Tea Swap.....the best came last..........

Well I was the last person to receive the Time for Tea swap (hiccup with the postage and lucky it went back to Bonnie) and I am sure the best was saved til last..........Bonnie Calamity Jane's Cottage was my swap aprtner and this is what she sent me........a table topper with teapots blankets stitch appliqued onto the backgrounds..............

"I'm a little teapot, short and stout, here is my handle, here is my spout"



some have fancy stitches decorating them also.........can't see it to well in the bottom left photo.........but they look wonderful


All the fancy writing was done by Bonnie on her machine............2 beautiful special tea towels for me..........my kitchen is blue and creamy yellow so just perfect............the bottom one is just so delicate...........


can you guess what this pretty card is?????

full of needles...........what a cool gift............Bonnie had some of these in her shop..........she is trying to find some more for me..........


and the final tea goodness.............fancy tea flavours and a tea notepad.............thanks heaps Bonnie I LOVE it all.............


Thanks also to Stephanie http://loftcreations.blogspot.com/ our Time for Tea hostess.............you would have seen these somewhere else by now as Steph sent out a tea pouch to all the girls in the swap...........what a huge task.............

thanks Stephanie.............


.........take care til next time.............
