I am furiously working to finish making this "Time for Tea" table topper -
Appliqué Pattern by Darlene Zimmerman & Rachel Shelburne,
but it won't be done by this Tuesday's KISS Quilt Guild "Tea Party Picnic".
This little limoges box was the inspiration for the theme of my quilt guild's annual picnic
...a "Tea Party Picnic"
Every member has been asked to bring a tea cup with them,
but they have to put it down at a different place from where
they are going to be seated.
Everyone will take home a 'new to them' tea cup,
after using it at the party!
Those of you who have followed my blog for years know how
much I LOVE my TEA!!
I collect teapots & teacups & will be bringing most of my
collection to use as centerpieces on each table
where members will be seated.
EDIT TO ADD FOR KITTY:
Here is a photo of the paper drip catchers for teapots.
and a LINK to where you can buy them!
Thanks for mentioning them, Kitty!
I only had to borrow a few from friends,
to make sure I had enough large sized ones to use....
I didn't think the Christmas ones would work too well.
This darling little thatched roof one,
with the bluebird looking at his reflection,
is my newest aquisition!
Isn't he TOO cute?!
This delicate treasure belongs to my friend Nicole &
I'm almost afraid to take it,
for fear of it getting damaged in transit.
I'm so enamoured of its graceful lines.
My committee members & I have been busy
making little fabric bowls to hold sweeteners
on each table.
Here is a link to the video that I used to make the fabric bowls, shown below,
These are the measurements I used to get this little size:
I hope I remember to bring my camera
so that I can share some photos of the picnic next week!
This is the big end-of-the-year "Show & Tell"
where everyone brings their projects
that they learned to make in the mini groups
which are held all year long.
We will also sign up to take some new mini group
classes for the upcoming season.
Just wait till you see THOSE gorgeous projects...
can we say "EXCITED!!"
Thanks for stopping by "The Gazebo House" today.
Wish we could share a cup of tea together!
