Tea Time Stitching!

I'm just so excited to finally be able to reveal this project that I have been working on for some time behind the scenes, well in fact the idea has been floating in my head for the last year but with one thing and another I never got round to it until now, you know how it goes! So drum roll please.... Welcome to this very first Bumpkin Embroidery Pattern. It is adapted from my Friends for Tea range of Prints & Cards. You can now create your very own Bunny & Her Teacups to come to Afternoon Tea in your home. The Embroidery Pattern is available in my Etsy Store.

With Christmas on the way and Winter setting in on this side of the world I always love to have craft projects on the go, something very comforting about that, of course accompanied by a cup of tea! So I hope too that this Pattern will bring you lots of fun and cosy comfort whatever the season. Even better still it is a PDF pattern so I will send it hopping right into your email box, no shipping costs and no waiting for the post to arrive. Yipeee, let the fun begin!

A big thank you must also go out to Nicole of Follow The White Bunny for her help and encouragement, she creates the most gorgeous embroidery patterns.

I have got so many new items to share with you my head is spinning, but I felt that this Bunny and her Pattern deserved their own post so the other friends will be waiting patiently in the wings to be introduced, hopefully tomorrow. Hugs, Catherine x


  1. Catherine, How wonderful is that?! I LOVE it! My youngest daughter is seriously considering getting one.

  2. Hi Catherine,
    That is so cute! I love the bunny sitting inside the teacups; charming indeed! Have a wonderful day.


  3. OO,this is sooooo cute....love it..

  4. I like that idea!! I've done a bit of cross-stitching, but not much embroidery. It's a very cute pattern. Can't wait to see the others! :-)

  5. Lovely work, Catherine!
    I used to do a little bit of embroidery as a teenager and you have brought back some good memories,

  6. Gorgeous pattern, very sweet! Thank you for the kind words too :)

  7. Oh so sweet, I've added it to my Christmas shopping list, my mum would love a stocking stuffer like this - she loves real embroidery, and positively loathes cross-stitch, so this will be right up her street :o)



  8. I am in love!!!!!! This is my favourite print (aside from Libby's special one)... Too bad I don;t know how to embroide... maybe I should learn!

  9. p.s I have a new blog!



  10. So very precious! I love it! The colors are so happy.

  11. Catherine, how very adorable and sweet! xxoo

  12. VERY, VERY sweet, Catherine--what a great idea! I love the colors you're worked this one in too. It's been a while since I've been doing embroidery...I should get my needles going with some of that again! ;o) Look forward to seeing other designs you'll be creating/offering. Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

  13. so adorable! you did a fantistic job! i love it! big huggs!

  14. It looks lovely Catherine. I'm tempted to say I'll have a go, but I know how many other things I say that about and never find the time you know? But I want to. It's really lovely!

  15. Such a lovely Tea time design! Great work!

    Best wishes,

  16. I love that you have this as an embroidery pattern now! So cute! I think I will have to go back to your etsy page to order that!
    Anyway, I wanted to let you know that the cards and magnets arrived yesterday and I LOVE them!!
    Thanks so much!! -Gayle
