Pretty Pin Cushion

I  belong to a really fun group on line that makes quilts and guilty type gifts.

   This weeks project was a Tea Cup Pin Cushion.  Since I have a shop full of them the only hard part was deciding which one to use.  That is pretty much why I showed the RoseDale cup and saucer on this weeks edition of Tea Cup Tuesday.  I have several in the shop so figured it would be a good choice.  I visited my craft room and found what I needed to make it.  And so here it is.

To stuff the ball I started with a piece of 0000 (4 ought) steel wool (very fine.)  I put a piece of stuffing in first, then the steel wool and finally added stuffing and stuffing until it was how I wanted it.  I used the hot glue gun to hold it in place, added the trim and then the little flowers.  And I also used hot glue to hold the cup in place. 

I may make  more now that I know it isn't that had.  Just need patience.

First Tea Cup Tuesday in July

A new month! And another Teacup Tuesday!

This week I am showing you a cup and saucer that I have in my shop.  Actually I have several of this pattern and even some plates to match.  The lady I bought them from sold me a lot of similar items.  She loved pink roses and so it didn't seem to matter the pattern as long as there were pink roses in the design.  Maybe in a future week I will show more of them.
This cup and saucer is a Bavarian one, porcelain, not Bone China.  
It is called Rosedale

 And here is a plate to go with the cup and saucer.

And here is the mark 

Be sure to check back in a day or two as I will have something to show you concerning this particular cup and saucer.

Meanwhile Thanks for visiting my site today.......
