Ahhh...Refreshing, Relaxing, Retreating to Red Wing...

It's been a really long time since I had "girl time" or even just time to goof around and do my own thing. Well, this weekend I had the chance to spend three long, relaxing days with 10 other girls at a giant Victorian house in Red Wing, MN crafting, chatting, sleeping, doing yoga and eating great food. What more can a girl ask for?

Trish from Crafty Planet put together the instructions to make these adorable slippers from Craft Zine and I had so much fun making mine (although I wasn't paying attention and had to rip them apart about 4 times). I varied the pattern slightly, in that I didn't turn the soles once I sewed them together, and I lined the entire inside, not just the sole. My favorite part is the fabric-covered buttons, which I've never used before.

I'm back now, and back to reality. At least the weather is warming up, and the No Coast Craft-o-rama '07 plans are beginning to formulate. It feels good!
