it's time for tea

It was last year when I received this beautifully done bit of embroidery in my swap package from Rhonda. I knew I wanted to make a tea cosy, but was unsure about the details.

This week inspiration [finally] struck...square shape, backed and lined with blue and white ticking and an inner layer of wool...perfect for my little brown betty and my medium-sized Blue Willow teapots...
Now whenever I'm making tea I will be happily reminded of a friend in Australia :) [Rhonda has shared the embroidery pattern here.]

  17. The tea cozy is so pretty. Is the cozy itself hard to make? I would like to make a couple for gifts and have printed the embroidery pattern.
