I spent the day yesterday doing one of the things I enjoy most in life . . . crafting. Here is what awaited each of us at our assigned seats. INDEED YUMMY stuff in that pie tin! And I didn’t even get my bag filled with more delectables in this picture.
Charlotte Lyons hosted and taught a fabulous class on making felt cottage houses. Here is one of her gorgeous master pieces.
Here’s mine . . . not nearly as fully decorated as Charlotte’s. But these cottages are a work in progress. You add to them here and there to your heart’s content. I’m loving my choice in chimney construction, for sure buttons are a girls best friend especially in the cream color family!!! Gosh I’m thinking I play it too safe with my choice in colors or lack there of! I should let loose and craft something in a wild saucy color pallet. Yeah I need a little sauciness added to my play it safe personality.
As if having the opportunity to meet and be taught by Charlotte Lyons wasn’t enough, we were served a delectable breakfast, lunch and snack by Charlotte’s good friend Suzanne who I just read is a former Vogue food editor and gourmet chef. Oh my can she bake and cook all the while keeping her vogues on the down low.
Oh wait, one more thing . . . I won this as a door prize! I was skipping with glee when my number was drawn for this piece! It’s hand made by Elizabeth Williams who sells her goodies on Etsy.
