Stitches-for-Tea



La Tea Dah at Gracious Hospitality is hosting a Tea Blog-a-Thon from March 16 until May 31. She has a different theme for each week and you may participate as much or as little as you like. The theme for the fourth week, April 6 - April 12 is Stitches-for-Tea: "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."

Checking my tea linens I found this handmade item which I’d like to feature for this week’s Tea Blog-a-Thon: It is an apron made of white linen with embroidered design at the top of the bib and a teacup on the pocket.

It measures 41" long with an adjustable 34" waist. White buttons fasten the ties of the bib and of the waist ties.

The embroidered designs are in blue, yellow and cream with bows, and dots on the bib.



The pocket features a teacup in blue with white and yellow daises.

I hope you enjoyed my contribution this week to Stitches-for-Tea. Please visit La Tea Dah at Gracious Hospitality for links to other participants.

What a darling apron! I love the colors -- crisp white with navy and yellow. How fresh!

And thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. If you can't find hand-embroidered tea towels in your local area, there are several vintage items available on ebay and Etsy. Good luck!

Great apron and nice little detailing on it. I have a plain ol'Battenburg one with no stitching but I still like it! HA!
Thanks for putting it on there and showing how pretty it is.

I love your apron! The teacup is so precious :). I'd have to just display it, I tend to get pretty messy when I'm cooking or baking so I try to use colored aprons although I do have a favorite white one I use :). Thank you for sharing, it's beautiful.
