Second to my love affair with creating is tea. Usually creating and a cup of tea go hand in hand. For a tea drinker like me, a cup of tea marks time in the day....early morning, mid-afternoon or when I need a moment to just breathe with an idea. It also marks time and moments in life. This tea bag quilt is made of about 100 tea bags that I've dried, opened, cleaned and sewn together. It represents the moments of my life at that time. Some were ordinary, others exquisitely extraordinary. It was a time of grieving the loss of someone very close to me and the making of this quilt helped to memorialize it for me.
