We had a great day at Karen's today. She provided us with coffee, tea, and goodies to munch on.
Each of us seemed to be working on something different today. April was getting ready for a book mark making class at her church. Karen was working on cards. Pinky was working on her crochet rag rug and then April talked her into making a little monster book mark. She is holding it in the pic of her. Jan was working on a newly started beaded piece. Mary was making a couple of crochet dish cloths.
Today is Karen's husband, Don's, birthday and we all sang him Happy Birthday on his special day. He brought us up some pics of him and his band from the 60's...a pretty handsome fellow.

Check out April's bag of goodies. We were so busy we forgot to admire the gorgeous view of the Columbia river in the background, with Washington state across the way. All in all it was another fabulous day with the gals. We celebrated on a Monday for a change so we could have Valentines Day with our sweeties. You gals are my sweeties!
Thanks for the fun day and the Valentines! See you next week at Karen's.

We had a stamp carving workshop at Pink's on the Peninsula. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and created some marvelous stamps to be able to use in our work. Above is April diligently working.
These are two stamps Jan carved and also shows the tool we used to carve these. It is very easy to do, if you have ever considered trying it I hope you will.
Thanks for hosting us Pinky! I think everyone enjoyed this and some of us will be trying more carving.
Next week, PARTY TIME!!! a special Monday event.
I had more written down, but just realized Jan and I were posting at the same time, so went ahead and erased it.
This was a very fun project and stretched us a bit creatively...
As usual, just fun to see what everyone came up with. It might be fun to trade stamps and stamp some paper with each and return them...
Monday, we are all meeting in Astoria for Karen's birthday bash! Can't wait!!! She gets to pick where we go and where we get to eat lunch...fun!
