High Tea in Hayward

My book club is the most fabulous group of women you could ever hope to call your friends. On our recent retreat, we had a Jane Austen weekend. This included reviews of six of Austen's books and a delectable high tea. Here's a short video taken with my phone camera, with apologies for the quality of the video:

And here are some still photos---note the salmon and caviar tidbits; they were out of this world! The weekend was arranged by the two gals in the first photo. I cannot thank them enough for all their hard work and their good friendship. We are truly blessed!

All I did was read, eat, and knit one measly washcloth. Yarn: Louet Euroflax Originals
Pattern: Feather and Fan Washcloth by Theresa Gaffey, from the book, "Knitter's Stash: Favorite Patterns from America’s Yarn Shops."
Needles: #3 straights.
Comments: I loved knitting this washcloth during our weekend retreat!

It sounds ideal, what a lovely way to spend your time. The tea looks scrumptious!

Your lacy washcloth is the perfect souvenir to take home from a girl's weekend. So pretty!

I'm glad 'all' you did was knit, eat, and visit - that is a good thing to do at least once a week, at the very least. I am a tea-er and your photos and video are delightful to behold! So glad to see this. Thanks for sharing.
