The Tea Box

After many years of making boxes I am excited to announce that I am now the proud owner of a glass lidded tea box. This week I spent a very productive day with Oops-lah and I now have a box to store my tea selection.

Work from the Sewing Room.


It has taken me a bit more than 2 weeks but I have now managed to turn my deciduous tree into an evergreen tree by using Misty fuse and machine appliquéing the leaves onto the tree. I also added some birds and butterflies that were in a fabric that I purchased as I wanted to add some life into my tree. Now I can move onto constructing the outside borders.




I was interested to see on-line a famous Japanese quilter selling a book in the English language so I was very happy when Japanese Quilting piece by piece arrived in my post.


It contains 29 projects. 12 are bags, 3 quilts and some appliqué designs made into a cushion a small box and a thread tray.


The book is full of great photography.
  

102 pages of detailed instructions. It is currently on sale, so hop on over to the Interweave Store to find a copy.


Recently I purchased this Japanese made cotton voile from Bernina Craft Centre, Singapore and turned it into a kaftan top by lining it with a burgundy cotton voile.
