Tea - this flavoured water that does us so good
Tea is a great part of my life, every single day. The tea does me good, it makes me stay calm, relax, it helps me find a moment's peace. So I just had to do something with tea. I love the elegant japanese sign for tea, and I also wanted to bring in one of my teacups. I used photo-transfer for the cup, and stenciled the sign with Markal oilstick. The text was done with my embroderymaschine. The I machine-quilted the background with simple straight lines, some angular spiky shapes at the bottom and finished with seed-stitch and french knots. Simple binding in red framed the piece.
