Time for Tea Swap

I have recieved my Time for Tea swap, all the way from Ohio in the US. Thankyou Eileen so much!
She made this gorgeous table runner and tea pot cosy. beautiful applique work and perfect hand quilting.


These oh so cute biscut cutters, the lovley teapot card and some coffee beans! Eileen also sent some tea but Australian customs confiscated that....


A closer look at the teapots and cups on the runner and cosy. Stunning fabric choices!

Wonderful tea time goodies you've received! Love the uniqueness of each pot! 8-)
Great time fun with the fire truck for the kiddies! The best ever, especially for little boys!
Paint job bloopers... OOPS! 8-)
Happy stitchings!

What lovely goodies! Bummer they confiscated the tea though...bit odd too; I've taken tea in and out of the country before.

Oh wow you certainly hit the jackpot with this beautiful runner. Shame about the tea, makes me wonder if what I sent will be removed from the parcel.

Too bad about the tea! I wonder why they too the tea and left the coffee? Eileen made you some lovely teapots and stitched all that steam. The fabrics she used for the pretty pots are beautiful.

Beca the runner Eileen sent you is just beautiful!

Eileen said...

Yes.. I'm so mad about that tea. I even had them check it for me at the post office to make sure it would go through and they said "no problem".
I know you are on your fun Quilty Weekend with your Mum.. hope you have lots of fun!

What lovely things Eileen has made. Shame about the tea. We have a programme in the UK about Australian Customs and the ingenuity of some smugglers.

It is good that your bees are still uninfected by the mite which is killing off some hives.

Beautiful work-womanship- you must be so pleased with the swap. :-)
