A most gorgeous workshop

DJ Pettit certainly put on the ritz for her workshop in Jacksonville, OR, last weekend. You be the judge:


This is what the room looked like and our work table when we came in. She had also prepared class kits in the utterly gorgeous little packages you see at the forefront. Below are some candid shots of the class and my new friends.

Part of the secret for a yummy book is to find luscious lace. Since the workshop was taking place in the back room of an antique store, finding lacey treasures was not so hard. Although one is always on the lookout for more finds, and if your closets are overflowing, think of me!

This book is not for sale as it is my prototype and contains images generously given to us by DJ. However, others are available. They will contain original paintings. Contact me by email: imagine.her@gmail.com
