A Choice of Teas

We now have a choice of teas and I'm a little under a third of the way through, with 6 teas to do and a title!
I'm quite enjoying this one, it's like working on lots of little projects, so I'm getting lots of little finishes, which is fun and gives me a sense of achievement on a regular basis.
Considering just how much I hate doing back stitch (and don't we all!) I'm actually pottering along quite nicely with this one, I've never done a Bothy kit before but it's quite nice,e asy back stitch, not ending up randomly in the middle of stitches or anything like that, which is what I always dislike about backstitch, a stitch rarely goes across more than three stitches at once. The most fiddly to date has been oddity for back stitch, although it looks brilliant now that it's finished!

I made the New England Homes from Bothy Threads and loved working on them.
The winter one had lots of beads going in and i didn't like to do that, but since then i found that if you have the right needle then it's a nice thing to do.
I love this one your making, great colors.

Hugs Yvon.

Great progress - I have never done a bothy thread precisely for the reason I hate backstitch. Yours looks great.

It's looking great.. I like a project that sub-divides nicely.

I also love your Snap Dragon, every time I see the picture I want it!

Hi Kim,
This is coming along really well. I think I like the idea of a picture made up of many small ones. It is a bit like a magazine, you can dip into the bits you want!
Love,
Shirl x

Love your Teas! I'm a tea-drinker and this project quite takes my fancy - one day I will have to add it to the stash!
