Crafty Mom Weekend 6.0

The 6th annual Crafty Mom Weekend on the Oregon Coast is now history. Twelve moms, big beach house, lots of fiber and paper crafting, food, and chocolate. Perfect!

We had 2 great sunsets, Friday, and Sunday.

And a gorgeous Saturday in-between.


And on Monday morning, it snowed!



That was magical. I’d never been at the beach for snow before. It made driving home a bit more exciting, but it was so beautiful.

I started three new projects, and worked on an ancient one. And had more that I didn’t get to! I don’t have a single finished object to show you, though. My first project was to knit up some bulky black wool to make a small bag as a background for needle felting. The bag isn’t sewn up, but here’s the needle felting.


This was really easy and fun! Carole gave me needle felting supplies for Christmas, and this was the first time I tried it. It was pretty quick, and I like the way it looks.

More on the other projects later in the week. I’m playing catch up with real life!
