Teapots and Quilts



Spring is due in March but it is still cold enough to REALLY enjoy a hot cup of tea.

 As my regular followers probably know I READ A LOT.  I almost always have a book handy.....  So when I saw this teapot available on ETSY I thought how much I would love to have it.  Unfortunately it is a big pricey for me but I do love it.  They also have a single cup style that is a bit more in my price range.  I wish I liked it as much as the first one. We shall have to see.  But meanwhile here are the two teapots I am talking about.  If you want to learn more about them and the seller click on the picture and it will take you to the sale page...........

The Poetry Books Teapot

As February draws to a close I continue to be amazed at how fast time flies.  Must be having a LOT of fun as the saying goes.

This past week I started a new quilt project.  It is a Block of the Month style, ,(this one actually has 3 blocks a month.)  Because I am on the continuing mission to use up my stash of fabric this is a perfect one.   It will be comprised of 30 squares and I am making them "scrappy" to use up my existing fabric but they will have the one common denominator.....  a cream colored fabric I had bought a lot of awhile ago and never used. And various blues and reds.

Here are the first three blocks that I finished this past week.  Now I have to wait a few weeks before the next pattern arrives!   If you think this is something that might interest you, you can  check it out on Craftsy... (and, no, I am not getting any payment for mentioning this here.)  See below for the link for Craftsy.  (It is a relatively inexpensive project. (if you use fabrics from your stash!!!)  Just $2 USD a month for 10 months.  You will get the pattern for three blocks each month.





Here is a link.........   Simple Traditions BOM on Craftsy..........    And if you decide to do this.... you can join the facebook group to get lots of fun inspiration.        Simple Traditions Facebook Group.   You will have to join the group to read it but it has been worth it so far!!!

And here is a picture of a few of the bulbs coming up in one of my garden areas.  That means Spring MUST be near.........  And YES, I think that hole in upper right part of picture leads to the "home" of the resident chipmunk.  LOL


I am joining with the following Tea Parties and blog parties.

  These may not be available every week so check to be sure.

Hope you will visit them too.
