Gracious Hospital-i-Tea Blog-a-thon ~ Stitches

 April 6th – 12th ~ Share ideas and pictures that involve stitching for the tea table. Any kind of stitches count: sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, tatting, quilting, etc. The work can be yours or of someone else, but should be homemade rather than done by factory machines. Ideas are
napkins, tea cozies, table linens, and other creations made with tea themes.

I have always called these dish towels tea towels so I’m including them in my stitch post. The Tea Cozy in the center was a gift that a friend in England knit for me after I was so excited seeing my very first tea cozy at her house in 1973. The doilie to the right of the tea cozy is great for setting a teapot on. I have a lot of tablecloths and napkins that I use for pretty tea tables that do not have a tea theme in particular. Most of these items are in my home in Washington and I don’t have access to them for this post. I’m looking forward to my visits to your sites to see what stichery you have…

I forgot about these fancy teaspoons we inherited from my MIL and decided to add them to this post

  5. What a great collection of embroidered tea towels. And those spoons are absolutely precious! I’m trying to imagine the time and level of craftsmanship that went in to creating each of them. What treasures!

  6. I love the owls and bluebirds, as well as the doilie. Your spoons are GORGEOUS!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for sharing your stitches.

  7. These are all some really beautiful things you have shown us. The enameled spoons are GREAT! My friend used the little tiny “souvenir ” spoons (old ones) from all over the world in her “Tea Shop” she owned to serve with tiny desserts….it was always fun to see “what country” that you would recieve when she brought you that course.

    I loved your linens as well…..very nice “tea” towels. Great memories.
    Thanks for sharing them.
