A fantastic Friday!!!!

I got to spend most of the day,Friday, doing what I love - sharing and learning needle arts!!!
On the last Friday of each month our Bible study group has some type of demonstration/class and we bring our Freecycle items to swap. It has become great fun for all of us!
This month we focused on fibers-all kinds!
Gwen & I worked at tatting a little ,while she shared her memories of her greandmother tatting.

Shannon and Bekah talked crochet and baby hats~

Linda shared crochet patterns,inspiration and techniques.....the whole day was lots of fun!!!
When I got home I had the coolest surprise waiting for me in my mailbox!!!
I participated in an apron swap recently and mine arrived Friday!!!
If you can't tell from the picture- the sweet young lady that did this compiled pictures of my entire family...yes, grandkids too!!!...and designed the apron around them all!!!
I can't tell you how blessed I was---and still am- every time I look at it!!!
Thanks so much Laura Marie!!!!

It sounds like a great time, Autumn. What a great idea for your Bible study group to do that. I hope to do something like this with our coop classes next year.
