Since September is National Sewing Month,
I thought I would share with you some of my most recent projects.
Beth, author of the blog
held a Tea Swap earlier in the year.
I used my embroidery machine to make several items for Judith,
my swap partner, who has the blog
I made her a mug mat with a teapot on it, of course!
I monogrammed a hemstitched linen towel with their last name initial of "R".
I made her the little teabag holder, below, with her first name on it.
This is to hold a teabag & either a packet of sugar or artificial sweetener in your purse.
Its amazing how many times I visit some people who don't drink tea &
don't have any on hand to offer, either.
Below is a list of all the things that I included in her swap box:
Mighty Leaf tea & assorted others to try
Quilted Mug Mat for her teacup & some cookies
Ceramic treasure box with tea party top (holds chocolate)
R-L-C game for grandchildren
Teapot spout covers to catch drips
Magnetic Refrigerator list with Lavender Teapot
Matching Lavender Teapot notebook
Monogrammed hemstitched linen hand towel
Pansy coaster made on embroidery machine
Teabag & sweetener holder for purse with her name "Judith", made on embroidery machine
Hand stamped bookmark with butterflies...her favorite!
A Little Cup of Tea book
Shamrock cutter for scones
Thank goodness I didn't put in anything perishable,
as the Canadian postal service went on strike just as I mailed it &
she had to wait WEEKS for it to arrive!
We were BOTH very relieved when it finally got to her.
I held off showing you what I made, so as not to spoil the surprise.
This was a fun swap & I hope to join more of them soon.
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House & letting me share my stuff.
Its no fun unless you can share it with others!
