Artsymama is hosting a global teaparty so in honour of the occasion, I give you [ once again ] my tea-shirt [ or is it a T-cosy? ]
It's after 11.30 pm so I'm downing one last cuppa and heading off to bed rather than grab the camera and buggerise around with a brand new photo of my teapot collection or something equally pertinent.
I'll leave you with a couple of quotes :
'Where there's tea, there's hope" ... Sir Arthur Pinero
"Tea. Earl Grey. Hot" Capt. Jean-Luc Picard, Star Date: 41697.9
in the immortal words of Noel Coward: "Wouldn't it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn't have tea?"
for those who might like to make their own tea-shirt, here it is out flat. It was made in 2 strands of vintage laceweight and I'd write you up the pattern but I can't remember for the life of me what size needles I used. If I work it out, I'll get back to you.
The pattern for my teaparty quilt appeared in the 2001 Australian Patchwork and Quilting Yearbook and again recently in one of those compilation-type editions they put out from time to time but I don't recall the name. I hadn't realised until last night that I hadn't photographed it [ pretty poor since it was finished in 2000 ] so that was rectified this morning.
