Why not...

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'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
