Crafternoon Tea

I have a friend who makes the cutest jewelry. You can see what she does by visiting her etsy shop, Button Willow Jewelry. Not long ago she asked if I would do a "craft night" with her. I was thrilled. I have wanted to do something like that for a while, and sometimes we need someone to help us move our ideas out of the thought bubble and into reality. It is actually going to be a "Craft Afternoon / Afternoon Tea". I am so excited about it. We are going to make wool flowers, and some simple earrings.

Some little sample flowers I have been working on.

I am using this book as a reference. It is a great little book.

The gallery of flowers is awesome. I do wish the instructions were a little more detailed. When I was learning to sew many many many years ago, I followed the pictures on the sewing patterns more than the written instructions. Now I am a little more patient, and do read the directions, but this book has mostly the written kind in a separate section from the gallery of photos, and might be challenging for a beginner.

Max is sad about his lack of apposable thumbs. No crafting for him. 

If you are a local friend and want to come, you are invited, just let me know you are coming. (This Saturday,

Katie, your crafternoon tea was some of the best fun I've ever had! Mercy saw my flowers and is begging me to take her to Bargain Barn to stock up on wool sweaters so she can give it a go. I hope you do this again- I promise I won't stay so late next time!

Thanks Tracy, you said you brought your pajamas. I thought you left pretty early! I had a lot of fun too.
