Coffee or Tea?

This is a photo of some of the blocks that I've made lately.  I invented a cream and sugar block and a coffee pot block.  It's been fun.  I've been sewing a bit less lately.  That's life, I guess.  I think that I got somewhat tired.  I've been reading my book, Liberated Quiltmaking II, and some of the things in there are so helpful. I especially liked the section about liberated triangles.  It was really a help for making the teacups that are angled slightly on the bottoms.  I have a few more of the blocks cut out, and I hope to have time and energy to join the pieces together today. Then comes the challenge of composing a quilt with all of the blocks and free-pieced letters! And I went to the Target store yesterday afternoon.  The stores are so jammed right before the Super Bowl football game.  But a really nice saleslady gave me a good box, so hopefully, I'll be able to ship the sweater that I knitted.

Roz, your cups and mugs and pots and creamers are looking great! When you have the energy for it you're going to have a lot of fun putting this all together. :- )

Isn't it funny how there seem to be boxes cluttering up the place until you want one to ship something? I just send everything Priority, now, because then I don't have to find a box!

I like the coffee tea cups a lot- gives me an idea....(sound of wheels turning)

The coffee pot is great. I love LQII. It has got to be one of the best (apart from the baskets).

I love this Roz! So clever, are you going to do a tutorial? I think I'd make one of these...I love it, and by the way, I know how you feel about sewing. I was in a bit of a funk a bit back there, and now...I'm Back!
