My favorite things. What could be better?!
In this life, where I seem to add more to my to-do list than I have time to check off, getting together with my girlfriends is one sure-fire way to get a craft I’ve been dying to make made, err, at least started.
As far as I’m concerned, there are two guidelines to hosting a successful open-craft afternoon: pick a craft and promise sumptious delights and yumminess.
Besides being crafty, when hosting a gathering, Kristin is second to none.
My craft of choice today was embroidering
Who ever says creative minds are rarely tidy? Storing loose floss on miniature clothespins isn’t anything brilliant–really simple–but, sure works for me.
The day ended with History Pub at Father Luke Room, McMenamins.
Topic of the evening was Whiskey Flat and Prohibition: The Happy Days of Home Brew and Moonshine in Bend’s Mill Worker Neighborhoods with Tor Hanson–hosted by Deschutes Historical Museum, Oregon Encyclopedia, and McMenamins Old St. Francis. From simple drunkenness to moonshine gangs dynamiting policemen’s homes, I truly enjoyed the history lesson ripped from headlines tales of prohibition Bend.
Do you have a favorite craft or outing you share with your peeps?
Are you, like me, still in holiday mode? Or have you reverted back to work mode?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
