I like my new teapot too, I haven't used it yet, I'm thinking I will break it in this weekend :o) I have a pretty good sized collection of Mary Engelbreit tea cups & saucers, (remind me to show you sometime, they're super cute!) and in cooler weather, those are the ones I use most often when my peeps pop in for a cuppa and a chit~chat, and I think this teapot will go with all those "Mary" cups really well. That was one of my
Quilting... well, I'm still a little nervous to get it started, I'm afraid once I put it on the machine and start the quilting process, I'm somehow going to jack it up and it'll be wrecked. So right now, even though it's not finished it's still "perfect". Ugh... what a dork. I don't have a quilting machine, just a regular sewing machine... but that'll work, right? I'm over thinking this, right?
I don't remember if I've shown you the completed top... here it is.
(sorry for the terrible photo & quicky sketch)
I'm totally open to ideas, so if you quilt wizards out there have more suggestions, please, by all means, speak up. I know I could just have this professionally quilted and leave well enough alone, but since this is my first quilt, I want to do the whole thing 100% myself. I may not do it again, or I might if I get good results.
Anyhoo, that's where I'm at... decisions, decisions...
I have some swapy-stitchy goodness to share soon too! I'm chomping at the bit!!
Hope you're having a terrific Thursday!
