A very Carmen Christmas
I have not met either of them in person as they live in another city, but have been emailing them recently over The Bloke's fabulous fish book.
It turns out that Jennifer has been knitting tea cosies and on learning of such renegade behaviour, I insisted on seeing what she'd done.
Prized Rooster and Carmen Miranda are off to sit under others' Christmas trees before adorning kitchen benches to be admired and adored by loved ones.
As all tea cosies should.
I love this photo. It holds in it the 'little girl' in all of us, pleased as punch to make something with love and joy and cleverness, for someone else.
