"Crafternoon" photos

Crafts are an important part of the culture around here. The Wife and her little clan of crafters get together on alternating weeks and have a "knitting circle" called Crafternoon. Most of the crafts folks are doing involve leather and beads, and there is a group gift project that lots of folks are working on. I've tried to make the photos so that details of this gift aren't given away.


So, the first photo is just the state of the living room during crafternoons -- notice the cheese popcorn, and the oolong tea set. Classic.


The second picture is our friend working on a snazzy stick-constructed bead loom.















Third is a picture of another friend of ours, and oft-commenter on the blog, working on a new-fangled bead loom.





This last picture shows the incredible work our friend does -- he's been working on this deerskin bag for over a year, a little at a time. I'll have to get some photos of it when he's finished, it's just amazing.

Enjoy the excuses to hang out with your friends,

Bp

And boy do we get some crafter's pumped out at Crafternoon!

I am pleased (as always) to be associated with such a fine group of talented folks. Even if one of them is totally OLD!

HEhehehe!!

Tate said...

shall we talk about your shiny bruised ass

Katye said...

Only someone so OLD would take advantage of me in my bruised, weakened, helpless state.

MONSTER!

Man, I want to make stuff now. Got to come up with something to craft first. Flies are fun, but I'm looking for other stuff.

rider said...

I didnt mean anything mean by that comment its just the word, 'crafternoon", it still makes me laugh-I dont know why! But I will teach it to my little girl...

Tate said...

LOL no I didnt think you meant anything mean, It is often met with barely held back laughter when i speak of it at work, and i think the name is funny too.
Really if i was pissed i would have said so, i am not known for being subtle about that kind of stuff
