Hand Stitched Tea Cozy

I hand stitched this little basket of flowers last year.  It was a weekend project at the cottage.   Well, this weekend, almost a year later, I turned it into a tea cozy.   I added two layers of warm and natural batting and a muslin backing to this piece of linen.  Then I machine quilted a grid and in and around the redwork.   No particular pattern was used.  I just made it to fit my favorite little Paderno teapot and it fits perfectly.

I have a quiet week ahead, why don't you stop by for a cup of tea.  

Cute, eh?
