Getting Ready For Christmas

It's hotter than hell and the humidity is chewable. Time to get ready for Christmas!! Pattern by Midnight Stitching Company. Pattern Name "Quaker Christmas" I'm not sure of the count fabric I'm using but it's an even weave linen-ish and I'll be blind before it's finished :)

The New Addition :)

My anniversary present. A 1955 Singer 221 Featherweight sent from England to the Pentagon where it was held captive to be tested for anthrax and bombing chemicals. I got it late but it was worth the wait :)

Christmas Tea

This one is going to the church fund raiser in November. I'm going to make a gift basket with Christmas teas and teacups in it. Pictures to follow closer to November.
Cross Stitched on 14 Count Aida fabric and uses gold metallic threads along the rims and handles of the teacups.
