jennifer!
And here's the Hostess with the Most-est...Fredna. She always throws a great party and everything is so coordinated. I should REALLY get her involved in Blogging....she'd be awesome at TableScapes. She's also an expert seamstress and can whip up the cutest pillows and drapes.
Here are some of the items I pulled together to create my garland. Here is work in progress for some of the other ladies project.
The crafting table....where the creative juices were flowing...........
And here's my finished project.........I have a little bit more tweaking to do. It will go up on the mantle soon.
Are YOU lucky enough to have friends that like to do crafts with you??? Or do you prefer to work alone? I enjoy seeing every one's own personality emerge when I'm with a group...and of course, the girl talk is priceless. What's said at the crafting table----stays at the crafting table! RIGHT!!??!?! LOL!
