Today's Class ~

Howdy Folks!
Hoping your Saturday has been a good one so far :)
mine has been wonderful!
we had our little Punch Needle class here today ~
l-r are Margaret, Pat, Robin, Jonette,
Nancy (barely visible 'cept for her beautiful red hair)
Debra & Joan...

hard at work...

looking good!

(there's miss Nancy!)

busy hands...

Jonette concentrating...

they even helped me celebrate my birthday with gifts ~
hand-knitted hand-warmers, a handcrafted bracelet,
herbal soap & hand salve and lavender wand
a jar candle and home-baked lemon/rosemary scones....

then they brought in a beautiful carrot cake & sang to me....really?
(I was so not expecting that!)
it was sooooo good , & no, there is none left.

we chatted, punched, un-punched & then the 'girls' mastered it...
(I knew they would...I have total confidence in them)

...tea, a warm fire, friends & needlework
(and sweets to munch on)
couldn't ask for a better day ~
Thanks for coming out & joining me today!
