Sorry I have been "missing in action" this past week. While finishing up my potholders from my last post my tendonitis in my wrist started to flare up. I slapped on my trusty wrist brace and stayed out of my sewing room for a few days--oh the agony (not the wrist, the time away from sewing LOL!)
It felt better by the weekend and I was glad because I, along with many other volunteers, manned the Touching Little Lives booth at the Ohio State Fair for a few hours on Saturday. I had my camera all set to go but left it on the kitchen counter so no pics of the event. :-( Hopefully we encouraged some people to get involved with this wonderful charity.
After being AWOL from the sewing room for several days I had a couple of customer projects to catch up on and then BOOM! I was sidelined by Labyrinthitis, which basically is an inner ear disorder that gives me vertigo. I never know when it will strike. I usually have to spend my day(s) in bed waiting for the room to stop spinning. Luckily this was a mild one and I am feeling much better today (Thanks Sabra, for stepping in at the last minute and subbing for me at work--I owe you one!)
Long story short (too late?) No sewing to show you. How about a peek at my teapot collection instead? Let's just start with a few today and I will post more in a couple of days. I have alot of Japanese teapots (go figure).
This little beauty fits in the palm of my hand and makes about 1/2 cup of tea. Designed for pouring into tiny little Japanese teacups, not the stomping big mugs I like to use. This was a gift from my mother many years ago.
A teapot that I purchased while living in Japan in the mid '80's. This will make about 1 1/2 cups.
Another purchase from Japan. Roughly the same size as the one above.
A bigger teapot. This holds probably 2 1/2 to 3 cups.
More to come. Talk at you later. Rumi
