Amazing work! Love all of the fine stitching. So you aren't sending it to Somerset? I thought they had a call for entries for "spring". Sew Somerset would accept this too, I'm sure!

Your creativity knows no ends. I would have NEVER thought to take tea bags and make something out of them - it is very beautiful and I love the theme.
