As you may remember, Snowlady had invited Stan the Snowman to tea. He arrived amidst a flurry of snowflakes, and was invited into her cheery yellow kitchen. They stood watching the snowstorm through the large picture window, as the howling wind tossed clouds and snow along its currents. As the kettle began to whistle, the wind calmed, and the stars shone in the darkness. Snowlady placed two cups of tea on the table beneath the window.
"Ahh, " said Stan, and then began to sing," Tea for two.."
"And two for Tea," Snowlady sang.
"Me, for you," he boomed.
"And you for me!" Snowlady blushed as she looked at Stan, who was beaming, his smile wide, and his eyes dancing.
" Good," he nodded, "That's settled then."
This 5zie was created with navy cotton, onto which different fibers were added, covered with a layer of periwinkle organza, and quilted onto felt with a metallic varigated thread. A second layer of fibers was added to indicate snow, and sparkles were added for stars, and then covered with white tulle to give the impression of window screening. A window frame of yellow fabric was sewn onto the 'window', with recycled tea bags used below it as the table surface. A 't' tag was inserted into one of the tea bags and stitched in place. I cut felt into two cups and saucers and embroidered them onto the 5zie, adding white and brown 'steam' rising from each cup. The window treatment is tatted lace. I then added a little snowman charm.
It's been a rainy day today, following a rainy Saturday, and I have kept the damp and chill at bay with several hot cups of tea. I hope you are cozy and comfortable, wherever you may be.
Thanks for visiting.
