Always Time for Tea

This little embroidery is entirely the fault of a really special friend of mine who did a grand job of enabling me after which I did indeed create this in a couple of hours. It's a pattern from World of Cross Stitching. Issue 202 that I did a few colour adjustments on as I just cannot stand pink or purple.

First I swapped the lilac for a muted orange (209 -> 3854) then I swapped the darker pink for darkish ecru like colour ( 760 -> 3866) and the lighter pink for a really pale yellow (3713 -> 712) You can't really see much difference in the two colours unfortunately but I wasn't going to unpick it again as I'd first used "ecru" instead of the 712 but that was even less visible in difference, so I ripped it out. I have to admit that I rather like the cream coloured cups now that they are finished - much more like something I'd buy myself :)

Size of embroidery: 1 1/4" x 3 1/4" / 3,25 x 8,5 cm
Fabric: 18 ct Aida
