Think you caught a misspelling in my header today? Haha! Nope . . . you've over-steeped your bounds if you've taken on more than one body should for a tea party! LOL!
There was *no* time for stitching this week as I prepared for a tea party for the girls and adult staff at the Alabama Baptist Children's Home in Decatur on Saturday! I made bookmark favors . . .
And teapot favors . . .
Isn't that darling? And when I say made favors, I mean I made a BUNCH of favors!
Thirty-two, in all, which isn't too terrible of a crowd, unless you're cutting out all of those teapots from cardstock!
And of course, what's a tea party without creme cheese mints?!
These were a big hit!
I spent Saturday morning making scones and tea sandwiches for the group. Evey and Ellie were my helpers . . .
LOL! Actually, Ellie's a big help and likes to be a 'cheffer'.
In case you're wondering, that's a chef who bakes. *grin*
I didn't have to set a table for this tea party. Normally I love to do that, but at least I knew I couldn't do that on top of all the prep work! I had four sweet ladies take on the task of tea table hostess and they all set up beautiful tables!
Ellie helped co-hostess her mommy's table. Isn't it pretty?!
Everyone did such a great job! It was a fun afternoon . . .
And I think that the little girls enjoyed it because it was a party and they had crayons and necklaces and chapstick in their favors. But I think the older girls (and even the staff ladies) learned that tea parties aren't just for littles . . . they are wonderful opportunities for sweet fellowship and times of refreshing. I think we may have even made some tea converts!
All that to share that my stash report is unchanged this week . . .
Worth it. I did finish up my lil' gingerbread man ornament, and so finished up my two ornaments for February. Yay!
This afternoon, if I don't take a nap, I'll be working on basting these pretty little pieces to their templates.
That's good stuff for a slow stitching Sunday afternoon!
Linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts. I hope you're able to enjoy a beautiful Sunday, regardless of your weather!
