Two things done

I just love these teapots. I made this for a friend to put on a crazy quilt block. The pattern is from Martha Ess' Tea is for Tatting. I love this book and her patterns are awesome. This was tatted in Yarnplayer's Peace colorway. I love her thread. I hope to get the other three pieces tatted that go with this teapot before Christmas. I'm starting to feel the pressure of meeting my deadlines on all my projects.

The second picture is a painting on canvas we did. It's painted to look like an old window. We used a couple of different texture mediums for the side of the house and on the peeling paint. We've all seen old windows like this. You know the kind where care isn't taken to keep the paint off the glass. I still have a couple of shadows to make around the bottom sill but it's pretty much done. Since I used an Artist Wrapped Canvas I may not frame it. It doesn't go with my decor so it will probably end up with the rest of my paintings I have stored in my craft room.

Great painting!!
I have two of those old windows, I put mirrored glass behind them and put them up in my living room. The living room is long and rather dark on the one end, so the light gets pulled from the real window into the mirror and makes the whole room lighter.
BTW, can`t wait to come and see all your paintings next year!! We are going to have a ball!

Your painting looks so real. I just love to see the things you have painted. That teapot is just too too cute. I love it and know she will too. I'm with tisme, I can't wait til we all come up. I know we will have so much fun.

Your tatted teapot is lovely! I, too, love both Martha's teapot pattern book and Yarnplayer's HDT "Peace"! Lovely combination.

Your painting is also lovely! Now, when you say "we did" who is "WE"??? Did someone assist you or do you have an alter ego??? LOL!
