"Lakefront Property" for our annual summer craft retreat. Once again we were allowed to take over the air conditioned Craft Coop with our fabric and sewing machines. Brenda worked on pillow cases while Melissa and I made a campfire! I'd been dying to make this forever using this tutorial. It was a lot fussier than I thought it would be but of course I always think everything will just take 10 minutes. We even added a little carved heart and initials detail to one of our logs. I am all about imaginative play and this will go into my toy and kid stash. Later we all made fabric garbage bags for our cars and fooled around with another Modern Textiles pattern for lined zippered pouches. More on those later. We had a great time together, celebrated our Christmas in July as well as Melissa's daughter's birthday and Brenda fed us very well. Every year we girls try to have a summer get together at Brenda's and a winter get together here at our house. As usual we had way more ideas than we had time for so we'll be busy at the next reunion. I am so lucky to call these women my friends!
