Time for Tea

is finished! The colours are lovely and the little beads are the perfect addition.



I did draw out the shapes for this month's Henrietta Whisker's block last night but the light wasn't good enough for fabric choosing so I settled down with my next cross stitch project which is 'Once Upon a Time…an Owl' charted by Jardin Prive from the the art of Spanish artist Raquel Blasco Not my usual sort of colours at all but I just fell in love with the picture, here's a little peak of what it will look like when finished…


I have a few other charts from Jardin Prive and may do the Eiffel Quaker after this owl is complete although I really need to catch up on the Civil War Sampler blocks. I've got quite behind lately as I seem to have been enjoying cross stitching so much that I've got completely caught up in it!


FNSIButton Friday Night Sew In this month is on 20th May – I'm hoping to join in a little bit but we'll be spending some time packing up Catherine's rucksack ready for her DofE expedition…hopefully now that we've done the practice weekend we'll be quicker at packing for the real deal! You can join in too by signing up here

    I can’t keep up, Time for Tea looks just lovely and you’ve ironed it as well. I’m nearly caught up with the CW blocks, I have promised myself to finish 7 Sisters this week.

    The tea cups are just gorgeous. You got that done really quickly too.
    I do love your owl one. I’m still eyeing up a couple on that site after you pointed me in its direction. Sigh.
    And, I’ve just signed up for the next FNSI. Ta for the reminder 🙂

    What a gordeous stitchery, those cups of tea! Or is it coffee?
    Love the other stitchery you are working on now too. Definitely very different from what you usually show, but very pretty!
