Last weekend I got to visit my super-duper friends, Anthony and Tommy for Arts and Crafts Night! I haven't done anything hands-on creative in so long, and we don't get to spend all that much time together these days, so this was a Big Special Treat!
This is an image of the jumble on the worktable as we were being crafty and industrious and mostly telling funny stories.
I got to drink my tea out of the Happy Monkey Mug!
I love Mod Podge, but my bottle was old and separated and smelled strongly of vinegar. Luckily, Tommy had a new one, but I didn't end up using it anyway...maybe next time.
Anthony, the happy crafter, after I showed him how to do a running lock stitch to finish off the softie he had started some time back. He tells me it's almost finished, so I hope to get a photo soon! Is that not the *coolest* thread spool organizer on the table in front of him?! They got it from Tommy's mom (and I wanted to steal it, but I refrained).
I believe it was about 10 pm when we declared ourselves arts-n-crafted out. Tommy had worked the fastest all evening, and had an almost complete soft friend to show for his efforts.
Anthony is a very manly and menacing sew-er, witness:
And this is what I came up with, after hours of cutting and gluing pieces of felt:
My daughter declares it beautiful, so there!
And a group shot of the Happy Crafters, plus Mr. Scoots, who was not happy at having me come between him and his Men.
I am one lucky girl to have these two amazing guys as my friends. And I will tell you more another time....!
