You'll probably recognize it as the LHN "Herbal Tea." I changed the colors of the silks and the lettering. I added blending filament to the "steam" and interspersed pink and pearl beads along the border and on the cup. The fabric shown with it is the one I used for the backing. I added the ribbon and pearl trim along the edge and was so pleased with the final result! I have always liked the combination of pink and green. I think they're "happy colors." Pastels are among my favorites.
I keep telling myself not to start anything new until the last piece is finished but you know how THAT goes!! I call it "stitching multi-tasking"
These past few weeks have been busy with getting the house cleaned and decorated for Fall, my son's birthday, finishing my yearly continuing ed credits for anesthesia and chairing a raffle for the church picnic.
Next week, I'm attending the Stitching Jubilee in Lancaster. Are you going? As an early birthday treat, my family has given me hotel reservations for 2 nights (I usually make it a day trip). I'm sooo looking forward to it... shopping, meeting up with old friends and being able to concentrate on my stitching.
I have to get these projects finished here this week because the temptation for more stash enhancement is looming next week. Oh, I'll TRY to be good and resist temptation....HA!
GIVEAWAY NEWS..since my birthday is coming the first week of November, be on the lookout for my first giveaway!! I can guarantee a few new goodies from the Jubilee and some little "stitching extras" to make one of my blog followers happy!!
Thank you for your kind comments and emails. I appreciate each one and enjoy following yours. Your stitching talents are great and the friendship it brings even greater!
Please try to make today a beautiful one for someone touching it with a little kindness....what a difference it makes for all of us :)
