Time for Tea

Here's another project I'll be working on throughout the year, Teapot Calendar, available from this Etsy shop. I'm stitching the Russian version, but there is an English version included in the PDF. I'm using the recommended DMC threads on 28 ct. Oaken from PTP. The literal translation here is "time to drink tea." In English, we'd just say, "time for tea" or "tea time." 

The "January" and "February" blocks.

I think I'm really getting ready to start some spring stitching. I'm a snow lover, but once March rolls around I'm ready to open the windows and get on with it. (It's supposed to snow Saturday.) I've got a little stack of spring projects picked out, and I'm looking forward to sitting down and playing in my stash, pulling fabric and threads and getting them all ready to go. And there's that pile of finishing I keep telling y'all about. One of these days I'll have some finishes to share. You just never know when it might be, so don't wander off too far!

Happy Stitching!


  1. This is too cute.
    Love that fabric.
    Most of our snow is gone, now the rains come.

  2. What a pretty tea piece you are working on, Honeybee! Your piece of Oaken is gorgeous. Thought about you yesterday -- Yoder's has Shamrock sprinkles. Enjoy your Friday and the weekend (hope it doesn't snow on you).

  3. Cute piece. Lovely fabric. Yes I'm looking forward to stitching spring designs too. Need to get some obligation stitching done first.

  4. Oh my- what a beautiful, beautiful pattern! I'm heading over to Etsy right now because this is going on my to-do list... Excellent progress on it, thank you for sharing :)

  5. Love this tea themed cross stitch pattern. I have bookmarked the site so that I might purchase the pattern.

  6. That's a great design. I do like a monthly series and this cute.

  7. This is a really pretty design and you've made a great start on it. I like your fabric choice. Thanks for the link; I love tea- themed designs so I think I may have to get this one!

  8. Have a happy stitching time! Very nice fabric :) Ivita.
