More "Tea Time" challenge

Our latest challenge was "Tea Time", and it's great to see how everybody rose to the occasion! And an occasion it certainly was! The ladies outdid themselves with a 'proper' tea, complete with dainty china and yummy food, both savoury and sweet. And everybody contributed to the challenge in a unique way, sewing and stitching.
This is Annette's stitchery "Come and share a pot of tea. My home is warm and my friendship free". Isn't the bear cute?!

Marg showing her lovely stitchery; it reads
"Come sit at my table,
with a cup of tea,
and home made biscuits
so happy we shall be."

Here's Annette's challenge contribution, a sweet teacup table topper, perfect with her pretty cups.

Sue made a table cloth with lots of cups and tea pots, with swirls of embroidered 'steam'. Sue did a great job with the applique.

Finally, Donna's contribution. The panels were given to Donna by her quilter friend, Christine, and were perfect for this challenge!

There will be more photos added next week, when we look forward to Sally and Andrea's challenges.
Also, see Lorraine's adorable coffee pot warmer in the previous post!
