teatime


"Chirp and Twitter, 'Tis time for Tea"
I just love that verse, don't you? Mary Kathryn surprised me this week- she sent this adorable pillow along with some tea-themed goodies for a sweet birthday/friendship gift. As an ardent tea-lover and huge fan of Tanya's designs, I know that Mary Kathryn knew I would love this package, and she was right. :) She also sent some yummy looking Celestial Seasonings tea bags, adorable Susan Branch fabric swatches, and a fun tea shop mystery, Death by Darjeeling by Linda Childs. Thank you so much, Mary Kathryn, you continue to bless me with your kind friendship.






Next up is the first of 3 Pif's which will be winging their way through the postal service in the next few days. This pinkeep and matching scissor fob is for the always elegant supermum, Hazel of Quietly Stitching. I loved making this for you, Hazel, and hope you enjoy it! I couldn't wait to surprise you so I hope you don't mind seeing a picture first!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. As for me, I'll be sipping on some tea, in between stitches ...
