Tea for Two

So sorry this is late publishing. It was scheduled to go live, but failed to do so.  Maybe it was a nasty April Fool's joke.


Although today is April Fool’s Day, it is no joke that we are kicking off our Tea for Two Blog Hop this morning.  Thank you so much to Madame Samm who blogs at Sew We Stitch for coming up with another wonderful hop.  Thank you as well to Cori who creates the most amazing designs for us to stitch.

My take on this design included a multitude of techniques – applique, free motion quilting, embroidery and Brazilian embroidery.

Now......please grab your cup of tea and join the rest of the participants in this hop.  I am sure you will be inspired by what you will see.

Mary, that is phenomenal! Every time I zoom in on the photo of the finished piece I see another detail I had not seen before. I can't imagine how many hours you put into that. Simply gorgeous!!
