Anybody for tea????

It appears that smart phones are not smart enough to get on the aeroplane with the owner...

I had a wonderful time in the warm - it's always good to be home

when the phone with my pictures gets home I will post up a few pictures

.... in the meantime some stitching I finished just before I left ....

All these stitchery blocks are finished now.....

"Kelly"

I have been stitching this lovely selection of tea cups for a while...

"Audrey"

I have some blue and white fabrics... so I am thinking of using those and to put these all together into a table topper....

"Katie"

The pattern is from Crabapple Hill and is called Tea Party....

"Mary Lou"

I love that each tea cup set has a pretty name too....

"Charlotte"

I have so enjoyed doing these.. they are so pretty and I know I will do a few of them again sometime

HERE are the other 7 shown previously

These all make me think of tea.. and someone I would love to have a cup of tea with sent me a parcel the other day... is Joy - Joy is an Australian living in Arabia and recently was back in Aus, sadly down south and too far for us to get together but she so sweetly sent me a parcel of treasures.... 


thanks Joy... they are going to be great fun to play with....

Righto, Gotto Go..... lots of other stitching traced out to do.....

Those blocks are so pretty. Damm smart phones, just proves again that they are not as smart as they pretend to be. Does this mean you will be on Instagram now? hugs

Looks like someone will need to come up with a new app to keep phones and owners together!
