And here's a sneak peak of Scrap Squad #6. Finally, all the units are done and I've begun piecing the blocks together. In fact nearly 20 of the 64 blocks are done. I'm trying for 10 blocks a day amongst all the other stuff I am doing this week.
One of the "other" things I am doing this week is preparing High Tea for my neighborhood tea group. Usually we meet in the morning for tea and a bit of food. We've been doing some alternative things recently including a Halloween party with hubbies, going to the symphony's Decorator House and a lunch out. I decided to do a High Tea so every one will be at my house on Wednesday for an early high tea (2pm rather than later in the afternoon). So, I'm making cucumber sandwiches (and I don't even like cucumber) little cookies, fruit salad, chicken salad sandwiches and tea. That's been the focus the last few days.
Do you remember this post about attending a High Tea at Sweet Simplici Tea? Scroll down to the tea pots in their cozies. Yep, I finally made one. It turned out very much like the one in the picture although it seems a bit bigger around the middle which could just be based on the size of my tea pot. I'll be doing a tutorial to make your own tea cozy sometime in January.
Now, how did I do on my weekly goals?
