Teatime Needlepoint Pillow Pattern

I don't know how many of you are familiar with Sunset Magazine. I was born about 1 1/2 miles from Sunset and it has always been a part of my life from visits to a whole lot of recipes I use. A Western magazine to be sure, but regional now as well.

Because the magazine specializes in lifestyle, gardening, food and travel, I was surprised to see a full page add for a needlepoint company called Ehrman Tapestry advertising needlepoint kits. I do cross stitch, not needlepoint, although at one point (no pun intended) I did needlepoint a chair cover for an antique chair I inherited many years ago.

But in the ad is a wonderful needlepoint kit for a design called Teatime featuring teacups. The central is a Shelley China teacup in the Queen Anne shape. That is so cool! So thought I'd post it in case anyone is interested or is looking for a tea related project. The cup cake pillow is pretty cute as well!

Sunset also surprised me with a few pages of tea related things which I will be sharing in the next few posts.

We are off in the rain to a Parkinson's Disease monthly support group today, after which we have a lunch out and hit the antique/thrift shops in case we find something we can't do without. We chinwag with a local dealer pal at his shop The Mouse Trap in Port Angeles, and generally have a neat wander-around day. Hope yours is as much fun!
