As sad as this looks this is my Tuesday Treasure.  The bird sat on the handle of a tea pot, how cute.  It belonged to my great aunt who passed away last year at age 100.  I used to play with it at her home when I was a wee one she had so many wonderful things to play with.  A few years ago mum gave it to me but its worn out and falling apart..  I cant crochet to fix it or make a new one so its in a bag kept safe and a treasured memory of my childhood.  Sad some of the stuff we keep really.

Sampler Stitchery

Sampler Stitchery finally done.  Dam this pic is sideways!  Cant see the colours of the threads either.  Guess thats why im not a photographer.

Quilt Group Challange Tea Towel/Apron

Just before school holiday breakup our quilt group had a challange.  We were given an envelope containing 3 random tea bags.  Our challange was to use the tea to inspire an apron or tea towel creation.  Heres the pics of what the came up with.  We had to drink one tea, give one to a friend and leave one with our item.  Some of these have been donated for sale at our quilt show later this year.
