Today I finished off a new tea set.
This is the "good tea set" , you know the one that only ever gets used when great Granny comes to tea. It lives in a special cupboard, never goes in the dishwasher and is always used at the table with a full set of cutlery. It holds dainty cakes and gourmet meals. It is home to Christmas dinners and starchy, over-rich puddings.
This one is the regular everyday tea-set that the normal folk get to eat off. It is just as happy on the table as it is on your knees in front of the telly. It is happy to hold your dinner, your snacks and your hot-chip sandwiches dripping with sauce.
With the gorgeous and gracious help of Miss Precision (seriously this woman's workmanship cannot be questioned can it Nikki?), this pattern will be available at the Stitches and Craft show in a few weeks. For people who can't make it , the pattern will go into my very neglected Etsy shop just as soon as I have had a little post-show sleep or two.
