No photos today, because we didn't get together. Karen didn't say what her plans were for today, since Mary had jury duty (I think sh'ell be busy with that for three days!), and wasn't able to come 'over the hill' to Karen's place. I bet Karen will be crafting! :-) She is probably in her studio right this minute enjoying the chipmunks, the birds, and her doggies, too! Pinky is probably crafting at home, today....at least I hope so, and has plenty of company with her two kitties. Just got off the phone with Jan and she said she is 'putzing around today.' We know how much company she has with her Buckutaslugs! :-) I (April) am trying to clean our house, so that it will be pristine for when we get back from our trip to Alaska. The OLD motorhome we bought (from Craig's List) isn't quite what it was cracked up to be, so, Bob, is trying to put it together well enough to get us up there and back. He has made several "parts runs", so is enjoying himself, inspite of the challenge. In the meantime, Amber and I have STACKS of STUFF all over this house. Stuff for her to take to Unalaska, Stuff for us to put in the motorhome, Stuff for her to use while on the 4-day ferry ride, and .....just STUFF!!! It's exhausting! Missing all your girls already. Have fun these next 3 weeks. I'll see you soon. Keep on CRAFTING!!!

Kathy Otto joined us today (Tuesday) for the day. It is always good to see her and see what she has been up to. She worked on crocheted hats today and showed us a beautiful painting she did of dancing shoes. It looked like a photo. It was so clear. I can't post a pic here as she had it on her camera for us to see.
Amber, April's daughter, was with us today and was also working on a calender for Alaska. We always enjoy it when she can join us.
The following are pics of all of us doing various projects. Pinky has started her 2nd rag run in greens and tans, Karen was working on altered books and cards, Jan was tearing strips for her next rug, April was working on a journal for her Alaska trip, & Mary was working on strips for another rug.
April shared lots of goodies with us that she found at a garage sale. She found beautiful cards at the Sister's quilt show and shared those with us also. Kathy brought several things to share with us also. That is one really neat thing about this group. If we find something coooool, we share it with each other.
Pinky challenged us to use her stamps of chicken wire and chickens, along with some of Karen's stamps of various farm items and make something. The following pics are of the results. You will note that Jan's are missing????? Is she a party pooper?
Number 1 Mary's
Number 2 Karen's
Number 3 Pinky's
Number 4 April's
Number 5 April's

Scrolls Works. Pinky mounts her own stamps and saves a lot of money that way. Maybe she can explain how she mounts them, in the comments section.
Rufus, Pinky's cat, slept through most of the visit in spite of the presence of Rocky. Good thing for Rocky.
See you next week at April's!
