Warm Up Stitches

Tea pot on a tea trivet

This stormy weather is the perfect excuse to stay indoors and finally get down to some long-overdue sewing. It’s been so long, I needed a warm-up project; something I could finish in one sitting. This trivet didn’t require a plan, a pattern, or any measurement. Which is just my style.

Don’t look too closely; you’ll see the botched corners and the less-than-regular hand stitching on the binding. But hey, it’s going to get splashed with tea aplenty so perfection is not its destiny.

Meanwhile, I’m choosing fabrics for a bigger patchwork plan. I’m hoping the next won’t be quite so botched. I’ll have to keep practicing those corners..
