My Sneak Peek so far . . .

36 comments
There has been some awesome sneak peeks out there for the tea swap that Stephanie is hosting. I've been very curious about the goings on and can't wait for the reveals. But I guess it is my turn to give a little peek.
I like the shape of a teapot all curvy and cute.
Michele is a machine embroidery artist. I really love seeing what she comes up with. This came from Michele's machine.
But I can't show you all of it. I think you have a pretty good idea (I lifted an idea from another swapper - shhh don't tell.) And Michele sent this sweet strawberry. And that is for me! Thanks Michele. Michele just featured Mennonite Girls can Cook on her blog. This is off topic here but someday when we all sit down for hot chocolate (or whatever) together I'll tell you about one of the best lunches I ever had while visiting Lancaster County Pennsylvania. I know from personal experience, those girls SO know how to cook! I'll have to post about my PA Dutch cookbooks sometime. More teapot shapes. May or may not be included in the swap. You never know.

"Pretty maids all in a row" is what I think when I see my rick rack colors all lined up on my shelf in front of folded fabric. Am I using rick rack in my tea swap creation? - I'll never tell. At least not today.

Hey N,
Love your sneek peek;) Can't wait to see the whole thing. I missed out on the tea swap-should have been a little quicker on the draw. As for your rick rack...all I can say is mmmmmmm mmmmmmm!

Can't wait for the reveal! The colors are beautiful.

Where did you buy your ric rac? I must have some.

Thanks for sharing!

Such a tease! LOL oxx`jodi

madrekarin said...

You are such the tease. Your swap partner is going to be very happy, I'm sure. :)

Yay! The package arrived at your place! I'm always desperate to hear from the "customer" about whether or not she liked the item (I've got to get over that!), but it's SO MUCH BETTER to be blogged about. Thanks!

I like the embroidery/fabric/applique combination so much better now days after putting it together. You know, when you work so close to something, it never seems right until time passes or it's out of your hands. I can't wait to see the final product you put together with the fabrics. -- Michele

Love the peeks. And wow that rick rack is amazing!

Sandi said...

That's some serious rick rack stash!!! Is it all vintage? Lovely embroideries by Michele. Could the strawberry one end up as a pot-holder? Have fun with the tea party!!

Jackie said...

Love all the sneak peeks! I can't wait to see them! Boy oh boy, do you ever have some rick rack! Love it!

Momoo said...

All your tea items are cute, but your collection of rick rack is really impressive. Most people I know buy it in the small packages in the fabric shop.

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

I like your surprise even before its completed. The fabric is delicious!

Smiles,
Lea

happy zombie said...

What delicious peeks!!! And the pretty maids... oh goodness that some ric-rac love you got goin' there!!!

After reading the comment you left me, I had to dial 91 myself! STOP that, or I'll have to dial the other 1 as well! Blush!

PS... the yellow is a basic Moda. I've had it in my stash for a couple of years. It sings to me too! And I love it even more now that I know you love it too!

Sherri said...

Love your sneak peek...and now I'm just going to be dreaming of ric rac all day long! Can't wait to see the projects revealed!

Joyce said...

Those teapots are so cute! Gosh you are a busy woman! I just purchased a bunch of ric rack and not quite sure what I am going to do with it.. I have been using it on some cute aprons.. but those teapots are giving me other ideas! Thanks for sharing.

Catherine said...

I can't wait to see the reveal! Your fabrics and little peeks are making it very intriguing.
Where on earth did you find that ric rac??

Thimbleanna said...

Ack! Look at all that awesome rick rack!!! Where did you get those cool spools! Can't wait to see the rest of your swap!

CJ said...

What a tease you are! I can't wait to see all of these projects! and YES, where did you get the ric rac?? Sooo pretty and must be nice to have it all at your fingertips whenever you need it.

Joy said...

Love all the ric-rac .... I think I'd be in heaven with all those to choose from :o).
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Nedra said...

The ric rac looks so nice all lined up in a row. Looks like you have your own store to work from.

Kaaren said...

I think I'll be dreaming about that ric rac tonight. The colors are amazing. Let me see, how many yards will I need. Are you taking orders? (VBG)

Love the fabric, colors and can't wait to see the finished product.

pratima said...

Lovely sneak peeks!! The teapots are so darling!
Michele's embroidery is very cheerful and amazing!

Lily Boot said...

yet again your fabrics leave me sighing with delight! But that rickrack - you're a right little Martha Stewart Nanette! That's one of my dreams - to have a sewing workshop set up with a long rack of ribbons and rickracks and braids all just waiting for me to take my fancy! :-) Looking forward to seeing more teapots.

Valerie said...

I am impressed. This is a great sneak peek. I love it!

Mimi Sue said...

Looks like you got your ric rac from Costco. How fun. Mimi

Hi Nanette,
OMG what a cute sneak peek and the ric rak, love all the colors. Can't wait to see everyone's ideas and gifts...
Keep Stitchen'

Mel said...

Thanks for the 'peek'!

I LOVE your ric-rak!!!!

Eileen said...

ooo.. you are such a tease. FUN thinking about what you are doing with the tea pots. :-)

I'll have to pay attention to when you do the cooking thing.. I could show my Mennonite Cookbook that I've been using since I could measure flour into a cup.

That cocoa colored ric rac in the center reminds me of when you were looking for just the right shade for your birdie quilt. :-)

I bet you are busy getting ready for your big week!

sarahmurray said...

Nanette! I love the sneak peeks. I also can't wait to see what everyone makes. This is so fun. And about your ricrac... I have this little problem when I see something I LOVE, my eyeballs pop out of my head and roll around on the floor. I'm going to catch my eyeballs now. x

Dionne said...

your sneak peeks are always fun! Love the link to Mennonite Girls can Cook! Fabulous site!
Cheers,
Dionne

Dawn said...

Fun sneak peek!! Can't wait to see the finished project!!

Carrie P. said...

Love the sneak peeks. Can't wait to see what every one does.

Nan said...

Wonderful sneak peeks, but I think everything you create is wonderful!
That strawberry is very pretty - I can't wait to see what you do with it.
Your ric rac is dee-licious!
