More Tea?

Having had such fun making the last tea cup I constructed another one! Making a few subtle changes so it was slightly less wonky...

The message along the top reads;

'Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high'

If I was at all good at felting I would have liked to make tiny strands of ivy to climb delicately up the walls of the cup.

p.s. Merry Christmas!

Time for Tea

I found a tutorial for a paper teacup the other day on pinterest. And, as I was on a paper creating roll I set about making one.
I didn't particularly follow the template or instructions; so my teacup is slightly wonky looking.
With its slightly crooked handle, wonky sides, and uneven bottom, it is quite charmingly rustic.
Carefully cutting out the letters for the words 'Time for Tea' was perhaps the trickiest part of all. Small letters like those were just designed to fly across the kitchen table at the slightest bit of breeze!

Just a Little Bit of Origami

I have been experimenting with origami today. The folding is very therapeutic and I'd never before realised quite how much fun it was!

I successfully created a star, a dress and lots of little boats (the boats are my favourite!)

The boats are made from a mixture of music sheets and book pages. They have teeny tiny flags and sit quite elegantly on their little sticks.
