Crafts & Pie

This month I hosted my second Ladies Craft Night. Remember my goal to host one of these every couple of months? Well, I put a second one on the calendar and sent out a bunch of invitations. 
Since strawberries have just come into season here in the Pacific Northwest, I thought the craft night would be the perfect opportunity to make the Strawberry Pie that was posted over at Chicken Librarian. This pie did not disappoint! It was perfectly easy, super delicious, and absolutely one I will make again! I cheated on the shell and bought one pre-prepared, but I made my own whipped cream. So, I figured that balanced things out. I also picked up the strawberries from a local farmer. They were so ripe and juicy, I couldn't have asked for a better berry to put in this pie!

This month's craft was beaded bracelets. I thought it would be a simple enough project to work on while we chatted. It was nice to sit with everyone and string beads while we caught up on everything going on in our lives.

The table was filled with cups of coffee and tea and dishes upon dishes of different colored beads. I was amazed at how even though we all had the same colors of beads to choose from...we each ended up with very different patterns and styles. It was a great night! Unfortunately I did not get a picture of our completed projects. I will have to set that as a goal for our next craft night!
I definitely would encourage you to gather some friends and neighbors for a night of crafting. It really is an enjoyable way to spend an evening.
