Color Me Reckless

Craft Day Workings

Crochet, LifeLisa Seyfried

I think I've mentioned before that my friends and I get together for a craft day about once a month.  We all bring a project, open a bottle of wine, and spend the next few hours chatting and crafting. Craft Day Food - Color Me Reckless


I'm absolutely obsessed with my friend Anna's serving ware (is this a thing? I mean the chip bowl and the blue bakeware behind it).  So brightly colored and always filled with yummy food.  I'm convinced the goodness is because of the bowl. I won't lie, I totally copied her and registered for some of the same set for our wedding.

The weather this past weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Warm and sunny, such a nice change from the deary cold we've been having.  We opened up the windows and let that beautiful fresh air in.

Usually during our craft days, the women craft while the men play Xbox or do other manly things.  Not sure why it breaks down like this, as the men are fairly crafty themselves. I guess maybe it's a male bonding thing? This time, however, they made beer!

It seems that the only pictures I managed to take well were of the beer making process! So all I have to show for the craft projects part is a before picture of  my yarn...

...which didn't come out super great.  I snapped it in a hurry to get out the door, but at least you have an idea of my color palette for this project! It will eventually be a wedding blanket for a friend getting married this summer.  It's the exact opposite of the design I planned to do, and I love it. I'll do a picture wrap up of it here soon.

Do you craft with a group of friends?
