Welcome to "Week Four" of the Gracious Hospital-i-Tea blog-a-thon. Please join us this week in sharing Stitches-for-Tea. You may also post more to any of the previous weeks if you have more to share in those themes. Thank you to everyone who has enthusiastically posted in the blog-a-thon. I am really impressed by how y'all are sharing comments on one another's blogs. I have observed many budding friendships and that's what makes this all the more fun! It's not just about 'tea' but about 'tea and friendship'. I have read everyone's posts from previous weeks, and have commented on all. If I missed you, it was in error. Please, feel free to call it to my attention so I can be sure to go back and talk about your post!
Here's our assignment for this coming week:
April 6 - April 12
Share ideas and pictures that involve stitching for the tea table. Any kind of stitches count: sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, tatting, quilting, etc. The work can be yours or of someone else, but should be homemade rather than done by factory machines. Ideas are napkins, tea cozies, table linens, and other creations made with tea themes.
The tea linens shown in the picture above were ones stitched and edged by my mother.
