sharing a cup of tea in the play date cafe :) [pdcc #24]


This week we have a celebrity guest and sponsor at the play date cafe - Kristen Powers!  If you've read my earlier posts you already know I'm a fan of Kristen's work, so it was a real treat to work with an image she designed especially for the play date cafe this week.  Mona chose some beautiful colours - plum, lavender and cream - which worked beautifully with the teacup design.


So out came the sewing machine again and I spent an enjoyable evening listening to Dr Who on the tv (it was the third time of 'watching' so I knew what was happening!) and sewing this piece together.


[sorry, not the best photo, I think my camera is dying]
The quote came via a google search and is by Sir Arthur Pinero; it just made me smile and think 'how true' as there's something very comforting about a cup of tea, and it's often shared with friends, and with friends there is always hope, even in the darkest of times!


Have fun with these colours, and don't forget to visit the other designers to see their creations.  Lisa Somerville is our featured designer this week so head over to the cafe to read how she started stamping :)

This is lovely Sarah. I really like what you do with your sewing machine, in fact you inspire me to go out and purchase one, not that I would know where to start, but I may purchase a small one for my art. Thanks for the inspiration Sarah as always. Tracy x
