TEA TIME! Wall-hanging on Ebay & RR Block Done

It’s too bad that with all the stitching I’ve been doing lately on tea-themed things, that I don’t like tea, LOL.   (I’ve explained THAT before a couple times).  But I love the ritual and accoutrements, and the genteelness of it all.

So, first of all, my Tea Time wallhanging is listed for auction on Ebay.  It has been donated to Crazy Quilting International (the online presence of the International Crazy Quilters Association) to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.  All proceeds from its (hopeful) sale, along with those from three other quilts listedby CQI, will be donated to Charity.

Check out my quilt on Ebay here.  OMG,  in creating this link, I just checked it out, and it already has 7 bids on it!!!!!!!!  Woo-hoo!!!!!!!

Yesterday I worked on Ritva’s block for the Tea Time II DYB (Do Your Own Block) Round Robin that I’m participating in at Crazy Quilting International.  


The design of the bunny in teacups is not mine; I adapted it from the pattern by the ever-so-talented Bumpkin.  Check out her cute Etsy shoppe, too!

I felted a chocolate-covered strawberry to match the one printed on the fabric, repeated the floral vine pattern on the left, added some trim, stitching, lace and other goodies.  I wanted to keep it light and light-hearted in feel.  Did I succeed?  Regardless, it sure was fun!
