Carolyn's Tea Time II Round Robin

One side of Carolyn's tea cosy
The second side

Carolyn's tea cosy is made from old fashioned prints and was fun to work on.  I chose the chicken scratch on the first side (above).  I love doing chicken scratch and I was glad that she had one on each side, and one was left still to do.  I also embroidered some blue bullion daisies on both sides of the cosy.    On the first side there was a small rectangle that looked just like a table, so I filled it with beaded goodies.  And on the second side I added a simple cross stitch seam treatment in red, white, yellow and royal blue.

Very pretty work Diane! I can't wait until it arrive so I can play with it too.

I know I've mentioned this to you before ... I would love for you to teach me how you make your awesome bullion stitches!

It’s good to have you back, Diane! How was Florida? As always, your stitching is clever and beautiful. You are always an inspiration. I’ve missed you. Hugs, Cathy
