Wonderful Wednesday - November Sew/Craft Friend-zy

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  This week, I'm here to report on November's Sew/Craft Friend-zy.  

People came and went at various times, but...

Here are the highlights...

Tiffany was presented with her REAL 50th Birthday gift:


I modeled how to wear it as a shawl:


Carol worked on creating some gifts:


Lisa planned to start out the morning with an ornament project: 


Tiffany demonstrated use of the cutting machine:


Tiffany and I took a selfie with her new shawl-turned-scarf, so Lisa decided to photo-bomb the picture:

Kristen and her tablemates worked on scrapbooking:



There was also a production line for making Art Bowls:


Crafters, old...


... And young alike, worked on decorating the bowls:


Another crafter was responsible for shaping the bowls.  Over bowls.  Then the waiting begins:

Her next project will be these curling iron holders:


BEAUTIFUL, Denise!!  1 down, 19 to go:


With photos taken, I was ready to follow my sock's advise:


You KNEW that I wasn't REALLY done with photos, didn't you?!

Tiffany busied herself making circles:


The knitter in me HAD to have a picture of Denise's Wolkig Cowl that she started with yarn she bought at SAFF last week:


Her knitting style intrigued me:


Just LOOK at that super soft baby alpaca yarn and that gorgeous wooden yarn bowl:


The m&m station was set up behind my machine:


Carol completed a flat iron holder:
