Tea Party

So I was meant to post this on Monday, but I got all caught up in the Bundle making, I completely forgot!


I love Mothers Day. Gives me an excuse to make my Mom some more crap :-) She loves it really, I'm sure.


My main "gift" to her (although my sister and I sure benefited too!) was a traditional English afternoon tea party... cucumber sandwiches and quiche aplenty!


It was a lovely day, we chatted, played board games, and drank tea till it came out our ears.

Not entirely sure what half of these things were, but they were delicious!

These were quite possibly the largest strawberries I have ever seen.

I also made her this little teapot mat/mug rug/pot holder. I used a layer of cotton batting, and a layer of insulbright in the middle, so it should be nice and protective.

I love this block. Its from Lee's tutorial, Hexing Around. I was going to square it up, but then I fancied the challenge of binding a hexagon... (FYI, its not as hard as it first seems!).


For Paula, I made this brush roll. She's just started a painting class, so I thought it might be useful to keep them all together.

I didn't use a pattern for this, nor did I have a paintbrush I could test the height on, so I guesstimated with knitting needles as best I could and hoped it would turn out alright. Isn't the teapot fabric cute? Perfect for Moms!
