Care for some Tea?

Thanks for all the love for the spider! If you think your Christmas tree needs one, I highly encourage you to give it a try. Good directions. Very straightforward.

I got myself into the craft room earlier yesterday. I planned to sew something...and I know how sewing projects can turn into marathons when I get behind the pedal. In fact, the tutorial says the project will take about 45 minutes and it took me almost two hours. But don't be put off. I'm sure it will take most people much closer to 45 minutes. After all, I had to deal with a bobbin disaster right from the start.

Maggie--who has a birthday coming up--loves tea, lemon ginger to be specific and restaurants often don't carry it. In fact, they can't always find it in the grocery stores up there. So I am sending her an emergency stash and a carrier.

I love how this came out. I should make another one. (Two fat quarters will do more than one.) But around here, herbal tea isn't that weird. I could take it with me when we travel to England, though.

It's only been five days and the craft room looks like Michaels, AC Moore, and Joanne's exploded in there. I'm going to spend all of April cleaning up this mess, aren't I?

Thanks for the link. I always carry my own teabags. Too often places use really cheap, awful tea.
And then there are the places you use awful "bags" for decent tea.

Thanks

I keep meaning to make one of these for myself. I'm another picky tea drinker - pu-erh or ginger green tea. Real Chinese restaurants are the only place I can find tea I like. ;)

Craft Room Clean-Up sounds like an excellent theme for April. ;)

What a great idea for a tea lover! lol about your craft room. Hope it doesn't get too bad.

Nice carrier for the tea. I'm sure Maggie will like it.

We all can appreciate the messy craft area. It seems like you have to make a mess to create sometimes.

This is so much more fashionable than my Barry's Gold in a baggie that I take to business meetings. Thanks for sharing! You're doing awesome with craft month.

Oh, I love and need this. Now if my sewing machine and I were on speaking terms...

What a great idea! I am sure Maggie will love it! My craft closet looks like a disaster area anytime I try to finish anything. Don't feel bad. It's to be expected.

Oh Nikki. Another great project. I wish I drank tea. I love it. You must show us your craft room at the end of this marathon.

Next year, I think you should take a photo of the craft room every day during Craft Month, and do a time-lapse series. Cause this is happening again next year, right?

LOVE the tea wallet. Such a great idea.

What a cute teabag carrier! I don't drink tea or coffee but I can see this would be cool to have. (do they make an emergency Diet Coke carrier? LOL)

Love your spider...as much as one can love spiders that is. I wouldn't want to have an encounter with a wolf spider - no sirree. I did see a teenage tarantula out hiking a few years back though. Eek!

This is pretty, though it would not work for my Keurig tea ;-)
