Richmond Hill Potters' Guild - Tea Room Duty

As part of my membership with the Richmond Hill Potters' Guild,
I am required to work in the Burr House Craft Gallery
or the Burr House Tea Room a certain number of times a year.

It was my turn to be in the Tea Room over the weekend.

The Guild grows some nice flowers, perfect for cutting
and placing into one of our handmade vases; one per table.

Tea is really tea AND scones.

the last resort

A pot of tea, 2 homemade scones, one slice of zucchini bread,
2 pats of butter, and 2 small pots of jam.
All for $4.

The atmosphere is very calm in this 1824 heritage building.

Visitors told me this was the old Richmond Hill blacksmith's house.

There are many original features and it's good it's still being used.

The Craft Gallery showcases guild members' work.

There are two guilds working here:
the weaver's guild and the potters' guild.

three of my paintings plus much more

I haven't spent much time in the pottery studio over the summer so I don't have ceramic work in the gallery, yet. I did manage to drop off a few paintings and a few Mirrors of Positive Affirmation.

It's a good start.

Very odd and random question. But the Cross stitch sampler that you have posted, is there anyway you can find out the name of this pattern? I know someone that has a halfway completed work of this and is trying to find who makes it so she can get the pattern and finish it..if not thanks for your time!
