"My days here at Folly Bloom are fuelled by tea and lots of it. It’s habit forming , it’s comforting, it’s warming and it’s classic UK behaviour and I love it."
As a tea drinker myself, it made me smile and gave me an idea for a theme for my swap package. You see a wee while ago the lovely Kristy of Quiet Play drew my attention to some fab, free paper pieced teacup and saucer patterns.
I couldn't think of anything more appropriate, so set to work making a couple of teacups. I then turned one into a pincushion and the other into a needlecase.
I must admit that after they were sent, I started worrying as to whether I should've chosen more subtle fabrics, but all in all I'm pretty pleased how well they turned out.
Throw in some teabags, chocolate and pretty pins and I reckon you've got a pretty cute wee swap package.
