Trying a New Craft ~ Just For Fun :)

When the kiddos come to Grandma's and Grandpa's for a visit, it's never a dull moment.  It's like one big party all day long.  But when Little Sister goes down for a nap, it's time for the older girls to play.

On this last visit Elsie, Mommy, Aunt Heather & Grandma all went out and tried our hands at painting pottery one afternoon.  We had never done that before, and we had a great time ~ Lisa snapped this picture of Elsie & I looking like we're taking our pottery very seriously...but there really was much laughing and chatting going on!

After leaving our pieces to be fired, we went back about a week later to pick them up.  Lisa made the large mug and etched words into it, Elsie and I made pumpkins, and Heather made the three-toned blue creamer.  We had a lot of fun, and were very happy with our first time ceramic projects.

Here is Elsie handling hers with much care after getting it back from firing ~ because, "It's very breakable" (and she knows from personal experience how hard Grandma's porcelain tiled kitchen floor is).

Definitely a craft that we'll enjoy again on another visit :)

I hope to get into the sewing room tomorrow and work on another block from the Quick Mystery BOM Runner.  Make sure you get your Block One done soon, the October Block will be out before you know it!

And check back on Monday, for an announcement of a fun blog hop I'll be participating in next week.  There'll be lots of fun, probably some silliness, and I'm sure there will be give aways!!!

Enjoy the day!
