Tea Time and triml

I love to work in 'collections' and my website is split mostly into rooms. However working with collections is fine but I never finish what I have planned as like a butterfly, flit off to another project. This collection is not yet finished but have made a restart on gift bags. These are ideal for popping in a pretty mug, maybe with a box of delicious tea bags such as Twinings Rose, come complete with a mug rug in the same theme. As usual this is fabric from my stash and can only make a limited number but happy with the way they turned out.

Tea Time Gift Set

Mug rug in the same theme

Time mug rugs thought these would be good for men, do not make much for men as more a girly girl

Finally some burlap and patchwork ribbon trim, a metre per card. 5cms wide perfect for so many things. Only problem with burlap is the smell this does go if hung on a washing line for a time in the fresh air, and worth it for that shabby chic look.

Still working on plenty of ideas but this next week could be slow as having the kitchen ripped out finally. Hope will all be done by Friday, do not like workmen in the house and feel my home is no longer mine, plus Shiloh gets stroppy as he will be blocked from certain rooms. So in between constant cups of tea or coffee and a petulant dog going to be a joyful week.

Will leave you with a picture to give you a laugh and to show how stupid some dogs can be, he goes in behind the Camellia by the shed but then cannot turn round or get out the other side until Lee moves a very heavy lawn roller. The funny thing is he never makes a sound and then we realise he is missing. When someone goes to the front door now that is a different matter and all hell breaks lose.
