Craft Night Success

pincushions, originally uploaded by ariel quilts.

This weekend was great fun! Friday evening was our Ladies Fall "Fun-due" fondue night at church. I serve on the committee and was given the task of coming up with the evening's craft.

I stewed for awhile on what would be crafty fun, yet "grown up" enough for ladies to enjoy. I had some good suggestions from friends and family, but decided on an easy felt flower brooch pattern from mmmcrafts, thanks to an inspiring blog post by Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew. My friend Jamie then suggested we encorporate Allison's teacup pincushions at each table as giveaways.

The evening was so fun...full of chocolate, cheese, goodies, and great fellowship. It's so good for women to enjoy each other's company and grow spiritually together! (and eat, laugh, and create at the same time!!)

So, take my advice and make some time to get together with the girls this month. Whether you shop, watch a movie, or just have a play date with the kiddos, good friendship is great for the soul.

Sounds like a great time. I love the craft you chose and the table decorations!

Those turned out adorable! What a great idea for the tables...I will definitely be using that one!

I couldn't agree more. I am so happy to have discovered quilting at a relatively young age - it has brought so many incredible women into my life (after many years of girlfriend drought when I was studying/working as a geologist!). I value my quilting friendships highly and appreciate all of the life-experience and solid advice I get from the 'mature' gals I hang with. Glad you had such a fun evening!
