One down, eleven to go

Here's block number one for the teacup block swap. I'm planning to do twelve of them, but as the deadline looms I may cut that number back. It took about three hours to do the freezer paper applique prep for the cup and plate stands (the plate circles were already prepared) and applique it all by hand. Optimist that I am, I really did not think how long these would take!

It's pretty, though. Hope someone likes it as much as I do.

Wish I were part of the swap, though the thought of applique still gives me hives!

The fabrics remind me of some of the demitasse cups of my Auntie's that I just packed up. Her's were bone china or Wedgewood and I just loved looking at the design. I love tea cups and tea. But I don't use anything but a mug. Hmmm... must remedy that.
