My Scalloped Tea Cosy is finished, and as you can see, it looks good on my tea pot. A wee bit big, but that is probably more a result of my tension than the pattern. I did twelve pattern repeats of six scallops. For a smaller pot you could do five scallops. The pattern is free from Crochetroo. If you plan to make this cosy, I do recommend that you find a video showing how to do the stitch, it will make it much easier to understand the directions.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
The above two photos show the pieces I'll be working on today and tomorrow. I'll be out of town visiting and sewing with a friend, hence I am putting my Tuesday post up early on Monday. I'll have some more photos of this project next week.
Two seams are completed here, both starting with a button hole type stitch.
To my cute polar bear friend, I have added a basic button hole stitch.
Years ago I bought a copy of The Crazy Quilt Handbook by Judith Baker Montano . Even then, I had plans to give this quilt form a try, it just took me much longer than expected. I haven't read all the instructional parts and have skipped to the back section that gives detailed diagrams for an assortment of stitches and embellishments. This should keep me going for a while until the next book I have ordered arrives.
Have you been stitching along at a project over the past week. Add your link to Mr. Linky below and leave a comment telling me about it. Without the encouragement of my readers, I wouldn't have started on my crazy quilt stitches (thanks to Regina and Teresa, and to Shelly regarding those weeds, I'll get to that one later in the week).
