it’s party time!

9 Feb

i’m almost ready (this means i’m awake…still no face, no clothes, bed head etc) to party! 6 times a year, a group of 14 friends from my area get together just to catch up. we are paired up in 2’s or 3’s (i’m a 2) so my partner and i are hosting next month. it’s deon’s turn to make the plan and she wants to do a “high tea”

obviously, deon is more high faluting that i am since i didn’t even know what a high tea was! but i’m pretty easily led and got into the spirit right quick. usually by the time we are actually hosting our party, we have a plan for the next one.

so about a year ago, i found Betz White’s website and ordered one of her cup of joe patterns. it’s a pin cushion that looks like a cup of joe. get it? my purpose of ordering it was so that i could smallerize it and make tiny pin cushions to use as invitations to our high tea.

so i’ve spent about a year fiddling around with this. i learned to make i-cord and made ALOT of it. i used up an entire skein of yarn just making i-cord. and i went shopping for used wool sweaters and felted them up.

and since i doubt any of the girls will check my blog before the party (now just 30 minutes away…i’ve GOT to get dressed!) i’ll share some pix with you!
