Tea & Leaf Tuesday ....



Here we are again...

I can't believe it's been a whole week since the Brambly Hedge "Winter" cup was used for that lovely M&S "Winter Spiced" tea!

It's been a really hectic week, taken up with hospital visiting...

...finishing off textile pieces for another couple of magazine articles...

...AND sorting out a veritable MOUND of music for choir tonight.

Of course, that's exactly when the printer decides to play up isn't it?!!!

Never mind....it's all done...(apart from the writing of the articles :-o )...

...and I can now sit down with an orient flavoured Japanese Sencha....

...in one of the beautiful little tea-tasting bowls given to me by my Bloke for Christmas :-)



It doesn't look much when dry, but after steeping you can see all the full leaves and flower heads in it.

It is delicate and delicious.

On my leaf this time....

....I have placed a little sketch.

I have another little book on the go...

...getting filled-up with "little houses" that will (eventually) get turned into stitched and/or stuffed pieces.

This was done from a photo I took whilst living in Brittany....

...where they have such beautiful little houses....

(a lot of which have been captured and are sitting on my hard-drive or cd's!)





..if I can get my writing out of the way soon....I can begin stitching this one by the weekend....

...I'll enjoy that...
