i had the best time.
my sisters and i spent
a whole entire weekend together.
crafting.
eating yummy home-cooked food.
watching movies.
laughing.
it was the best.
i'm not sure any of us
were really ready to come
back to reality.
& real life.

...i made owls.
started a quilt for linessa
from her old dress scraps.
& started a cable knit scarf.
cable knitting is new for me. :)
