The teapot has two spouts. Inside there are two separate pots, one for hot water and one for tea.
Several years ago I painted an oil painting for my mother of the teapot and I added a little bluejay.
On a recent trip to my mom's, I was staring at a gorgeous quilt that Lynne had made for my mother. I glanced over at the painting and had a whirlwind of inspiration.
When I got home I designed over thirty different coordinating designs using the same colors. My fabric collection is called Mom's Bluebird and Teapot Collection
I am still trying to find a great way to photograph these designs for my shop.
Never in a million years did I believe that I would someday be able to convert my paintings into fabric. More importantly, that I would be able to pour out my heart into my designs.
When I lived in Hong Kong I fell in love with Canto Pop music. This song is sung by Vivan Chow and it is called Prettiest Tears. Prettiest tears makes me think of the heartfelt memories of that chapter which are captured in these designs.
