Creative Females meeting

Our Monday night meeting at Maren's was our first get together of 2010 and there were lots of new projects going on. Maren made us quiche, triple chocolate cookies and date bars...all delicious! Maren had attended a local Kaffe Fassett workshop and was working on a new quilt top using many of his fabics...we all loved how she put it together.
Great colors and fabrics...sorry it's a bit fuzzy...taken at night.

And Katie is going strong on a new rug using up leftover wool strips...close up...

And here's most of the rug in progress...
and here is Katie with her first hand felted hat!
Penny has completed 11 of her circle series!
And these fun crocheted rocks were made by Jeanette, our Yarn Tagger and knitter.
I started work on these two houses...
And now, after our week of rain, a beautiful sunshiney day at the beach for my morning walk.
There is one lone pelican in the bunch of seagulls below.
And every morning I drive my son to his bus stop atop our mountains on this road. It drops off a
1000 feet in places and I have to keep my eyes on the road and look out for rabbits and deer and try not to look at the ocean too much. I enjoy seeing the sun rise and seeing the whole coast for miles at the start of the day. Then back home for my cup of tea!

Sounds so inspiring! Did you notice how the colors in the quilt and the rug are very similar? I love them both--probably because I love Kaffe Fasset's colors. the rug also reminds me some of Klimt.

What a wonderful and diverse group.
I have only recently found your blog and love the wonderful colours you use and your sense of whimsy. Particulary taken with that wonderful owl in your side bar!

You are so lucky to have a circle of women near to gather with! All of you must have so much fun and the amazing creative talent of all of you... The crochet rocks are fun and of course your hooked houses will be absolutely adorable.The Kaffe Fasset fabric is delicious. That ocean view...gorgeous! <3

How fun! What diversity! I happened upon your blog (great color BTW) because I check in on Jude's from time to time to see what she is up to.
