A Kettle...

I gave myself the afternoon off yesterday so that I could indulge in some patchwork piecing.
Not just any patchwork though, my mind was clearly set on sewing a kettle!

As soon as I saw it I printed up the pattern and placed it on my desk in preparation for an afternoon's play sometime this month. 

I think from afar my fussy cut kettle top looks like a bird, don't you?

My version of the Kettle block will become a wall hanging when I complete the quilting and binding...

...and I'll hang it very close to all my Tea Cosies!
After all, you can't brew tea without a kettle. 

 You may have noticed by the run of tea posts on the blog this week that I take my tea rather seriously.
In fact, I like to learn as much as I can about it and have a few books on hand for reference... well as articles I tear from magazines for future reference.

I have a couple more tea posts to share next week which will be lovely to close March with - and one more free design which I think you'll love. I was going to show you a peek today but decided to wait a little longer and surprise you instead. 

In the meantime here are a few lovely thoughts from one of my books.
I hope you enjoy your weekend, and your tea!



  1. Your kettle is just as cute as it can be Jenny. I love the fabrics you have, just my cup of tea! Hugs, ~Cori

  2. Your blog posts are always so beautiful. I enjoy reading them so much, thank you, Jenny.

  3. Of course I love your red teapot! I have a bright red teakettle on my stove!

  4. Brrrr , it is a cold wintery rainy day here today and I hope the weather improves for the weekend.I think you are a blue and red girl judging by your fabric and stitching choices. Unfortunately, I cannot drink normal tea as it upsets my tummy so I have always been a herbal tea drinker and Jasmine Tea drinker. Now my teas will be so much tastier having been steeped in a teapot with your tea cosy.

  5. Your blog posts are ways so much fun to read..
    Sending you big hugs xx

  6. I always love a cuppa, especially in the morning! Loveyour stitching Jenny

  7. that kettle block is too cute! I do love a good cuppa tea.

  8. You did a great job on that kettle block....I have been loving your tea posts....


It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
