Tea Time!

It's always tea time in Wonderland.


And it was tea time all day today in Maryland -- I think I drank at least 10 cups of tea all by myself given that it was rainy and cold outside...perfect weather for tea and for stitching...

I'm getting closer to finishing...the major stressful parts are over...the parts where I wasn't quite confident that I could make the Mad Hatter or Alice...I have just a couple of more motifs to complete.


And then I'll sit back and study the block...and add beads and a few extra stitches wherever the block says they should go...

I'm getting very close now...not too much longer...


P.S. The entire block is 8" square. That means those little bitty cups are only about 1/4" tall.

Susan, I have the biggest "Cheshire Cat" grin on my face after looking at today's posting. How wonderful. Your details are fabulous.

What an impressive array of teeny tiny tea time goodies you have created! It sounds like last week's weather here has made it eastward. Thanks for the 8" reminder; your photos made me think it was larger. You are doing a most splendid job!

Lisa said...

Looking good! The addition of the tea cups and desserts on the tea tables really gives life to this piece!

It looks great Susan. You have done much while I didn't had a look at your blog. Love the tings on the table and the mad hatter, fantastic !! The whole scenery looks só real!! I thought that the blog was much bigger.The photos on my screen are always that big :) How is it possible that you have put so much on only 8"square.
A needle artist, that is what you are!!

Please may I come to tea? Your cakes look delicious. You have got so much detail into them and they must also be teeny tiny.

Your blog is a "wonderland" of beading delight. I have so enjoyed my very first visit here - I will so be coming back!

This block is enchanting. The tea party is delightful and I can't wait to see what is coming up next. It is truly fabulous inspiring work.

This is so incredible, I can't image how much skill, patience, time and love has gone into making this quilt. I'm finding it both inspiring and a little daunting as I know I could never produce something like this. It's just gorgeous, fabulous, fantastic...
