The first thing we did before the to-do list was posted was to show and share in the sewing studio. Kristin and the girls brought their aprons-in-progress for me to see and I was so thrilled with how they each made them so personalized with their own likes. Of course I showed off my aprons and my quilting projects too.
I thought we might have time to start the free motion stitching on the aprons (number 3 on the list) but we ran out of time.
They wanted to make charms for their ankle bracelets so we got started with that early Thursday morning so the charms would have time to set up hard. They selected and strung their beads and then the next day we attached the charms.
We had enough time to make memory wire bracelets too.
On Saturday more family came for dinner and I spent the day in the kitchen. I managed to get 2 food pictures. Edamame Salad and Stuffed tomatoes. Both were yum. We had 26 at the table and everyone enjoyed the get-together.
Everyone left Saturday night and I pretty much crashed all day Sunday.
Then Monday morning Kristin called to say they wanted to come back for a couple of hours. We managed to have a little Inktense on Fabric class and when I looked at this picture this morning, it looked like they each painted self portraits. Funny how that happens.
We didn't get to "take a break to wash windows" but Mark (brother) and Andy (nephew) did that Saturday. In other words, they came to play and I put them all to work.
We did pretty good with the list. I will tell you about number 6 in another post. We didn't make the peanut butter cookies and didn't get back to the sewing studio to free motion.
They stopped back by this morning on their way back home to Arizona. A good and fun time was had by all. I just wished they didn't live so far away. I'm thinking my SIL and I could really get into some fun stuff together.
