Tea Cosies, Decisions and Movember

Good morning everyone and a very warm welcome to a couple of new followers. Before I start I'd like to know who is switching the lights off in the mornings, isn't it grim?!!

I was busy beavering away making tea cosies yesterday and I thought you might like to see.....

Had lots of fun thinking.......

.......snipping and placing .......

and sewing ........

.......a pink one...

and a red gingham one........

............and a little house one.

All now listed in Folksy. My needlecases have been popular and so todays' chores are to make a fresh batch but there again, I also received a nice big box in the post a few days ago

inside were these.......

...........and so I need to put them to good use as well. Decisions, decisions.

Before I bid you farewell, spare a thought for me won't you as I'm having to put up with this at the moment....

....well I'm not, my hubby is (tee hee). Whilst I'm all for supporting a good cause, why did he have to go for the 'trucker special'!! Seriously though I am very proud of him and after galavanising his work colleagues they've managed to raise a few hundred so far. Well done OHx

Speaking of good things why not pop over to Pickle Lily's blog, she's got a giveaway on at the moment and it's one not to be missed.

That's all for now, but do come back tomorrow when I can share with you what I gave to my friend for her birthday. I'm going out tonight to help her to celebrate and I know she sometimes dips into this blog so I can't show you just yet.

Have a lovely weekend and massive thank you to you all for visiting this week, I've loved reading your comments and your blogs and really appreciate my bloggy mates!

  2. Hello Caroline:
    The tea cosies are super. We particularly like the way that you introduce the gingham fabric, it lifts the whole thing. The red is very jolly!

  3. I love the tea cosies! The gingham is gorgeous, as are the little houses.

  4. Love the tea cosies! They must take you ages.

  5. Have sympathy with the Mo. My hubby is growing one too. not fetching!

  6. Look at all your teasing photos - and I don't mean the one of your hubby either! Can't wait to see what you've come up with for your friend! Vx
