Visiting Old Friends

I used to live in Marietta, GA where I was part of some wonderful fiber groups. One such group was "Friday Group" which met on guessed it....fridays. We stitched, ate goodies, showed off our latest projects and did a lot of laughing.
This month I was in Atlanta visiting my daughter which also coincided with a meeting. Loyce who hosted the meeting loves Halloween and goes wild with decorations. She served us a yummy lunch at this amazing table with a goodie bag on each place. Lots of Halloween decorations everywhere you looked.
Mary Ellen was wearing a huge necklace, earrings and spider pin...
along with crazy socks. Like she said...only a short time each year for wearing this fun stuff.
Barbara Butler who was one of our most talented artists has always created her own fabric. This is one of her pieces which is wonderful in person.
Barbara showed us a bowl she purchased in an antique store ...made entirely of spoons...This is looking down into the middle of the bowl.
This is the outside of the was truly fantastic.
And a finished piece from Mary Ellen ...made with ethnic fabric from her Little Quilts shop. Mary Ellen was part of the 3 person team who owned the wonderful shop and pattern company - Little Quilts.
She also knitted this lap throw using a variety of yarns...
really cool.
And a redwork piece which I loved.
 A group shot at lunch...
and onto Loyce's studio where she is the creator of the most unique and fun cards...
such an amazing assortment of supplies
and work space....It was a wonderful day with old friends...I had such happy feelings that stayed with me for days...
