February 5 in 5

After demonstrating how to make doily dresses and greeting cards and gift tags in the library DIY class last week, I took a few minutes to walk around and snap photos of the 21 ladies as they worked. As I scrolled through the photos to find five to share for this month's 5 in 5 (hosted by Sandi at itchifingers), I was drawn to these photos of hands at work.

I really like how these photos reveal so much about the class: there were women of various ages in attendance, some like to scatter everything out while others keep their supplies all tidy, some needed coffee close at hand while others kept their phone in easy reach, and it was lots of FUN!

What a lovely idea for 5in5! It looks a great class and I like your observations. It always fascinates me how everyone can start with the same idea and materials and end with such different results. How nice that you run this in a library, thank you for joining in Melissa.

What a great idea, and it does say so much about what was going on in your class!

Yes: I noticed the phones because we were remarking on the phones out on the table at knitting club last night. It's so easy now to check up on a new technique. This is a really clever way to record your class.
