This was Bobbi and Judy's idea, and we had our 2nd meeting last Thursday at Judy's. 1st meeting was at Bobbi's, where we explored the wonders of needle felting!!! More on that in another post.
When we meet, we have tea, of course! The next meeting is at my house, and I have alot to live up to- after experiencing the wonderful teas at Bobbi's and Judy's houses!!!
Last week, our group played at making greeting cards. Both Judy and Bobbi are experts at it - Bobbi has the Cricut (she just told me there is a sale on them at Michael's, drool, drool,- but I can't justify spending that $ right now.....sigh)
Julie and I did the best we could- in the unfamiliar waters of cardmaking!
I had an uncle and a cousin with birthdays coming up, so I made cards for them. It forced me to dig out and use up some of the endless amounts of ephemera I have amassed, from online swaps, and my own collecting. Judy and Bobbi were good enough to share from their enticing caches!!!
First, check out Judy's studio!!! To die for - and soooo organized!!!! Far different from my very disorganized basement studio.......
A stamper's paradise- and endless drawers, organized and neatly labelled!
Bobbi, sorting her teapots and cups for the adorable cards she is making for Julie's shop- Julieanna
Judy at her desk
We break for lunch and tea

A sumptuous spread
Scones, clotted cream and spreads, sandwiches cut in teapot shapes
Out to the screened in porch to a lovely table, with scrumptious broccoli soup waiting for us
Judy made everyone a lovely floral bookmark, placed by our plates.
How cute is this little sandwich? - good too!!!
"MY" teacup, that I SOOO wanted to stick in my purse!!!
Desserts- scones, and chocolate cookies, and clotted cream and lemon spread....yummmmmmmm
A lovely centerpiece- I have this very same tea angel at home!!!
Back to finishing our cards.....................................
A fun time - next month's meeting, at my house (however will I meet the established level of teaworthiness????)
we will be making upcycled china pedestals(which takes no time at all!) and crazy quilting.
Drop by Patty and Kim for a list of other tea lovers. Drop back again next Tuesday!!!!
