The Verse is a Rebus, Part II

Thx Pat!!!

I was given
these photos from
Pat Winter
of the tea trays
she purchased

It is so much fun
for me to see
close up images
these pieces

I thought I'd share ...

Polly, put the kettle on
and we'll all have tea

(who is Polly?)

Except the kettle boiling be,
filling the pot spoils the tea

And, I wasn't able to figure out
what that meant -- so, consulted
with a couple tea drinkers & stitching friends,
in the know ... they tell me
you can only brew a good pot of
tea with BOILING water
not warm, not hot --- has to be boiling

Another picture:

Has anybody else
seen or stitched
a sampler like these?

Part One - previous post
