Tatting and Belly Dancin' Teapot Tuesday

Today I discovered a lovely scrappin'/belly dancin'/tea pot post from Colorado stampin' mom Mothermark. It hits upon three things I love so I just had to share.

Mothermark says since we can't all get together for tea the next best thing is a Teapot Tuesday Challenge. Her blog, This is my Story, has a terrific slide show of amazing hand-made cards inspired from fun teapots. Go see all the lovely creations.

And lest you think I've forgotten, this concept lends itself well to a Tatting Communi-Tea. So I'm brazenly hijacking the idea for my own tatting purposes! Are you all on board my thought train?
Here's how it will work:

Set aside some time on Tuesdays to tat and put the kettle on for tea. Share your progress on your blog or your favorite tatting group list, with "Tatting Tea Tuesday" in the subject line.
(Adding the "Communi-" part is optional...I just like the pun.)

And don't forget to leave me a comment so I can come see. It will be fun!

I think it's a great idea. Tuesdays will be my daughter's guitar lessons, so I should have time to tat. I'll probably substitute coffee for tea, okay? I do still love teapots and teacups, though. I'll post my progress on my blog: www.joyintatting.blogspot.com

Sure, subbing coffee for tea works for me. (Hey, that rhymes.)

I'm hoping to start tatting one of those DARLING teapots from Martha Ess' new book.

Hi Isdihara, What a great idea! Thanks for posting the link to This is my story. Wow, the slide show of teapots and cards was awesome.

Sounds great but will only be able to make some tuesdays due to my work schedule. I work 12-8 am with rotating days off. I love tea and try new ones frequently. I started all of my children with tea parties. (3girls and 1 boy) Some of the grands already enjoy tea also.
