Dishes Not Stitches

Happy Monday Stitching Friends!
Thanks for all your kind comments on my needlework display. I hope their are some people that start stitching or think about stitching because of it.
This post is about my continued hunt for dishes in my pattern. I got 2 pieces off eBay this week.
First is a large 13" platter in black. I had it in red but now I have a black one. Yes, imagine me happy dancing and fist pumping :)



Here is is next to it's red sister.



Here is one of the small ovals that we use all the time for a sandwich and chips. You can see how large the platter is.
Then I got one bowl. I had no idea what size it would be. It is actually bigger than I thought.



It is more like chili sized. Thank you Vana( it is actually Rich) for your assistance.



I put one of the cups that is used for a cup of soup or dessert inside so that you can kind of see the size difference.



So now I need to be patient and maybe I will find some more of these bowls.
Isn't restaurantware fun? So many different shapes an sizes.

Happy Monday!

I used to work in a fine glass & china shop and I prmised myself that when I got married I would get either a Royal Doulton or Wedgewood china tea set - I never did!!! To be honest I don't think I could choose a pattern, there are too many I love!

You share my love of china. It's great that you could share your stitching (post below) in this way. Hopefully visitors to the library would see it and realise how varied stitching can be. Our local church once did a display of needlework which I took part in and it had a lot of visitors.
