Crafty Tuesdays

During the school year, my friend Caroline hosts Crafty Tuesdays most weeks at her home.  I am going to miss those Tuesdays now that school is almost out.

Most times I do more chatting than crafting, because it's nice to have friends to discuss important topics!    It's amazing what problems you can solve when you sew with friends.

While others knit, embroider, bead or hand stitch quilt bindings, I usually will work on my long term EPP project.  I hope to make a quilt out of these one day.

I have picked up knitting, but I am super slow.  I do like its portability and few necessary supplies.  I am still practicing the knit stitch while making a scarf.  It's pretty mindless which is what I like about this project.

Books and magazines also play an important part in our gatherings.

Do you regularly get together and craft with friends?
Happy stitching,


  1. No, I don't get together regularly with a craft group....maybe when i retire! I love the portability of knitting too! I'm hoping to get the front of my sweater (we call them jumpers in Australia!!!) finished this week. Then I can start on the sleeves....

  2. I'm glad you're enjoying our weekly gatherings. I know for sure that I would have long lost my sanity without them.

  3. Sounds like a good group. I used to have scrapbooking and quilting time with friends when my kids were little but haven't done anything like that now in a long long time.

  4. How I would love a weekly group like this. How many of you are there?
