There were 11 of us attending Day of Creativity and it was a wonderful time of sharing, laughter, and oohing and aahing over everyone's projects. There was lots of goodies to eat and a birthday was celebrated also with a chocolate obsession cake from a local bakery.
One attendee had brought beautiful, so life-like photographs that she had taken in her yard of all the different varieties of flowers she grows along with some of the local bug population that hangs out there. She was making note cards from them.
Our quilters were working on a special gift for someone and were able to put all the squares together. Beautiful shades and patterns of green. It will probably get sewn together and the quilting started at our next get together.
One of our beaders was working on a beaded macrame piece and another was working on finishing a beautiful garden bracelet in shades of sky blues and aquas.
There are seven of us participating in the Dress for Success project/challenge. Each of us put a bag of beads (of all sorts) together, placed them in a box and then we each picked a bag. From there, it's just let our imaginations take us to making a beautiful piece of jewelry.
I was very happy to be invited to join some of the gals that work at one of our LBS for an evening of beading and show and tell. Although a small group it was wonderful spending time with them outside of the store. There's lots of inspiration there and gave me an opportunity to get to know them better.
I hope you've had an opportunity to take a look at Year of Jewelry 2008.
Until then....Happy Beading!
