october’s craft weekend

we had not had a Craft Weekend since May!
it was fun to get back in to the groove and bring new friends into the house to get crafty.
🙂
we felt a little rusty on the thursday preparing but we quickly remembered what we do.

we made our ruffle aprons on friday night like we always do.
these girls were great learners and great with color!IMG_6866IMG_6900IMG_7592IMG_7591IMG_7597
i think that Craft Weekend makes sewing less scary to learn.
i love to teach newbies how to work their machines and beat the ruffles!

we shopped for antiques and junk all afternoon on saturday… my favorite thing to do if i’m not crafting.
