Gifts of Tea
Tea gifts! Karleen brought me a Christmas present filled with some unique and interesting 'tea' things. They made me smile! The figurine is 'brimming with hospitality' and is so cute! Would you like cream and sugar with your tea?
Since last week when I was at Karleen's house sewing, she found some 'tea themed' flannel which resulted in a special 'tea' pillowcase that she made for me. I'll have 'sweet tea dreams' when I sleep on this whimsical pillow case!
Karleen also made a pretty set of 'tea coasters' using 'teapot and teacup' prints. The tops fabrics are folded into half and pressed, then woven together into a foursome. Backing is placed on top, stitched on, and then each one is turned. Very pretty and perfect for 'afternoon tea'.
Thank you for the pretty 'teatime Christmas gifts', Karleen! I'm sharing your idea with others who love tea in blogland.
