Tea and stitching.

I've felt the urge to stitch for the first time in ages, hooray perhaps I've got my mojo back it's been long enough! I think sometimes when you feel a bit low the things you need to do to get you out of a rut seem to be the last things you want to do.
Vintage teapots, cups and saucers I love them and the tea that comes out of them. So I got out an old teapot that I love the shape of and started sketching, choosing, cutting and stitching. I also dug out an old frame that I forgot I had until I found it. As I used things I already had it was a free project too, lovely.

I'm going to hang it in the kitchen, I spend a lot of time in there (out of choice) it's my little sanctuary, I'm really pleased with it and I enjoyed making it. 
I've got to sort myself out before the christmas rush starts or I'll be in big trouble.

Where have I been ?

I can't believe I wrote my last post on the 16th of July and we are already at the 8th of August, I should apologise but I have been so busy on the allotment that I feel the break can be justified, well just about any way.
I don't think I have shared any full allotment pictures so here they are kindly taken by another gardener, who is very handy with a camera.
Sweetcorn, peas and beans.

Giant sun flowers.

Strawberries, sprouts in the background, there are also some late potatoes in there too.

Pumpkin, called baby bear.

The courgettes are taking over the world.

french beans.


I hope everyone is having a lovely summer break, hopefully I will have some more sewing to show soon.
