I just met my paternal grandparents last year, and this was our first Christmas together. I don't really know my grandmother that well yet, but I knew she needed some tea balls, so I made this to make the packaging special. (It's made from an old pants leg  Cheesy)

Up close:

That was my first grown-up, finished embroidery project, too.
I didn't know what my grandfather could possibly need, but I know he's very interested in the Revolutionary War. I gave him a copy of "Washington's Crossing" with this bookmark, from a flag carried in battle:


Thanks for looking!

Love the tea pattern. It's so pretty and how cool that it was a pant leg.
