Stitchy Tea Party!

We have wanted to have a stitch & bitch tea party forever and we finally made it happen! We were so excited we got to me Jackson aka Mafiosagrrl and Lisa aka A Cuppa Tea with Me in person! Jackson also brought her friend Jocelyn who was knitting a baby hat, which was really interesting to watch. We had the loveliest day filled with tiny sandwiches, scones, Devonshire cream, CUPCAKES galore and of course stitchin & bitchin! It was so nice to sit in the dining room on a sunny day with great company stitching up a storm :)

We had so much fun stitchin & bitchin!

Goody Bag Corner!

I hope we can make it into a monthly thing, how fun would that be?! Maybe a different theme each time...

There definitely needs to be a conference with all stitchy people from EFU(Embroidery Friends United), it would be amazing to meet all of you ladies and gentleman (Jamie & Bascom) in person!

I'm so jealous. I love the tea theme. I am in stitch group that meets about once a month, but never with tea and cup cakes. I am in Va. I'd love to come stitch with you guys one day.

Looks like ya'll had so much fun!

MafiosaGrrl said...

I had sooooo much fun. A huge thanks to you and Maureen for hosting. You totally spoiled us. I can't wait to get together again.

Thanks for making Josci feel so welcomed. She was a little nervous, but I managed to convince her to come by telling her what sweetie pies you guys were. She had a great time too.

We def. need to make it a regular thing.

Oh, and Lisa's right! You such a pretty gal. I love your style :)
