Embroidered Trees--OMG

My One Monthly Goal for February was to do the embroidery for a new tea cozy for my dad, who brews a pot of tea every morning.  I chose a really lovely embroidery pattern by Cozy Blue Handmade that I thought he would like.  Since I want the design on both sides of the tea cozy, I needed to stitch the design twice.

I'm pleased to say I got them both done!  I actually spent the first two weeks of February with my dad, so he's seen the pattern and approves. Just so you have proof that I really did stitch it twice, here they are side-by-side.

I stitched some of it on the plane going to visit him, but much of it was stitched while we watched movies from his DVD collection.  During my 12-day stay we watched 9 movies!  Here is our final count:

Funny Face
The Music Man
His Girl Friday
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
State Fair (1945 version)
Kiss Me, Kate
Arsenic and Old Lace

Many of these are among my favorites.  The only one I had not seen before is Charade.

  1. Pretty tree! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  2. Good job! That's a really pretty design!

  3. I am absolutely in love with those embroidery trees! I am doing a Christmas row quilt this year and might have to get that pattern for some trees. The only thing is that I am already doing Gingerbread houses in embroidery and don't know if I want to do more.

    Thanks for the eye candy. I'm sure your dad loved it!

  4. That really is a very nice stitchery pattern, and it looks beautiful on that fabric! Gorgeous job.

  5. Very pretty stitching. That should make a very pretty tea cozy. Happy stitching this week.

  6. Beautiful stitching and great design!

  7. Great design for someone who lives in the pacific northwest!
