Cosy & Warm

Even though I am a through and through coffee lover, I don't mind a pot of tea every now and then either. I found this cute Maxwell Williams Teapot at Myer during their stocktake sale for only $4. Well, I couldn't pass up a bargain like that and considering I didn't already have a teapot this size I had to bring it home with me.
Well it made a lovely pot of tea but I found that it needed a cosy. It is a 2 cup pot and by the time I was ready for the second cup, the tea had gone a little on the coolish side.
So.... here is what I whipped up, thanks to my new book "200 Crochet Blocks". I altered the pattern slightly to make a couple of Bobble Blocks into a tea cosy. I just love the way it turned out and it now keeps my teapot cosy and warm.

This also arrived in my letterbox yesterday..........

yes, the next stitchery of the month. Boy these do come around rather quickly and I hate to say it but I am still on last months stitchery so can see me once again getting behind. There just is not enough hours in the day to do everything that has to be done and what I want to get done. Any way I will just keep plodding along and I am sure that they will get done eventually. This month is a mug and spoon bag, very cute indeed.
