Interested in a Coffee/Tea block swap?

The other day Lynn wrote that she was thinking about making a coffee cup or tea cup quilt for her new house. She said it would be fun if a few quilty friends would like to play with her. I commented that I've been thinking about making a coffee cup wall hanging for myself. I know, can you believe it? Coffee Time Stitches at Home does not have a coffee cup wall hanging.

I'm thinking of hosting a coffee cup or tea cup block swap. I'm wondering how many bloggers would be interested in playing along with Lynn and I. If you're interested, please let me know. I will draw up some guidelines based on how many people reply. I'm thinking of four 8" blocks from each participant. The blocks could be paper pieced or applique. Any takers?

In other news, look . . . I'm knitting. This sample is not large. There's only 10 stitches to a row. It's a start and probably won't become anything special. It could be a scarf for one of my teddy bears.
I finished the Merry stitchery from Gail Pan. I have an idea for these little stitcheries. I just need the time to execute the plan.
I have two days off the end of the week. I'm hoping to spend some time painting the trim in our living room and kitchen area. I need to get it done before the baby shower for DIL in three weeks.

Until next time, happy stitching!
Sweet P

A nice little read, Paula - love the colours of the yarn - do not envy you the painting - used to enjoy it - not these days - very rewarding though, at least all the hard work is very evident!

The coffee one sounds interesting.
Keep me informed of the guidelines please.

A coffee tea cup swap would be fun, but for right now I just can't take on another project. It will be fun though to see what you all come up with.

It's hard to believe your quilting studio doesn't have a coffee cup quilt hanging on its walls. Every time I see coffee themed fabric I think of you. :0)

I will join a coffee cup swap, I have the cutest pattern for a coffee cup. Yeah, you need a coffee cup quilt picture for your blog.

Love your stitchery! I am hoping to get to work on that project one of these days!
I am interested in a coffee cup block swap. I think a 6" block might be easier to find a pattern for. Or maybe you will direct us to a pattern?

I'm so behind on blog visiting - sorry. But it is fun to come and have a lot to read about ;)

I love that you used pink in your Christmas Wishes BOM - I jsut this week traced off mine and am still searching for the boarder fabrics to sue so that I can match my colors up with them....

Can't wait to see what your "plan" is for yorus... please share with us!

Happy Weekend & Love from Texas! ~bonnie
