A Little Bird told me its Teatime featured in Creating Country Threads Vol 13 No 3

 

My stitched tea cosy "A Little Bird Told Me" is featured on the cover of this month's Creating Country Threads magazine.

 

This project allowed me to combine a simple stitchery in just a couple of colours with some iron on applique work. I stuck with a strong, simple image and tried to add some humour to the work by having the back side image featuring a second bird carrying a flower to present to the bird its seen on the cup.

 
Red is one of my favourite colours to work with, and the all over floral in red that lines the tea cosy is such a flexible print.

I hope you enjoy this stitched work.
