Tuesdays Treasure with Melody

I guess because I have been finishing off my Mum's reading quilt for her Birthday she has been on my mind and the treasure I want to share today is a Teapot, Creamer and Sugar Bowl that my Mum painted for me when she was Porcelain painting.
I love the roses on this set....
And I also loved the elaborate design of them. I have had them for a lot of years now and as Mum no longer paints they are a real treasure to me. I love them.
Speaking of my Mum's quilt...I put the last stitch in it this afternoon and I think she will love to curl up under it with her favourite book. Mum is a voracious reader. I cannot keep up with her. The finished quilt.
Even though I don't usually stitch in these types of fabric. I have enjoyed it and some of them are exquisite in design. It has been a lovely peaceful process being all hand stitched which always allows for much reflection.
If you would like to visit our lovely hostess MELODY at The House on the side of the Hill you will find others sharing their treasures.
Besides finishing my Mum's quilt I have this little pile on my table.....
Hhhmmm!! What about these which are also on my table....
Enjoy your evening,
Blessings Michelle xxx

  5. Your china is delightful and very special. I know that when my mum started painting and teaching china painting I had no interest in it. As the years have progressed I have really appreciated her work and admire the fact that she still does it at 84. Maybe I have grown up, too.
    I love the gorgeous quilt you have made for your mum. It is great to see it all together now. It looks stunning.
    And it looks like you are up to more mischief with those hexies and felt stars!
