Default MMTPT445 ~ Jan 31, 2017 ~ Shining Light of Hope

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #445



MMTPT445 Shining Light of Hope


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!


I am your hostess this week, and as always, I am no great storyteller, so I'm sorry, no fun story this week. Following on from our last tickle of cosy, comforting quilts I am using the theme of lighthouses this time round for the first tickle of 2017. It always interests me that lighthouses seem to be such a powerful symbol not just of hope but also of peace and calm - at odds with pictures of stormy nights at sea and high waves, and the way they were so often built to mark navigational hazards. When I was still living in my childhood home, I could climb to the top of a tree outside my bedroom and see the lights of three different lighthouses flashing away in the dark. We used to hear the boom of the foghorn so often too, and while I no longer live near the coast, it seems to me that that's a sound of the past now, I can't remember the last time I heard one.


So, bring out your lighthouses this week to light the way through the coming year, whatever each one of us is facing we can enjoy the peacefulness or the light guiding us through darkness.


CHALLENGE TRANSLATION: Use a lighthouse on your card

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.


I have started this new thread in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions. Don't forget the Helping Hand!!!


Here is a Quick Link to the MMTPT445 Challenge Gallery

Here's my sample: MMTPT445 Be Still

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT445 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!


And while we're talking lighthouses, I just thought I'd share a photo of a lighthouse-themed afghan I knit last year as a gift for a special friend! Call it some extra inspiration. I bought the pattern thinking I would knit just one lighthouse as a cushion cover, but I couldn't decided which one to use .





If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Your quilt is a treasure! The only 2 seaside places I like to go to are rocky beached-excellant shelling Montauk point with it great lighthouse facing east and Hecheta Head west facing lighthouse with its Keepers house bed and breakfast in Oregon.
Please count me in.

Smile MMTPT445 CC620 Richly Blessed GC holder

Combined the lighthouse challenge- paper piecing my images and sentiment- and added some coloring, using this week's color challenge selections. Created a ribbon/trim border for my sentiment. Perfect for a gift card holder for a dear friend. Here's Richly Blessed GC holder

Re-did my card above- did some masking for my "light" emanating from my lighthouse, and kept it all on one panel, using a die cut. Kept the ribbon and trim, adding some baker's twine. Here's Richly Blessed.

Fun challenge. I think I got the digi used on my card specifically for a Teaparty because I only have a tiny rubber stamp of a lighthouse.

Sabrina, your afghan is beautiful. At first glance, I assumed it was a patchwork quilt, but knitting is even more impressive.

Here is my card. I'm practicing techniques so I used the one I learned today to make a vivid sunrise behind the lighthouse. I look forward to sharing cards with a fellow Teapotter!

Sabrina your knitted quilt is amazing and so is your lovely story. I am away with my craft group and Internet is very hit and miss. I will be home on Sunday, I'm looking forward to seeing all the lovely lighthouses.

Heart WT621 MMTPT445 Love Shine Out

Decided to revisit this challenge, combined it with this week's bells challenge- did some direct to paper for my background, and added "rays of light" along with hearts and bells. Here's Love Shine Out

I will absolutely have to join in on this particular challenge and what perfect timing. We just got back a couple of hours ago from spending the weekend in a lighthouse caretaker's house. It was awesome. Had a private tour of the lighthouse with all of it's wonderful history this morning. (Point Robinson, Vashon Island, Washington). One of those things on our bucket list and a gift for my husband's birthday.
