It is a cold, wet day, so I am working on the computer. And just thought I would drop over and say "Hi" to anyone still calling by.
I am not sewing at the minute, due to real-life pressue of work.
But I am still cataloguing beautiful linen. I thought everyone might like to meet this Tea Cosy Cover.
We have two of these in the collection, made to an identical pattern, just with a slightly different ruffle. This is one of the most intricate pieces of drawn thread work I have seen, worked in very fine thread.
You can see a really big close-up HERE
We have a few of these tea cosy covers in the collection - they are designed to go over a padded inner that actually insulated the tea pot. But none of them ever have room for a spout. The whole thing must come off to pour tea.
*toodles off to find some more pictures of them*
