We just had to give a cross stitched nod to the good old British tradition of tea-drinking at all times and in all places. This chic and quirky sampler will look fantastic on a kitchen shelf or wall, and you could easily change some of the thread colours if you’ve got a special colour scheme you need it to fit in with. The design area for this sampler is 23x33.5cm.
We’ve finished our sampler as a stretched canvas rather than putting it in a frame, as the design already has a cute little scalloped edge to draw the eye. Stretched canvases are really easy, so if you’ve never tried one before don’t worry – this project includes an easy step-by-step guide.
