I don't know where I was when you posted this, obviously not here haha  Wink

This is awesome! Love all the small details, those flowers, so tiny!   Shocked
Your stitches are perfect, every single one.

Amazing! Does your aunt still use this cozy?
My MIL made me a tea cozy (also a little house) and it is still awesome and loved by me!  Smiley

She does still have it, it's sits in pride of place on top of the fridge Smiley. It isn't used regularly since it fits an 8-10 cup brown betty tea pot I scored at the thrift store just for that cosy. We have a lot of family dinners at my aunt's house and there is always tea, I thought a very large pot for those special occasions would make a nice gift for her (she is my favourite relative Smiley ).

I made another version for myself, it's here and I've linked it in the original post here. It keeps tea hot for a long time and this one we do use often, almost daily.

That is great! More special to only use it for special occasions!  Smiley

Thanks for sharing that, I went over and commented it of course!  Cheesy

I'd love share it with you, but I can't take a pic now. It is evening and dark, which makes very bad pics. Tomorrow I will give it a go!  Smiley
