Cup of tea?

This is the little project that distracted me, Ric Rac's Teeny Teapot pincushion. The most testing part of this design was the words "random design" for the embroidery, random is not my strong suit. I bought the pattern and felt ages ago but the small spout and handle pieces kept putting me off. As it turns out the construction was pretty straight forward.

Mine is a little wonky in places but I like it. Another addition to my pincushion collection.

Back to work tomorrow, so today I am trying to sew, play, watch movies, garden, cook, walk and pack as much into one day as possible!

Happy stitching,
Susan x

  11. I love your teapot, Susan. I've had that pattern sitting in my drawer for a long time too. Glad to hear the handle and spout aren't too hard. Perhaps this will encourage me to pull mine out!

  13. What a sweet little pincushion, Susan. And your embroidery is so pretty. I really wanted one of those pincushions but was a bit daunted and Jodie's and my mutual friend Annie Flowergarden gave me one for my birthday - lucky me.

  16. That teapot is so sweet. My niece saw it in a patchwork shop she visitd with me. She's only three and she just LOVED it. I hope you ticked everything off your list today. Your randomness is perfect. Well done.

  18. Random is second only to 'quilt as desired' in my book... to be avoided at all costs! Your 'random' embroidery is beautiful and I just can't see 'wonky' at all. That is one gorgeous tiny teapot. Hope you managed to do everything on your wish list today and that hasn't made you too tired to go to work tomorrow....;o) .....xxx

  24. Lovely to catch up on all your news Susan - we all get distracted from one thing to another, at times, so don't worry about that, especially with such a pretty result!
    Next time you get your nails done, ask for Shellac - it gives a great result, & needs to be treated very badly to chip off, plus it's dry when you walk out of the salon - I get it every time.
