Tea Time pinkeep



Can't resist to show one of my finishes, as i mentioned yesterday i've been working on a few finishing. Wasn't able to work further today with it as the weather was sunny this afternoon so i've worked a bit more on the garden and then on the phone too. Chris friend Mels came here at midday not knowing he has to go to a birthday party. His father tried to call but get voice mail so he came over and he said our phone isn't working. And then Grace said she did called yesterday and also got the same response. I was in panicked as i don't have any idea how to work this out, having been used to Kees being around. Glad i was able to contact him just in time, as they are leaving for sea and then we can't call each for about 2 to 4 days.
It did take a while before finding the right phone numbers to call and also the connection to the helpdesk! In the end, before i got connected Kees call on my mobile to try another way, removing the plug for about ten seconds and then back. Oh yes, it did work afterward! Thanks God!!

This pinkeep is for the yahoo group SFE at ILCS. Actually i had hope i could find an appropriate fabric for the back when i went to town yesterday but they don't have such fabrics with cups. But i LOVE how this one turned out, do hope the one who will receive will like it too.

Barbara, your last comment made me smile!!! Me here thinks, whenever i came to visit yours you've been too busy and i do wonder how do you do it and would love to know how but never mention it. I do feel i am slow compare to some out there with there so many lovely finishes!

Mylene -

That is so cute. You have inspired me to do something similar, I have been wondering what I could make with the Tea pattern I have. Now I know. Thanks for the inspiration.

Sorry I have not visited in a while, I will try to do better.

I love the pinkeep and the fabric is just perfect for it. I'm biased because blue is my favorite color and I love tea. LOL
