Time for Tea

This is a little embroidery hoop I stitched for my eldest daughter's birthday last week.

 Inspired by some cups and saucers I had photographed .......
The image was drawn onto the fabric freehand using a transfer pencil (the type that disappears when you rub it gently with a damp cloth). I used iron on interfacing on the fabric for the bunting to stop it fraying.


  1. An absolute beautiful and gorgeous embroidery! You should make lots of them, carry on as they will be fantastic!
    I have linked it with a picture to my blog so people can see as it's so gorgeous!
    I love the bunting and the fact you have used interface to protect it and the detail in the teacups are beautiful! Lovely spring colours, your daughter is very lucky!!

  2. Dear Jacqui, It is so nice to meet you!!! I am a friend of your beautiful and sweet daughter Becky. She is so talented and creative, just like you! I am so glad she shared a link to your lovely blog so we could be friends too! I love your gorgeous embroidery!!! You did a beautiful job! I love the teacups and bunting and the pretty colours you used! I was going to ask about the pattern, but you made this up yourself! Very well done sweetie!!!! I love that the beautiful photos you took of your teacups inspired you and you drew this out free hand. I love to make up my own embroideries too and recently made a poodle one. I know your daughter loved this and I hope her birthday was wonderful! Thank you for sharing! Much love, Paula xo
