Anyone for tea?

Hello all , Just a quick post (or that is the plan). Thought you would like to see my latest finish .This is the Tea Room stitched on Wednesdays in the parlour at Needlecraft Haven,. I bought the Burford Cosy as it is just the right colours to attach it to.It also goes with my Little Tea if you please.
I have got one other finish but cannot show that yet. July wordplay has been started and this is as far as I have got.
Please excuse the hoop marks but the iron has not been out for the past couple of days.I am really enjoying this one. I know it has an American slant but I like it anyway. American designers do such lovely designs and I just cannot resist. I have seen a few by Country Stitches lately that I like.
I started Courage on Monday with Sally but she has got so much further than I have.I also started a new one in the parlour last week .
This is Cherries and Berries by Country Cottage needleworks, over one so it is very twee. Tonight is parlour night so I shall be stitching on this. 
Thankyou so much for your kind comments on Caitlins' Lavender Cushion, she was thrilled with it and said it would rest on her pillow.
On Sunday with it being Fathers Day we went up to Graeme and Sues for lunch. Her parents were there too and we spent a lovely afternoon with them I think Misty enjoyed the attention too.
She was very interested in the water feature Hmmm any fish in there?
A little sunbathing .
She has grown so much.
The roses have started to bloom in the garden and the smell is delicious.

This is a rose called Blue for you, and really is this colour.

This one was moved from the other side of the garden,where it was overgrown with brambles,looks as if it survived. This Physiocarpus is just coming into flower.
The man who cleared our garden last year came and planted more plants on Saturday The bananas we thought we had lost we still have one. He replaced the ones that did not come through the winter.
Well my dears I have taken you through the roses etc so now I think I shall go indoors and make a cuppa. Would you like one.

Love this mug. So we started with tea and ended with tea.See you next time, with a few more stitchy bits hopefully.
Take care and a little note would be wonderful.

Hugs Barb.x

Misty looks so cute, a bundle of fluff.

I'm looking for a Peace rose to plant for Dad - he loved oses and had 15 in his front garden. Peace was one of his favourites.

Hello Barb from a new follower. I love the Tea Room and hope some day to add that one to my stash. Looks great on the cosy! I was just looking at the July word play today and may have to add that to my wish list as well.
Very pretty flower garden!

Your garden looks delightful Barb and I would love to call for a cup of tea and see that beautiful cosy.

Shirlee said...

Oh my! Where do I begin? I absolutely love that tea cozy & pinkeep. You did a great job! I like how your cup & saucer sort of match the fabric in the cozy. And what a cute kitty teapot : ) Misty sure is a cutie! Your roses are all lovely but Blue for You is gorgeous! I've not seen anything like that here. Love your Thomas Joseph mug! His sheep are all so adorable : )

Christine said...

The tea cosy is gorgeous Barb, and your roses are looking gorgeous, I've only got a couple out so far, everything is so behind this year.
Misty is just adorable

Brigitte said...

I do love your Tea Room cosy, what a wonderful idea to attach the stitrched piece to it. Looks great.
You've got such beautiful roses in your garden. It must be a delight to walk along those rose bushes and smell their perfume.

Jane said...

Love your Tea Room finish ~ great idea and colours match with pin keep lovely!
Your roses are just gorgeous and have never seen a rose that colour before, really pretty.
Have a good week xxx

Julie said...

Cheers... i could do with a cuppa!
Your roses are looking stunning, the blue one is so pretty.
Misty is adorable, i'm sure you had plenty of little furry cuddles.
The tea room looks fabulous on the cosy, you do come up with some wonderful ideas.
I can see the 'wish ewe were here' on the mug, i could do with some beach time again, i am in need of the sound of the waves in my ear, i've told hubby i need to move to the seaside, dont think he was listening lol.
Lots of love xxxx
