Twins/2



O fim desta primeira fase aproxima-se. O quinto bule tem origem praticamente desconhecida. Foi-me oferecido pela Ana que apenas sabe tratar-se de um bule antigo herdado de uma prima. Escolhi-o, como outros anteriores, pela forma, bastante distinta dos que apresentei até aqui. Para o bordado usei ponto pé de flor, ponto atrás, nózinhos e ponto caseado.
E já só falta um!

The fifth teapot has an unknown origin. It was a gift from my friend Ana and she inherited it from a distant old cousin. Basically, I chose it for its original shape. Stem stitch, back stitch, french knot and buttonhole stitch were used for the embroidery.
And now only one is missing!

Estava curiosa por saber se outras crafters poderiam ter sido inspiradas por bules, como eu. vejam os que encontrei aqui, aqui, aqui e aqui.

I was curious to know if other crafters (quilters) were inspired by teapots. Look what I found here, here, here and here.

I have made two wall hangings using my teapots as patterns. If you are interested I was working on them in May and June of 06. I had a lot of comments from people who collect teapots so you are not alone there. I really like what you have done with yours as inspiration.

The special thing about your piece is that you are using your own teapots as part of the project. You will be able to have the quilt to show beside the teapots. And it will be wonderful and one of a kind!!

Es maravillosa. Esta tetera tiene una forma muy peculiar. Me gusta mucho tu proyecto, es orignal y muy personal. Gracias por los enlaces.

Obrigada pela visita no meu blog, só assim para eu descobrir o seu. Adorei! Os bules, os tecidos que você escolhe, os blocos de tiras, tudo lindo. Parabéns!
