Mad Tea Party Update - Mel "Romantic Fool"

I've been slowly working through my stitching goals for the year.  Slowly being the key word.  I think I've only accomplished a handful.  The easy one (or maybe not so easy) was not to buy any new stash unless it was absolutely necessary to complete a current project!  The second one was to complete one page of HAED's "Queen of Hearts" which I did earlier this month.  Now I've been working on HAED's "Mad Tea Party". 

This one is ultimately going to be for my niece.  She is currently 9 years old.  I might have it done by the time she turns 18!  LOL!  This one I decided to do a little differently than my other HAED's.  I am doing this one 2 over 1.  It definitely makes a difference in the appearance but at times makes it difficult to get the needle through the hole in the fabric.  But over all I am pleased.  Just makes it slow going.

I haven't finished one page yet but I am halfway done with the first page. Ok, maybe a little more than halfway done!
