More teapots!

two new teapots

I've made three more teapots since the last post.
I took pictures before the yellow one was complete.
Green, yellow, and orange. I am trying to achieve
the 70's style of colors somehow.. ;)

five teapots so far..

I've made decision on what these will be!
It will be a wall-hanging for kitchen.
Thanks a lot for sharing your ideas with me
in the comments for the last post. I seriously
enjoy reading comments every single day -
it is certainly one of my sources for daily
creative energy and joy/happiness in my days.

Since I really like this teapot pattern, I will
probably make a quilt using the similar pattern.
There is something about this pattern that I think
should be modified. Also, I have to enlarge it big time
if I am using it as a quilting pattern. Some of you
have asked me for a tutorial on this pattern.
That sounds fun! But then I would need to learn
how to make PDFs. I want to create the pattern
using some kind of software, not just a scan of
my bad drawing. If you know any website and/or
photoshop books that I can learn the steps from,
please let me know! ;)

Isn't it gorgeous?!

Today I want to thank all of you who have tagged me!!
I was very honored every time I found out I had been
tagged. I feel I am part of this community of creative
people in this sewing/quilting blogsphere...
and I love the feeling. I've bookmarked all the posts
I've found where I'd been tagged. Let me respond for
each per post starting today

I was chosen as a nominee for this award by Laura.
Thanks, Laura! Let me list 6 things that inspire me,
although I pretty much agree with all the inspirational
things Laura came up with already. 1) Blogs - unquestionably;)
I am constantly inspired by so many crafters' work.
I am subscribing to many of your blogs. So many of yours
that I constantly have over 200 new posts waiting for me
to be read via google reader. I keep myself busy during
the break from studying and sewing. 2) Books - I tend to
come up with best ideas at night, right before I go to sleep.
Looking at beautiful crafts on sewing books sure help
me get creative , but children's picture books are helpful too.
I like bright colors used in those kids' books. 3) Fabric
- sometimes I find fabric that I really like and I know
exactly I want to make with it. 4) Vintage items - I simply
love vintage items.. I wish there were a time-machine so
that I could go back to the 1970's and buy LOTS and LOTS
of things and come back to 2009. I know it sounds ridiculous,
but a girl can dream, can't she? 5) Building, fashion,,
pretty much anything beautiful that catches my eyes.
6) Althlopologie - who doesn't enjoy this store that is
always filled with creative ideas?!

I am supposed to nominate 6 Kreative bloggers, but
let me just say that I nominate all of you!!
I like too many bloggers. Too hard for me to pick a few.

Thanks for coming & reading!
