Finished the elephant tea cozy from Janet Granger Designs! It is stitched on 32-count silk gauze with Anchor stranded cotton. Bummer side note: Janet’s site was hacked and hijacked and she’s in the process of restoring it; you may not be able get through :(
The differences in the elephant’s
blanket shawl were not intentional, nor part of the pattern. By the time I realized I was off, I was disinclined to rip it all out. I can live with an imperfect tea cozy, especially because you only see one side at a time :)
Here it is trimmed, and the two sides hemmed and stitched together. So adorable. I want to make the ginger cat next.
A new load of barewood outdoor furniture was delivered today, so I made tea —green, with fresh mint leaves and ginger — and sat on the unfinished deck to think about color.
Table and chairs from my stash of Bruce Dawson, regrettably retired from miniatures. Ooooh! I just saw that SP Miniatures has some of his cherry pieces. Grab them while you can! Teapot, cup and saucer are from HBS/miniatures.com.

Well I sure can’t find any flaws in your tea cozy, it looks perfect to me. Great job!
Aw, thanks, Bennie. I won’t point them out :)
Adorable indeed, but you must have eyes like magnifying lenses.
Silly BW. I use a Luxo lamp, one of two in my studio, *and* my glasses. No other possibility. And actually, I normally I stitch on 48-count silk gauze. By comparison, 32-count is cavernous :)
