Here it is..........a cherished tea pot, stitched in jade green with gold decorative stitches on the lid and the spout...........with a rose in the center.
Teapots.......don't you love them? I do, I have quite a collection that I have gathered over the years. Each one is dear, but the one pictured above is very special. It belonged to my husband's grandmother. It was given to her on her wedding day, in the 30"s from her father. When she discovered that I loved teapots, she sent this home to live with me........I feel so blessed that she did.
I love the rose design and the intricate scalloped lid decorated with gold, as well as the top of the teapot lid handle. The spout and the handle also have gold on them.
I embroidered this set of tea towels with not too much fancy stitching, just basic embroidery, except for the rose, it is worked in a closed buttonhole stitch.
On designs such as this, I like the way simple and basic embroidery looks, don't you?
Now, how about you?
Do you collect teapots? Do you still use them?
I would love to hear!
I hope you stop back by to visit tomorrow to see what Saturday's design will be!
