April Crafternoon

The last couple of days the weather has been lovely. Sunny and in the 20's (Celsius) and allergy inducing, of course but I'm not complaining. Today it is pouring rain and gloomy but it's cozy inside the house where I am knitting and we are booking our last flight for our trip to Europe in a few weeks. Consider it our late honeymoon.

Due to our Ferrari laptop's (yes, it IS what you think it is) power cord pooping out on us I was unable to post about last week's craft day, which I hosted in our humble South Minneapolis home. A few months ago a friend and I decided to start crafting together and to invite other like minded people that we knew. Four months later it has turned out to be a regular group of gals who crochet, knit, fold origami, and cross stitch. We welcome all types of crafters!That's Carrie and her incredible star shaped afghan. I love it and have been inspired to work on my crochet skills so that I can make one of these too. And of course there can't be crafting without snacks.Now Mr. T and I are heading out in the rain for some groceries. April showers bring May flowers. What do May flowers bring? Pilgrims!

That star afghan is superhero-worthy. It drizzled a little today here. Maybe the rain will hit us overnight. Fingers crossed. That dang Ferrari has it out for you. The Ford Focus of laptops would give you less hassle.

That same afghan (I saw it on Ravelry) inspired me to want to learn crochet! I love it!

Craft groups are so much fun, I'm glad yours is becoming an established group- enjoy!

Hope you got some good travel deals. Europe---lucky you!
