Nettle Tea

Nettle Tea

An original artwork from Michelle's "Betty" stitched story series.

This artwork is inspired by the technique of spinning nettle fibres from the stems of the plants to make a cloth similar to linen. Betty of course wastes nothing. She uses the unneeded leaves to make a deliciously nutritious tea, sweetened with a teaspoon of honey perhaps!
