Amongst the wondrous things from my aunt's great parcel, I found a set of twelve gold plated tea spoons. They are in "the wee style of cute" or more correctly Louis Phillipe and needed a cover. I made one this weekend in grey wool and pink embroidery thread so pale it looks white (unfortunately).
If plated items are left to hit each other and wiggle around they deteriorate more quickly. These cover both separate each item from the other and protect the plating from tarnish, a huge problem in Utah where the air is very salty.
A little monogram for good measure, it will be my family treasure after all and an envelope to keep it all safe. (translation: tea time)
