Ironcraft in Love!

This theme for the Ironcraft Challenge this time was hearts and flowers. During this time of gushing love expressions, I tend to try understating the sentiment. I believe that less is more. Don't get me wrong. I'm all for showing love and sentiments of kindness. I prefer the ones that are subtle and not too showy.
In keeping with the quilting theme I've been on, I appliqued two cups of tea on a table. I enjoy having the time to have a cup of coffee or tea with conversation with my loved ones. It's not the type of coffee or tea (although that can make a difference) or the type of cup, it's the time that I long for. Time for letting the world go by without you. Time to just catch up, be it on daily news or a some life-altering revelation. I love having time to talk and nowhere to go. My piece is all about that. I chose to make the cups different to show that the drinkers were not the same. The more manly mug and the dainty cup suggest that this
could be a couple on a Sunday morning. The hearts above the cups are the steam rising from the delicious brew.
What is your favorite way of taking moments with your loved ones? Have you a ritual that you like to do? I'd love to hear about it.


  1. How lovely. I like when my husband and I go out for coffee or a meal and get the time to just talk.

  2. I do too. My favorite with my husband is Sunday morning's coffee and tea, him the coffee, me the tea. We talk about events, ideas and not the kids.
