First Night of Craft Night

Tuesday night was our first try at Craft Night. I thought it would be a way for the gals to get together, work on projects, eat a bit and gab as much as we possibly can in a couple of hours. I was not disappointed with our first group effort.

Amy wields the button press
Watch out for Amy. She has tools and she knows how to use them!

You can't tell in this photo just how preggers Jessica is at this point.
Jessica very quietly crocheted a baby sweater for her youngest baby.

Ashley lets everyone know how she feels about her progress.
Ashely has just recently picked up her cross-stitch habit again. (I’m sorry Jon, I know it’s mostly my fault.)

Allis & Crystal diligently working on their projects.
Allis won the realistic crafter award of the night, she only brought enough stuff to get finished in one night. (The rest of us all thought we’d be farther along on our projects than we were by the end of the evening.) Crystal, our newbie stitcher, got off to a great start, even though she thought she’d be finished already.

Hallie started work on a couple of embroidered pillow cases and I continued work on my pieces for my cross-stitch purse box. (I’ve almost finished the second of four panels.) It was a fun night and I can’t wait for round two in a couple of weeks.

Lastly, here is Liza’s favorite new game.
Hobo baby rocks out.
She scoots the rocking chair up to the wall and rocks by pushing on the wall with her feet. She happily did it for about 20 minutes last night while I was cooking dinner. Also, see her one-sock action? She works very hard to get that one sock off. She doesn’t need both socks off, just the one. I don’t know why she does this, but it drives me crazy.

  1. Geof: You are correct. It would have been surprising. Next time we have Craft Night, we will make Jessica sing loudly during the whole event.

  2. I love this idea. I know enough crafty people that it’s something to try come summer… on top of the game night we were thinking of, and movie night, and and and

  3. That sounds like so much fun! I’ve only got half a million things I could work on during a craft night. 🙂 Hope you guys continue having fun at Craft Night!
