Get together at April's

We haven't been able to get together as often as we'd like, but this week 3 of us gathered at April's for a few hours.  We really missed seeing Mary and Pinky! And Lyla too!   We have been working on the round robin calendars but decided to wait until they are finished and will photograph them then and show you.  They are coming along great!  Wonderful months to enjoy next year.  Karen was working on a month for April, you can glimpse her efforts in progress above.

April was working on some Christmas tags.  She is using some paint chips that she collected from the paint store.  Many uses for those freebies!

Jan was doing some hand stitching on a small needle felted piece.

April has also been working on some hand drawn designs on card stock ornaments.  She said they are pretty slow going but they sure are pretty!

Above are some of the little ornamental gift tubes that Jan made.  She posted a tutorial on them a couple of weeks ago, they are ready to fill and pass out for Christmas.

We probably won't be getting together until after Christmas but hopefully one of us will post something for you all to peek at.  In the mean time, all of us wish all of you the most

Merry Christmas! 
Be well, stay safe, and keep in touch.

I think these people had the head start on Zentangle.  I just found this to be so beautiful.  It is a bride from India on her wedding day.  They decorate their hands like this with henna.  It is a dye that eventually wears off.  Some people dye their hair with it or do temporary tatoos with it.  I just thought this was so neat and wanted to share it with you.

We weren't able to get together this week as April's schedule was different, Jan's car wasn't ready, Karen was having some problems with her dental work, Pinky went with her husband for a medical appt. in Longview, and I stayed home and worked on some calendar pages for Jan and Karen.  I have Lyla's to do and will be done.

Have fun getting ready for Christmas!
