A Wonderful Class!

A full house in the shop yesterday for Nancy's
 Burlap Wreath & Herbal Salve class!

Nancy, Heather, Jonette & Gail listening intently to Nancy's herbal expertise ~

 She talked about all of the herbs that we used in the healing salve, 
...and the history of the herbs as well ~

Nancy melted the base for the salve in the crockpot and as it melted, 
we then moved onto the wreath class...

great job Nancy!

 Nancy had prepared all of the supplies ahead of time for us
and brought her wreath model for us to see...


Robin, Jane & Pat
wrestling with their burlap...
I must confess it was a little tricky at first, 
but patient teacher Nancy assured us all we could do this!

"is this right?....how did she do it? halp!!!"

slowly, with many trials false-starts, 
...our wreaths came together....

Heather, Sharon & Gail

Nita, Flea & Pat making their burlap wreaths ~
 talented hands...
always busy with something to do ~

Jane's beautiful hands ....
 of course we had to be fortified,
so there was plenty of food ~

Thank you girls, for the treats!!!
Nancy brought along some drieds from her gardens for us to adorn our wreaths with ~

beautiful basket!
 Sweet Jane posing with the finished wreath ~

Hi Jane!
 and equally-as-sweet Jonette with hers ~

Hi Jonette!
my Thanks to all of you for coming to this class, it is always so fun to be with you all ~
and special Thanks to dear friend Nancy...xoxoxo

the next class is on January 18th and is the Holly Vine Wool Applique mat class that I'll be teaching ~
you can see the project model and more info by clicking on my 'classes' link on my sidebar.

I am hoping to add another sampler to EBAY this evening, 
 ~ in the meantime the one that I have up now is ending soon :)

Enjoy this C O L D Sunday my friends,
and those in the path of the storms, my warm thoughts are with you all ~

* Blessed be *

These are so pretty! While I love my little cabin the woods, it is far from kindred spirits! However, I hope hope hope to come to the Christmas open house!

Jonette said...

Enjoyed the class so much! Great to learn new skills, spend time with a wonderful group of creative women and eat good food. Thank you Lori for the hospitality and the oh so sweet card and gifts. Looking forward to the next class.

Your wreath class looks like a big success with beautiful wreaths. I was tickled to find a copy of your book in Attic Heirlooms booth over the weekend. I am enjoying reading through it, what to stitch first?
Happy Thanksgiving.

What a treat it was to be part of the wreath class, yesterday!! Your hospitality, Nancy's patient instruction, and the positive energy of all those friendly ladies made it a very special event!! As always, it was so nice to see the sweet critters, too.
Thanks so much for your gift!

What fun Lori! I wish I could have set in on the burlap wreath making. I just bought me the supplies to make one. Never have done it before, hope I can pull if off!
