For a few months I have had a beautiful quote from Chaim Potok in my head
'come let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things'
I love this quote, I have it pinned to a board in my bedroom, torn from an old copy of flow magazine.
So I started drawing teapots... and once I started I found it very hard to stop. I could have drawn a lot more teapots than I could possibly sew!
But finally I have completed a tea time pattern
The pattern has four teapots in total, although one of them has not been stitched and is left for you to experiment with. It also includes a few teacups and some flower heads.
I love the way the hoop looks like a tea tray
we do get through an awful lot of tea in our house
Yorkshire Tea of course, as that's where I grew up. Sadly we have very soft water down here in Cornwall so it never tastes quite Yorkshire enough for me but still very nice tea.
We also love our green tea with lemon and mint tea ( I think they would go nicely in the Japanese teapot)
Are you a tea drinker or a coffee drinker?
Perhaps the sunflower pot could work for a coffee drinker
I hope you enjoy the pattern and I will get back to my tea drinking and prepping my final home ed child for her gcses next week!
I think we will both be very happy peeps after June the 9th when the exams are over and hopefully the sun will be shining and all the birthdays coming up.
The pattern is available in my Etsy shop as always
