A Spot of Tea!

The weeks just seem to be flying by lately. Not surprising since the munchkin keeps me very busy these days. This past weekend we went to Richmond to visit some of Allen’s family. Nathaniel finally got to meet Allen’s brother and sister-in-law along with Allen’s grandparents. They were so excited to meet their first great-grandson. Since Nathaniel spent the majority of the weekend being held by his other relatives, I was able to get in a fair amount of stitching. Since none of my current WIPs are particularly portable, I decided to start one of the coffee and tea kits by Little House Needleworks and Crescent Colors. I plan on stitching all six and hanging them in our breakfast nook. I finished most of Spiced Tea over the weekend and put the finishing touches on it tonight. I ended up adding a bit of backstitching around the cup because the ecru silk blended in too much when looking at it from far away. Otherwise I am pleased with how it turned out and look forward to stitching the rest of the series. If the snow clears up a bit tomorrow, I plan on slipping out while Allen takes his day off to shop for a frame


I have also done a ton on German Garden since I last posted a picture, but apparently my little camera “forgot” that I took a picture of it. Our old point and shoot camera still works, but has developed some severe dementia since Nathaniel was born. It will randomly have memory card errors or delete pictures that you have taken. Oh well…for the moment it is still a bit easier than using the fancy new camera when I am trying to upload to my laptop until we figure out why I can’t access photos on our network. Well, I hope everyone is having a fantastic week. I am off to upload pictures to build a photo album for Allen’s grandparents and then maybe work on a motif for Alchemical Romance. Yippee!
