Tea-cosy from Sandi....

Some time back I recieved an e-mail from Sandi in Canada. Sandi does the most amazing needle- work....I was totally blown away by the detail she achieves....
well.... one thing led to another and yesterday I recieved this amazing tea-cosy....which I adore!!
The detail is beyond words! It is stiched at 60 stitches to the inch....can you even imagine???
I love the 'faded elegance' of the piece, it has an antique look to it....and just to complete the piece it is backed with a lovely blue fabric from France....
I can only hope that my photos can do justice to Sandi's beautiful BEAUTIFUL work!
I thank you so very, very much Sandi, I shall treasure it always......Linda x
I must just add that I have just 'hit' 300 followers.....wow!!....Who would have ever thought??
Thank You....x
