More tea!

This little Tea sampler is just so much fun to work on.....I think it's because each little block is a finish in itself . You know how we stitchers love that feeling of a finish :)

So here we have blackberry tea...


....block number three in the sampler so far...


 ...loving the bright colours in this block...


 I originally thought that the blue was a bit strange for the cup and saucer and was in two minds whether or not to change it to white and greys, which was how the picture on the packet looked, but in the end, I decided to go with  designer Krista Hamrick's choice......


....she knew best! It looks great.

And the wonderful Krista Hamrick has designed a coffee counterpart to this sampler which you can see here. I think this coffee chart just might be going on my wish list to Santa!

Until next time..happy stitching!

Gorgeous! I really like this one, and being more of a coffee lover myself, the coffee one is going on my wish list too!
I'm always too scared to change the colours that a designer has chosen. I think they are the experts and must know best!

You can have enough tea, both real and stitched :)

Fantastic stitching and another great little finish. The blue cup is really pretty, very delicate colouring.
