Hello dear Reader. Today I was in Wethersfield, CT. I had the pleasure of doing a talk and workshop for the Charter Oak Chapter guild of craftswomen. They were all so enthusiastic and I felt so welcome. Here they are posing with the first cutting of the day. We all enjoyed a pot-luck lunch and got back to work.
They meet in the basement of this charming Chapel.
Sandra, the Chairman, brought some of her rabbit themed craftwork. She explained that the image of this leaping rabbit is based the earliest image of a rabbit with a basket of eggs.
This was a group who had a great skill set, having done cutting before. A handful of these ladies preferred to cut on glass, instead of the self-healing cutting matt.
Above are some eggs that were made for a previous event, as table favors. LOVED them! The dish that they are displayed in, is a terra-cotta pot saucer. How clever is that?
Everyone is focused.
They were so sweet to send these tulips home with me. Just what my mantel needed. Thank you for a wonderful time, Charter Oak Chapter crafters!
