blog meet up

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Carissa was in town last weekend visiting her friend, Anna, so the three of us had the lovely chance to get together to enjoy dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Café Habana, and to visit a local pottery painting/glass fusing/mosaic making/beading store for craft night. There was lots of great conversation about libraries, blogs, quilting and food! Best of all, I got to see my most favorite quilt of Carissa's (now Anna's) in person.

I'm pretty sure Carissa has a few before pictures of our projects, but in the meantime here are the afters. Carissa made these two glass fused ornaments and put my eyes in jeopardy with her crazy glass clipping tool.








(the group effort star)


I went the plain, boring route and painted the inside and outside of a giant soup mug with an interesting glaze.
