Tea Cosy Princesses

Princess Rachel's Cosy - a work of art in progress.




Yesterday and the day before, six Princesses of the Tea Cosy gathered at Tangled Yarns in inner city Brisbane to play tea cosy with me.

And that is all that needs to be said about that....

.... for their wide smiles and their happy tea cosies say the rest!

I wonder how you know how big to make the tea cosie when all tea pots are different sizes?

Jacqui said...

Look at those cheeky smiles, anyone would think they'd be downing gin and playing poker all weekend! Well done ladies, your tea cosies are GREAT

Princess Sam said...

Thanks Loani! I had the best time and I learnt so many things. I am working hard on finishing my cosy.

by MAGIC!

No really - in this workshop we work from the top down and when we get to the bowl of the pot we measure each one to fit perfectly.

We are not following a written pattern. Instructions are given verbally, colour and size decisions are made individually.

what lovely and very talented playmates you have my dear!

Thanks, Loani! It was a monster-sized coupla days and so, so lovely to have nothing else to concentrate on but the knittin'. (And if there was gin and a poker game, how come I missed that?) Now have far, far too many roses, oh well, another cosy on the way for my favourite home-pot.

The tea cosys the ladies made are absolutely beautiful. I made cosys years ago. Like maybe 30ish, yrs ago. My mother loved to use them. Mine were only plain. nothing like yours. Here in Nova Scotia, Canada people are tea drinkers. How may I get a pattern? Tea to you. Dianne
