tea parcels









I seem to go in and out of embroidery phases, as the lovely Coco says "it gives you peace of mind" it is a calming and relaxing past time and I really am loving it at the moment, perfect for cold days. These are my embroidery scissors  that have been handed down to me, they used to belong to Great Aunt Gwyneth. I have been using the tape I bought from 'what you sow' to make little parcels for holding tea in so I can ship some of my favourite teas out to friends. Happy weekend all xxo

  4. Just love this! I am exactly the same as you, going in and out of embroidery phases. But no matter whether I have the bug for it myself or not, I always love it! Love that tape, too. :)

    1. me too, always appreciate any embroidery, hand or machine, something about it, I wonder whether it is the connection with the past, a skill passed down form generations, once a necessity to know, now more of an enjoyment x
