Time For Tea!!!

I still am taking a break from my rotation and worked on this small design that I have had saved on my computer for ages.  I stitched it on the hand-dyed tea fabric that I wrote about in an earlier post.  I love the detail in this and think the french knots in the tea-leaf shaker? (not sure what it is called) looks really good.  I feel quite confident when doing french knots now.  The pink flowers add to the design since they stop it looking too muted with their burst of colour right in the middle.


Name:  Tea
Designer:  Barbara Ana
Threads:  Six-Stranded DMC regular cotton
Fabric:  28 count evenweave, hand-dyed in tea by myself
Dimensions:  66 stitches wide by 59 stitches high

I have also just found out about the wonders of Yahoo groups and have joined in on a SAL from one group called Oakhaven Designs.  Each month there is a design of a different owl and they are soooo cute.  Since it is obviously May, I have had a few months to catch up with.  I am just finishing off May and will hopefully post an update on it tomorrow.  Happy Stitching Everybody!!!
