Sit with me and have some tea, and we'll talk about old friends and the weather. I'll set the table with my best Linen and get out the finest China. Tell me about your Children and Grandchildren. Here, let me show you some pictures.

The Technical Challenge

This type of stitchery is called Lost Work, or Cut Work. The fabric is cut away leaving an open space. This is bound all around and filled with lace. I wanted to show this to you. It's executed in a fine Linen which holds up to the process. The Tea Bag just peeks out, implying its presence, but the thread that holds the tag on also holds the composition together.
