10th Annual Family Christmas Ornament
Year 2009: Afternoon Tea
Sadly enough this was my worst ornament ever. I can honestly say that I was not completely happy with the way this ornament turned out. I loved the pattern and the idea I had in my head just didn't seem to come forth.
I loved the pattern, I loved the concept, I had great plans for this pattern but in each and every one I stitched I made a mistake (and any family members reading this who received one of these is just now finding this out!)
I really was ashamed to send these out but it it was too late to make something new and I really wanted to do a tea set. Earlier in the year one of my Aunts held an afternoon tea party, hats and all! It was a very lovely affair. I used that as my inspiration for this years' ornament and went searching for patterns of tea. I had initially wanted to do a 3D tea cup but couldn't win the pattern I wanted on ebay! Bummer!
