Mad Tea Party AND Needle Felting Class Part 2

Hello all!

Well, yesterday's party was wonderful!  The ladies in my meetup group are just beautiful inside and out, and it was a pleasure teaching them how to make these cute little latte art needle felted pin cushions.

In honor of the mad tea party theme I wore a fascinator that I got at St James Tea Room

Here is a final photo of the tea party setup

I LOVE these blooming flower tea bombs.  
I got them on Amazon and I need to see if there is a tea shop in town that sells them.

A tea party would not be complete without french macaroons.  These are from L'Amour Baking Co.  
A french bakery that just opened up a few weeks ago in the village and I must say - they are amazing! 
Flavors are pistachio, lemon meringue, coconut, coffee, lavender, and neapolitan. 
A little tip - if you go into their bakery and like them on Facebook while you're there, they will give you a free macaroon.

Luna and her nephew working away 

And in between the instruction I worked on this pin cushion.  Still not done yet - I'm going to add felted roses and leaves.

I'm totally bummed that I didn't take photos of everyone with their completed pin cushions but we just got lost in conversation!

Thank you for reading!  Until next time -
