A Rainy Day Project
Yesterday, a day of warmth, sunshine and a little crocheting outside.
Today, cool, pouring rain, and tea!
I've been making things with tea bags again.
The texture, color and strength of these little papers make them so fun to work with.
For this project, I cut pieces of the tea bag paper to the size of a tea bag before use.
Then using little muslin scraps I had, I secured a piece to the back of one side with my sewing machine, so that it would be easier to add hand embroidery.
Using free hand or a stamp, add what ever design you'd like to the front, add the back tea bag paper and sew around again with your machine.
I left the top part open to add some dried lavender, then sewed up the opening.
This is my new little tea pot I bought at a tea and spice store near my home.
They have so many interesting mixes of loose leaf tea, it's hard to decide what to get!
Here, you will notice I am using bagged tea.
With the weather being rainy this morning I was in the mood for the
Organic Spicy Ginger by Tazo. Have you tried it?
The hydrangea is one that I cut from a "container" hydrangea I have.
I've been wanting to dry some, but I'll need to wait, as it's still a little early to cut them.
Something about the light, or lack of it this morning had me grabbing my camera to capture the moment.
That's what has me inspired today.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Wayne and I are watching Vegas Vacation as I type (again - clearly we need a life as this is the 3rd time we've watched it this year! Ha!) and he asked how you were enjoying your new city. I told him you were taking lots of beautiful photos around your new home! Haha! It's raining out right now. I am drinking a cup of tea and catching up on blogs.
Hope your kitties are enjoying their new home too!

I hope you're settling in well to your new home, and that you have added lots of new favourite places to go - such an exciting time!
