Lots of trees but no saucer on this one.
And here is a photo of almost all of them… somehow one got edged out of the photo!
I’m now busy listing these into my etsy shop, freezing peaches, making soup stock now that the weather has cooled, cleaning up my studio, trying to get everything back into my studio closet after my husband need to do a wiring project in there… it never ends!
Blue and white cups, ferns, variegated threads, trees and shrubs.
Just one more after this. These 2 are the classic design that you can make from my pattern. I am slowly listing them into my etsy shop.
They have tiny little sheep!
The cup and saucer have ducks and flowers.
And the second one with a herringbone hill.
I am not ready to think about winter yet, that’s for sure! Only fantasy winter.
In my not-art life, I am enjoying our first fall weather. The dahlias are thriving, the sedum are blooming and covered in bees, and the asters are starting to show some color. I hope everyone is safe from any hurricane weather.
By pure happenstance, this dahlia (which was simply labeled pink) is matching the hydrangea that I planted it next to!
First is Bluebell Cottage; or Harebell, which is what it says on the bottom of the saucer. But Bluebell sounds so much better.
And then Violet House-
It is pretty clear that someone in my area had a collection of violet-themed teacups. I found a number of them at 2 separate local fund-raising sales! Lucky me.
A castle with some topiary. A close-up-
And a hand for scale-
And here I am, sorting through all of my tea cup collection, looking for the ones that spark an idea.
I have pulled out all the tea cups. Let’s see what they become!
Here are the first 2-
Yes, one is quite a bit bigger than the other.
And a reminder- if you want to make your own pincushion, the pattern is here.
These 3 are designs that rely heavily on the cup. The snow scene can’t be made on a flower cup, the barn needs a special look- kind of country?-, and the night tiny world needs a dark cup. Searching for just the right cup is so much fun.
I’m behind on my posting. Between being sick and some rainy weather, I have a back up of photos to post.
I have collected a terrific selection of tea cups over the winter. Lots of variety to choose from in my box-o-cups!
I just had to make a snow scene before I finished this batch.
Now this last one had to get made because somehow I always end up with 13 and I’m superstitious… I know, crazy. So I had to make one more.
Okay, so that’s it for now.
I will be trying to get them all into my etsy shop in the next few days. Everything is now listed in the shop!
Also, a reminder- The Owl class is in 2 weeks. Come and join the fun!
