Cup of Tea

Here is my Cup of Tea.  I do enjoy a well made cuppa - English Breakfast is nice but I also used to drink an Assam Tea which was always served from the pot in lovely china ....memories of a very dear friend no longer with us.

(Should have trimmed it first!!)
Also I couldn't resist this bag in Big W this morning - perfect for keeping my finished blocks in??  If I were REALLY keen I could turn it into a block holder . . . then again - maybe not.

Cheers SAL'ers

Confused about the tick....
I love that you added your personal touch to the tea cup...The top was a little complicated to figure out but I finished mine last night.
