Tea on Tuesday

Some things of interest this cold sunny Tuesday, while I sit here sipping a hot cuppa Lady Grey with lots of honey.

First - if you love pincushions - you have to check out the winners of Piecework Magazine's Pin Cushion Contest - Unbelievable!!! I tried to show a picture here, but for some reason it didn't work.. So just go to this link - and view some fabulous creativity!!!

My favorite, altho it was really hard to choose just one, was the grandmother's purse, - and even the honorable mentions were more than honorable!!! I wouldn't mind having any one of them in my collection!!!

Second, I am having a little giveaway.

I recently purchased Angela Cartwright  and   Sarah Fishburn's Volume 11 of their wonder-full Pasticcio Quartz book.
As I was reading it, I realized, I had already ordered this issue !!  I got swept up in the excitement of thinking a new volume was hot off the presses and without checking, just blindly ordered it!!!

So, my mistake, is someone's gain!!

These little books are a fabulous compilation of everything artsy, from blog artist interviews, to paper dolls, poetry, famous quotes, rubber stamps, art history, and a mind boggling assortment of inspiring art, eye candy, photos, links, and how-to's. Alot of creativity between those covers!

Rules to enter: Spread the word on your blogs, leave a comment  here, with a way to contact you , and become a follower, if you are not already!
