Heather over at Books and Quilts is the host for Needlework Tuesday.  Got any projects to share?  Head over to Heather's place and check out what everyone is sharing.
As for me.....I've started a new quilt and yes I know I haven't gotten any of the 3 done.  But I've been looking and looking for a teapot pattern.  Finally found one.  I made a few of these a few years back, but couldn't find the pattern.  I took pictures and luckily I saved them.  So I zoomed the picture out as much a possible and traced the teapot onto a piece of blank paper.  So now I have my pattern.  Got a couple done last night.  I'm using scraps of fabric to make the teapot, so they will be all different colors.  They will be on unbleached muslin and it's a 10 inch block.

I've also been working on my Crochet Along over at Red Heart Yarn.  I've got 5 of the 10 Granny Squares done.  I've got all the patterns so far, just haven't worked on them all.  I am having some trouble with the Cross Stitch block.  It keeps going wonky.  Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'll figure it out sooner or later.


  1. Hi Sherrie, nice teapot. Are you going to do some embroidery to indicate the lid?
    I had trouble with the cross stitch block as well. mine is skewed to one side. From the comments I read at the site, quite a few people had the same trouble. I am going to wet mine, then pin it out to the correct alignment and let it dry. Hopefully that will take care of the slant, but it doesn't really matter since it will be stitched in with the other blocks.

    thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  2. The teapots are adorable. Can't wait to see the finished project. Are you apliqueing by hand or machine? Thanks for visiting for Needlework Tuesday.

  3. Nice work, Sherrie.

    I'm just learning (more like reteaching myself) to crochet some basic stitches, so that crochet-along would be too hard for me. I can't wait to see your finished project, though.

    Love your teapot, too. I really like the print in the photo.

Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
