This is Thearica's Tea Time CQI Round Robin block that I have been working on for the past few days in sunny Florida, just resting up for a couple of weeks before the holiday rush. The block arrived with Carolyn's gorgeous work already completed under the tea pot - an embroidered tablecloth with the two sweetest napkins. Cathy made the steam drifting out of the tea cup, the hanging tea-bag and a candy sitting in the crinkly wrapper. She also added the crocheted party hat with all the trimmings. Cathy also added a pretty rambling SR rose vine. Above is the block with Carolyn's Cathy's and my work.
I embellished the top right tea cup with beaded bunches of grapes, gold vine embroidery and silk ribbon leaves.
I also chose to do the teapot with various stitches, and beads.
