Cross-stitch Teacups

These teacups grace a wall instead of the tea table, but they are favorites just the same.

P4070469My hubby stitched this piece for me a couple of years ago.  It is from a pattern by Sandy Lynam Clough.  The teacups are so pretty – some of them have gold trim.  I also like the roses and ribbon bows on this large piece (15 x 15). You can see images of some of the many items featuring the work of this artist here 

Ms. Clough has a new book out this month called “You Can Do Tea”.  It features some of her new paintings and lots of great tea party info.  It is now on my ever expanding wish list.

Your hubby's embroidery is impressive. It is a beautiful design also. Some times I am almost inspired to take up embroidery again.

I'm with Marilyn -- this lovely piece *almost* tempts me to pull out Aida cloth and DMC's again! He does such beautiful work!

So beautiful! I can't do counted cross stitch... makes my eyes go crossed. :o)~

Does your hubby have a blog or flickr? I'd love to see more of his work.

Have a great day!

Darling what a lovely piece. I am always fascinated by those who have this type of talent. May be I will learn in my next life!! Maureen darling, I want to thank you my lovely friend for your support during a time when I need it the most. I sincerely appreciate your sweet words, kind and loving thoughts and prayers.
Rosemary (Lady R)is doing much better of late and in my opinion is ready both physically and mentally for her chemo sessions. She has a long battle ahead of her, but I am certain she will prevail. Thanks again darling, take care. Wishing you a lovely, sunny and marvellous summer.

Love & Hugs
Duchess

Hello, my friend,
Your husband does such lovely work. Love everything about this piece. I also enjoyed seeing your pretty tea cup and saucer for "Teacup Tuesday". Thank you for coming by for a visit. It has been wonderful to get to know you. Have a terrific rest of the week and weekend~ Vicki

you know, I don't think I've ever even heard of a man doing cross-stitches before. I'm impressed. My husband thought it was odd that I bought my 4 year old son a cross-stitch he liked so I could teach him how to do cross-stitches. I shall have to show my husband this post!! I am VERY impressed!! :)

This is absolutely gorgeous, and so special that your husband stitched it for you!

Sandy Clough and I used to attend the same church back in the 70s, she was the very young artist and sold her paintings for less then, but I still couldn't afford them then :-( I saw her again a few years ago at a church retreat she spoke at. Lovely lady, inside and out.
