On a perfect sunny Autumn day, Bundoora Homestead held their inaugural Garden Tea Party. Thousands of people picnicked on the lawns, strolled in and out of the mansion, and checked out my tea cosy display. I was asked frequently if I'd made them all myself - the question was probably asked when they saw me stitching a doily when I was sitting at the side of the tent. Some people said to each other "What a clever way to recycle doilies" which prompted me to respond immediately that this was not the case - all my tea cosies were made up as tea cosies from scratch. Another question asked by many was "How much is this one?" and when I told them none were for sale because they are a private collection, they were astonished that one person could accumulate so many!
