Tea on Tuesday

Standard

I sit here,  sipping today’s tea,  sent to me from mi amiga, Teresa, from one of her many sojourns to France- -Fauchon Paris, a “tea for two” –fruit rouges et miel (red fruits and honey). Of course, my teacup is loaded down with local honey- I enjoy a little tea WITH my honey!!!

Gazing out the window, at the fog – another un-December-like day, and a week before Christmas.

The world seems to have taken on another hue.

The fog here covers a multitude of sins in the world…….or does it?

The chores of the day remain the same as every day, but the air we breath is a bit tainted, by sadness, the news bombarding us over the airwaves, and the grim reality of the world.

But, the donkeys still greet me with their squeaky voices- happy that breakfast is arriving, along with hugs and nuzzles. The dogs are ecstatic that they are going to the barn to eat poop and check out the scents of who visited/trespassed during the night!

I must get to the PO today, to mail a stack of our traditional anise flavored pizzelles to the son in San Francisco.

Then, finally, back to the basement studio, to sew up a couple of pillowcases for some children in Connecticut- to be filled with sweet dreams.

Made with love, and sewn with thread that hopefully, will magically ward off the nightmares that come to children in the dark of night.  Each of my pillowcases will have a tiny heart hidden inside, to let them know they are loved, by persons unknown.

If you have a few minutes today, and would like to make a pillowcase or two out of fabric from your stash- they need to be received by December 27th!!! Hurry, hurry!!!!!

Mail them to:

Quilters Corner

312 Danbury Rd

New Milford, Connecticut 06776

She hopes to collect 600 (!) pillowcases!!!!

Here is a link to a pillowcase tutorial – but it’s simple enough to use one of your own pillowcases for a pattern.

Drop by and join us for tea every Tuesday , I am here other days of the week, so feel free to come by anytime, leave a comment, become a follower, let me know you were here!!!

Don’t forget to visit Patty – for a list of other tea fanciers……..

  2. As promised, I am getting ready to post my Tea Tuesday entry and am linking to your post concerning your daughter. I agree that this is a time of reflection and pain.

    I will follow the pillow link and hopefully make a pillow before the 27th. This is a very worthy cause.

  3. I am going to a memorial today…maybe when the heaviness is gone from my heart…I lost a dear artist friend in a car accident suddenly and one of the teachers lost in Connecticut was a cousin of my husband Ken. I am praying for peace. Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  4. Your post today has a melancholy air to it. This has been a tough thing to get through …. Your pillowcases sound like the perfect thing to sooth the dreams of a child and the heartache of the quilter. Thank you for sharing the info …
