More tea.....and a giveaway!

Another tea block completed.......my needle is smoking hot!


 Black tea.....my favourite to drink!


I like my tea piping hot just as this one looks with all the steam coming from the cup....perfect!


My next decision is whether or not to do each block in order or to jump around the chart and use some different colours! Mmmm...what to do?

I might not be able to get as much stitching completed over the next couple of weeks as I am doggie sitting for my friend while she is on holiday and her pooch is rather an attention hog. Also, the thought of getting doggie slobber all over my stitching isn't very appealing. Sooooo.....a perfect excuse to have a little giveaway so that I'll have something on my blog over the next couple of weeks!

Remember my Christmas gnomes......


...well there's actually fifteen....yes fifteen all together. (You can see close up pictures of these three here.) There are twelve of the larger gnomes and three of the smaller ones.....and I thought it might be nice to share these little cuties with you. If you would like to be in the running to win the chart for all fifteen Christmas gnomes please leave a comment below.  I'll announce the winner two weeks from today which will be October 31st, giving the winner plenty of time to stitch these for Christmas :) Please feel free to share this giveaway on your blog if you want to. If there are lots of entries, I'll pick a couple of winners!

Good luck!

Until next time....happy stitching!

Rhona

Great update on your tea sampler!
Those gnomes are just so precious, I love them all.
Please do not include me in your giveaway (sadly) as I have so much projects to focus on and I would not be able to stitch them straight away.
Good luck to everyone taking part!
