The tea towel exchange group I belong to has enjoyed swapping embroidered tea towels for over a year. We are taking a short summer break right now, but hope to be back to stitching and sharing again soon. The project has brought a great deal of enjoyment to group members. By tea theme or holiday, we've stitched tea towels in patterns of our choice to share with our swap partners. The tea towel in this picture is one I mailed off last autumn, but didn't post because I wanted it to be a surprise for the receiver. I thought I'd post the picture after she had responded and sent me my package. But, unfortunately this swap partner evaporated into cyberspace and a response and a return package were never sent, and thus never received. That is the way with life sometimes; our best plans sometimes don't work out. I don't know where this little tea towel is right now --- hopefully it was received and is being enjoyed. I hope so. The autumnal crysanthimums and the words "Queen Mum" were meant to be enjoyed by someone who loves flowers, tea and all things English. So, I will imagine this little tea towel, set upon my swap partners tea table, gathered together with a cuppa English Breakfast tea and a crumpet to start the day! May it be so!
