It's been a long time since I've posted, but I've still been fiddling and faffing about with things. Tea cosies seem to be claiming my attention lately and I've struggled with patterns. I never knew there were so many different sized teapots around, so in the end I just came up with my own pattern. For no other reason than "why not?" I decided that as we've a Jubilee coming up, I'd have a go and see what I could do in red, white & blue. What do you think? Enough roses, not enough roses, enough leaves, not enough leaves? Decisions, decisions...
Does the basketweave stitch work? I'm very unsure...I need help! Should I make more? How much would I sell it for?
I've made a lot of other flowers too which are really difficult to photograph, but here are a few. I've got a lot of ideas floating around in my tiny mind, but working out how to press/stiffen/attach the things is proving hard!
And finally, just because....here's my beautiful house guest who's been a very poorly boy lately. He's on the mend now which is a huge relief, but I'm really going to miss him when he goes home.
Aww, Reggie :-)
Off to stare at some more crocheted flowers now, to scratch my head and wonder how to bring it all together
