My forsythia has not bloomed...there are buds so I check every day for progress. My daffodils are up and ready to bloom...I am very impatient. Have a great tea bag quilting weekend! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Oh00what delicious delicacy that transparency of teabags with it's shimmering pastels is, but don't swoon, there's a new moon to be looked at! Have a beautiful weekend.

The text peeking through adds an even more wonderful goodness to this completely unique idea of yours!!

your tea bag quilt is a gorgeous piece of art, with those lovely hued transparencies and muted words.

Ah, a bit of spring has arrived in your garden...hooray!!

Loving each and every stitch and the text makes your tea papers all the sweeter!

Such a brilliant time of year when the parade of flowers begins anew

Enjoy * Enjoy dear Kimmie

It would seem that slow stitching is all that is required at times...
Love your hexagon journey.
Dreaming of yellow now...
we awoke to a thin layer of white stuff again...
Come on spring !
Happy Weekend !

How do you work with those teabags without ripping them? They seem to be so delicate but I guess they really aren't since they are used to hold tea in hot water. :) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Your quilt is beautiful, and reminds me of an organza, paper and felt WIP I have buried in a box somewhere from about 10 years ago! I must look it out.

And as Tammy said ... tips on working with teabags please :)

Really impressive slow stitching. Your art quilt is perfect because it is mostly all recycled. I may have to try something like that without the hand stitching, of course. It's especially great that you can read the text through the tea bags. Love that aspect of it all.

beautiful stitching as meditstion I bet. Yellow Spring will wait for us another month at least! Nice to see. xox

Our Forsythia hasn't even thought of blooming yet but we have had some rather warm day of late so that should help push things right along.
Your tea bag quilt is looking fabulous. So delicate and slow stitching indeed.
Enjoy your Sunday!!

Linda said...

You have such great ideas...and I totally agree; stitching to a formula is so soothing x
