Weekend of Making


This weekend was the much anticipated “Baguette Weekend Getaway Art Making Extravaganza”!  We went up north to Kat’s cabin, with an itinerary and supplies, a little food and drink.  We squeezed as much activity as possible into a little over 48 hours.  I had to leave Saturday afternoon, so the others had another WHOLE day…I wonder what they did?????

First off, Kat had canvases for us to paint.  I do not profess to be a painter….be warned.  But we had an assignment from our hostess, and didn’t want to disappoint her with inaction.  Here is my painting….

Next, we doodled on fabric and proceeded to embroider these small canvases throughout the weekend…..

Assembling them together,  I was surprised to see the color theme…..

We were focused, but enjoyed camaraderie….working around a table or sitting area all together.   The time flew by, lots of laughing, joking, singing and talking.  I arrived home refreshed and energized, with lots of ideas.
