Fabric, Tea & Trash?


Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! I received these wonderful fabrics as a gift from the talented Australian quilt designer, Lynette Anderson! Right now, I am hoarding and drooling on my stash of "Scandinavian Christmas" but soon I hope to come up with a pattern worthy of these beautiful fabrics.

I adore the entire line and I think it totally suits me... from the sweet little folk illustrations to the neutral colour range. My favourites are the teeny stitched hearts and the cross-stitched snowflakes and who can't resist the Winter Toadstools! I encourage you all to hop on over to Lynette's Blog :o)

Here are a few TEAish photos for you to enjoy... I am still enjoying this Teacup mug rug made by Sylvie that I received in a swap a while back, and these beautiful handmade lavender-filled acorns and strawberries and sweet teatime coaster made by the lovely Sonia of Cozy Memories.


Here are some of my favourite Tea-for-One sets in my collection! And I just love stamping these pretty scallop stickers from PaperPeddler!


I rescued this pretty little quilted block from my friend Janet's trash can! I thought it would make a sweet mug rug so I finished it with pink plaid binding, some embroidery and a cupcake tag. One quilter's trash is definitely another quilter's treasure!


Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

  4. Cute lavender little bags. It's nice when a swap goes nicely, isn't it? I've had a couple of bad experiences and stopped altogether - too much disappointment.
