The Art of Craft - Sailor's Valentine

(Charlotte and Pam's examples for the class - so charming!)

Oh! I had the most wonderful time at French General on Saturday.

Charlotte Lyons and Pam Garrison are so lovely, warm, sweet, dear, kind - which I knew they would be from their blogs but they are even more so, if that's possible?! Exponentially adorable! It was such a pleasure to get to meet them.

And how fabulous to be in a room jam-packed with other artsy craftsy souls! BLISS! I was seated with six fun, uber creative, ladies and got to meet a few others while gazing (mouth agape) at the yumminess of crafty good stuff, that is French General. Holy moly! I apologize for brain freeze and middle aged brain and not being able to remember everyone's names. Hoping to meet you all again at another event at FG!

There is this wall of marvelous goodies that calls your name, Come Hither, gather me up! hahahhahaa ( Sorry, this is blurry! I didn't even realize it at the time - I was so giddy with excitement.) The other side has marvelous fabrics to make you want to hole up in your home and never leave, stitching into the wee hours.

The only thing lacking in the day was time. I was there for three and a half hours and it went by as if it were less than an hour! WOOOOOOOSH!

I only took a few photos. WAH! And sadly I didn't get one of Pam Garrison but I sure got one of dear Charlotte ... and me.


  1. Hi Sally,
    It looks like you had a very Happy Birthday! Love the photo of you and Pam - it's adorable. Are you a member of CHA? I have actually been working on getting my paperwork together to join them this week!

  2. It was faun day! Thanks for checking out my blog and hope to see you again at FG, I know I will be back next year!


  3. Look at you two! I have no idea who is who, Sally! (I don't get out much). Are you the super excited cute one in the glasses, or the super excited cute one without the glasses? LOL! Either way, you are adorable - and this looks like so much fun! Wish I could have too. :)) xox
