April Creamer and Sugar Bowl
Many of us like to drink our tea (and coffee) with some cream and sugar. You have to have pretty containers for those and that's what our April blocks are all about!
The 4th block in our 2018 Tea Party BOM is both the creamer and sugar bowl. Don't you love it in these organic orange dots from Kaffe Fassett? I made these 13+ years ago when I taught a class in Atlanta.
