Sewing my brains out! :)


I like to think of my "stash" as clever planning on my part!...yeah...that's right-- clever planning. (My hubby should be so proud.)

Stuck close to home for nearly two weeks as the national capitol came to a stand still...I've lived at my machine.

Since i'm inside anyways...well...i might as well make things that the family NEEDS. Which explains the first tea cozy... I love to entertain with tea parties. I made a pattern out of some old muslin and pieced out of my small pieces stash...a little embroidery and add a few buttons!

Somewhere in blog land i had noticed this little cottage tea cozy...so i made one of those too...It's pretty large for the biggest of my tea pots.

Along with the cozies...i've pieced full size quilt top, made a messenger bag w matching change purse for a swap and some really cute reverse applique coasters....more on that later... all this cozy talk...i need some tea!

Later sweet ladies!

Tea cozies are exactly what I have been working on this week! Mine was not as elaborate as yours! I have seen the cottage shaped one somewhere also ~ you've done a great job! Did you have a pattern for the first cozy or just make it up? I love that you used up some small pieces for it! I was wanting to make a crazy quilt type with some embroidery stitches. There are so many sizes of tea pots that I have been putting it off. But you have inspired me to just start and see where it goes!
Thanks for showing the results of your two weeks efforts! They are terrific!

Why thank you dear Lady Farmer, great minds must think alike :)

I did make up the pattern..i sized it to a particular tea pot...(a small one)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Shelia,
Love the projects you showed and can't wait to see more. I'm so glad your electricity didn't go off. It's so much fun to use the stashes up on fun projects. I hope ya get some relief soon on all the snow.
Keep Stitchen'
