After years of wanting to . . .

. . . I have actually, really, truly begun!
Not that it matters to the world one little whit, but to me . . . I've been planning for tea parties since the day that it occurred to me that my children might someday give me grandchildren! A special tea party tablecloth is especially called for . . . don't you think!?

The photo is from the {now missing} pattern book . . . Ultimately, mine should look something like it . . . I think I've altered the color scheme considerably . . . a lot of the recommended threads are not to be found. But still!
You know where you will find me these cold, dark Winter days! Curled up beside the fire with a cup of tea beside me . . .
It feels so good to have finally begun . . .


  1. That looks like a lovely occupation for the dog days of Winter. Have fun with it!

  2. Dear Debbi!
    I love your picture so much!
    I was looking for such a cross stitch pattern in the Internet and yours was exactly what I wanted :)
    I am writing you from Belarus. Next year I am going to be married and I would like to make a present for my future mother in law - to make such a cross stitch picture.
    I wonder if you still have this pattern left?
    I would be so thankful if you could share it with me.
    send you my warm wishes from the center of Europe.
    best regards,
