I am so happy to see the lovely photos, & will look at all the blogs Charlotte. I wish I could have come. Alas, it wasn't puppies keeping me away but a torn tendon in my finger. I can be quite the clutz. Sigh. Hopefully next time! xo xo Cat ^..^


Looks like a wonderful time! I would love to attend should you do this again, and in the meantime if you think you might be selling some cottage kits, I would love to purchase one of those too.

Looks and sounds like a dream day, Charlotte. Oh, and did I just read cottage kits up there in Cerri's comments? That would be a most brilliant idea for those of us who live so far away... :)

Oh I hope you do plan another one Charlotte--I would love to attend. It looks like a beautiful afternoon!!


Hi Charlotte,
It looks as if it was a perfect day of sharing ...I almost signed up as I don't live far but since I'm really not a sewer...I chickened out...maybe next time! It sure looks like fun!
Take care, Laura


Wonderful and some great links you shared as well!
Thanks much for your generosity of spirit. Say, what's this KITS deal? lol.

What a lovely event. I can only imagine how many wonderful memories were made.


It was a delicious event! Thank you Charlotte for putting this together and am so looking forward to the next event! Here's a link to my post about the day

Warm Hugs,


Everything sounds and looks so wonderful Charlotte! And yummy too, oh boy! That has got to be the best way to have an event, small, intimate and cozy, with dear friends, new and old, wonderful food and a resident kitty kat purring at your side. Charming!

How divine Charlotte - and sweet little kitty curled up after the creative festivities, and celebration of friendship says it all. Ahhhh!
