A Trio of Teapots

My fingers have been flying in order to meet a deadline.  Not my favorite way to work, but sometimes it happens.

Teapot I  - Perhaps I would start my day with a brisk cup of "English Breakfast Tea" poured from this pot.

Teapot II - I think the whimsy of this pot calls for a cup of "Dry Desert Lime".

Teapot III - Oh yes, "Jasmine Green", curled up in a chair reading a good book.

For these designs I used reverse punchneedle.  I like the reverse stitch for something like this.  It give a detail that the regular loops can't always provide.  The design is crisper and clearer.  

Of course now that they are finished I'm headed for a delicious cup of tea to celebrate...

"A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt


  1. These are delightfully quirky - and that Eleanor Roosevelt quote is wonderful!

  2. They are gorgeous - they fit so well together but still have so much character of their own. Well done for getting them done by the deadline as well!

  3. Boy, you did work fast! and they turned out great - and I agree with the comment from underatopazsky - I love how each is unique and individual but complements the other..Great job! and I LOVE the Eleanor Roosevelt quote.

  5. Beautiful, Penny, and so original! I'm sure you are the only person in the entire world punching reverse needle teapots. The second one looks like it's ready to sing and dance, like in Alice in Wonderland! :)

  6. This post has finally arrived on my computer four days after you wrote it, love the teapots and your smiling images on your next post made me smile as well.
