A cross tea

A fair while ago I felt the urge to learn how to cross stitch. The best design that I could find at the local sewing warehouse was a sampler of teacups! I started it and gave up for a stretch after getting frustrated, of all things, by not being able to distinguish the three different thread colours V LT Mocha brown, Ultra V LT Mocha Brown and sometimes Winter White. The thread came all bunched together and I struggled to differentiate.

One teacup down, three to go!

I have no idea what I will do when I have finished it. If anyone has suggestions then please let me know.


  1. Fabulous! It definitely needs to be framed and hung and not just hidden away. Let me know when you get your fishy parcel. Have a great weekend! x

  2. I might just frame it. I am not sure where I would hang it though - that is the next question. I have also found a lovely alphabet sampler that I will start on once the tea has been drunk.

    I will let you know when the fishes swim in!


Have a cuppa with me!
