On the Cuff workshop

What did Maddie do this weekend?

She helped out all weekend! She was exhausted.
Diana Frey and I completed another workshop, and it was so much fun.

Here is the "Wonder Woman" shot, with all the ladies modeling their beautiful cuffs they completed. Everyone made one, or more, each day.
Diana and I were thrilled that everyone finished their projects both days.

Here are a few close ups of some of the completed hinged cuff bracelets.
Sorry ladies, I don't know whose these are, but they are awesome!

This is the handout we included at each of their stations, giving instructions to take home.
Don't you love that skeleton with the bling?

And here is the kit I teased you with earlier. Diana and I made these from scratch, it was a blast. They are heavy cotton, cut out with plastic on the inside. We stamped them, then sewed them. I used my new machine, the electric one I LOVE. Diana brought some beautiful fabrics, and satin ribbon, and we sewed vintage skeletons from the Alameda antique show, to the front. Too darn cute, huh?

And of course candy was inside as well, for that necessary midday break!

Here's Lady Di at work instructing on Saturday. Great smile Diana!

And here I am on Sunday, with a silly look on my face for some reason! Good to see they are taking notes! Way to go ladies, you did great. We are so proud of all of you.

Here is the lovely group shot. You can almost see Gwynnie and Marlene peeking out back there. Thanks again Susan, Brenda (from San Diego area), Gwynnie, Marlene, Sara, Jackie, Tricia, Jennifer (from Las Vegas area), Carrie, Mari, Pat, Christina and Julie!
Thank you to many returning for another workshop from the dynamic duo!
We truly appreciate it, and loved having every single one of you in class.

The next workshop was announced in the class, and many signed up.
I'll post about it tomorrow.
I will tease you with crowns, bling and fun! The dates are February 26-27.

Hope to see you next time!
