The Numbers Game

Very Important Numbers

20  There are twenty new petite objets d'art pour les tea cosies to make.  For a proper exhibition in a gallery (or eight) with plinths and down lighting and didactics etc.

74  There are seventy four voice recordings to transcribe for said exhibitions - tea cosy guardian stories gathered from six towns across three states during 2012.

1  There is one book to propose to a  publisher.

4  That would be book number four.  Perhaps we are heading to the Golden Hands Encyclopedia of Tea Cosies after all.

6  There are six Craft and Quilt Fairs in six cities around Australia and NZ to prepare for. 

2  There are two April 'at home' workshops to look forward to.



AND SO WHAT HAS ONE BEEN DOING?

One has been making scarves!  Well, ONE scarf.  Sunita's Double Knit New Yorker with Woven Windows.

6    OK .... so there ARE tea cosies on the boil .....six cosies done and dusted and patterned! 

14   Fourteen to go.  



0   None, zero, zilch can be shown here.  Not for ages.  Zeeez eeez particularly difficult for One who secretly thrives on tea cosy love.

OK, so not so secretly.

Your work is fantastic. I was lucky to come across your web site looking for color double knit. I especially love the beautiful double knitted scarf on Theresa milstead page of double knits. I 'm hoping there is a pattern that you offer for a fee or can give me some guidance. Now I have to find your tea cosies that your fans are waiting to see.

Hello Ms Anon

Thank you thank you. There is a free pattern for this scarf on the website www.grandpurlbaa.com

If you haven't double knit before then youtube is the place to learn.

Have fun.
Still smiling.
All books are available in Australia or on Amazon.co.uk

oooh darling there'll soon be secret agents trying to infiltrate your abode and take secret shots of said new cosies...i say that in jest but am sure it could be real possibility! Gosh I got weary just reading about what you have to do...but as long as you're enjoying it all. And the scarf and beautiful diversion...
Love to you for the year ahead...
