Sugar Bowl and Creamer

The tea set needed serving pieces... so here's a sugar bowl. That's some of my Alice in Wonderland fabric, fussy cut. Alice would have been on here but she was too tall...( hadn't sipped the shrinking-liquid yet)
And the cream pitcher. We like a lot of cream. The scrap was too small so I added in a little lime, and really, isn't lime almost always a good idea??
Maybe we'll want some dishes for a snack...
Here's a shot of the new dishes...
and one of the whole green set...
All patterns from SewPrecise software
Think about where your motivation comes from... what takes you from thinking "that might be fun" to actually making a block?
I credit SoScrappy http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/ link party with a new color each month for pushing me from the thinking about it to the actual making of it stage. Check out the other blocks being made with green at her link. I am also thankful for my other link party sites (see my links page) including the paper piecing going on today at http://quiltartdesigns.blogspot.com/

  11. Hi LeeAnna,
    This is turning into a great tea party!
    One thing I'd love to have is a Mad Hatters Tea Party!
    All those cups and saucers, teapots and things piled up on one table!
    Take care,
    Joanne

  12. The sugar bowl is perfect! Love the teapot too. I enjoy the blocks that represent specific things but right now I'm not inspired to make that sort of thing. I would have been ten years ago or so. I think it's important to recognize that our tastes can change over time.

  17. Love the whole set! I dare say your idea for "collecting" dishes is more fun (and less expensive) than collecting the real thing!

  18. Oh, how cute! And I'm always stuck in thinking something might be fun rather than making it because I'm not creative enough to make a block w/o a pattern of some sort!

  19. The sugar bowl is the best one yet! (I want a real life sugar bowl like that...)
    I'm getting a lot of enjoyment watching your tea sets unfold each week.
