Today is Tuesday, and I haven’t sewn much lately. I had my two college kids home, and we had a lot of fun family time. In my mailbox this weekend was this delightful “tea house” and “tea swap” tag from Stephanie; she made these for each of the “Time for Tea” swap participants…thank you Stephanie!
I just finished the final touches on my tea swap items and will be mailing soon…I know this is a quilt blog, but I thought I’d share my favorite tea cups from my little collection. These belonged to my husband’s grandmother who loved lovely things…and they come from Germany, France, and Japan. I probably should have photographed them in an elegant setting on the dining table rather than on my cutting board–oh well!
And finally, here are a few blocks from another quilt I did a few years ago…I remember working on it during the 2006 Winter Olympics. The quilt was from Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns…it was a block of the month quilt that I did through the Christmas Goose quilt shop. My favorite blocks were the Dresden Plate block and the Grandmother’s Flower Garden blocks; since making this quilt I’ve had it on my list to make quilts with those blocks!
