CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Put the kettle on and ... say it in cross stitches: Jasmine, Earl Grey, Orange pekoe, Lapsang Souchong, Darjeeling, Ceylon, Oolong and even the mundane English Breakfast, none is missing!
This is Tea Time is part of the beautiful collection of Tea & Coffee cross stitch patterns designed by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles. Match it with Classic Coffee Break (see below) it will make a great pair!
Two steaming cups and some flowers frame the top part. There is a light border all around replicating a sewing line. In the center is a smaller frame housing an elaborate letter "T" monogram. The border itself is exquisitely detailed with pretty Algerian eyelets and some elegant fan stitches (actual straight stitches) radiating from the four corners.
The piece is stitched in lovely warm colors, with parts stitched in Splendor and Gloriana silk variegated floss.
Note: DMC cross reference is solid colors. You can also pick your own set of colors, including one or two overdyed or multicolor, but make sure you do a floss toss beforehand.
This cross stitch pattern comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart with instructions describing special stitches.
"Makes a lovely housewarming gift!!"
