Here are some more treasures from my dresser. My mum is a very talented woman and everything she attempts turns out beautiful. These are some of her China painted treasures. She made me the teapot and sugar bowl for my birthday or christmas, can't remember exactly, but I have always been too scared to use them in case they break or chip. So they just get to look lovely.
The christening cup was also painted by her and being blue it was destined to be mine! Next to the cup is the most gorgeous miniature tea set we bought when we went to Sydney a few years ago. I just love them and they are small enough to fit on the palm of your hand. They have dainty little painting on them too.
My redwork cushion for Maree's swap has left and is on its way to Western Australia to Kate.
I will post a pic once she gets it next week.
cheers for now.
ps thanks for the positive feedback on my doily runner. I hope to baste it and start quilting this weekend!
