Tea anyone?


Finally the colour is seeping back into my cheeks.Yeeeaaaah I am on the mend again thanks to all your lovely comments and the drinking of lots of cups
                                                          of herbal

Isn't it weird how our tastes change? I have always been sort of a coffee person. I don't know how or why, something has changed inside this Dutch bird. I just can't help myself I buy tons of teabags in every flavour you can imagine and then I don't drink them all.
Have I finally lost my mind.... I am hoarding teabags!



 I have to confess it isn't the only thing I hoard, I hoard fabrics too I have loads of  it. I just can't walk by a fabric store and not buy something
and this is just what I bought in one trip.

Now I guess you may say that is OK as long as you make something out of it
but I am afraid I don't. The fabrics are gathering dust and I am outgrowing my studio very fast. I can't see myself in a bigger studio yet so I have decided to make some more 
Framed Popjes Cushions

A little while back I did a live online Popjes on Fabric painting class
with Amy, unfortunately there is no recording of the class. I know some of you were disappointed not being able to watch it. Well rest assured I am now in the middle of making a new video for you, showing you step by step on how to make one of these little darlings.

In the mean time why don't you hop over to Amy's blog she has loads of free stuff going!

This is my first visit to your blog. Your little people are so adorable. I found you through your Strathmore Online Workshop page. I had to laugh, because I horde both tea bags and fabric! Ha! I'd love to see your video. Blessings,
