Time with Friends.


I'm playing catch up. This is my longest post ever, I'm sure. A few weeks ago I spent the weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake with 6 wonderful friends!
Sandy
Maija
Amy
Natalea
Vivian
and Jenny (no blog, but has a beautiful flickr site and a great etsy shop!
(and Jenny must have hid a lot -- I don't have pics of her! )

(photos by me and everyone above)

Our theme was "birds"
This is the house we rented:

Sandy made it so beautiful!

We shopped and were silly:
(Maija and me)
(me, Nat and Sandy)
(M is for mouse loving Maija)
(Vivian and Amy)
We made each other lots of mementos:
(i made the zipper pouch)
(Natalea made these necklaces for us -- mine is the "colours outside the lines")
(Nat made these peat pots too)
(Amy gave us little kits so we could make these nest pins!)

And we made awesome cool stuff (thank you Viv and Jenny for the tutorials):(Jenny taught us how to make these fabulous mobiles!)

(Vivian taught us how to needle felt)
(Amy made the bluebird)
(Amy made the big one and Jenny made the little one)
And we drew names for our trades (this is what I got from Nat -- it's already up in my kitchen!)
Thanks for beautiful memories girls! I miss you!

I look back on it with a big smile on my face! I only wish it didn't go by so fast!

Hugs!
