Teapot Cosies and a Quick Catchup
Hello again! How have you been? I'm well and plodding along with my big belly, feeling more and more like an ogre than a woman at times.
I'm also rather forgetful. It's taken me a month to remember that I wanted to share the Teapot Cozy Exhibition with you. Oops!
It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Woy Woy. It's early June and the weather is starting to feel real cold at times. We went for coffee with my in-laws and had a nice stroll along the waterfront after that.
The trees were stunning at this time of year. I love the crimson oranges and reds in the leaves against the bluest of blue skies. There were lots of people out and about enjoying the sunshine. No one seemed to mind the cold when the sun is out like this.
We walked around the corner towards the Country Women's Association building and realised that the yearly Tea Cozy Exhibition was on! They even had tables and chairs out on the lawn where you can have yourself a nice Devonshire Tea. Too bad we had already eaten. But naturally we had to have a stickybeak at the tea cosies.
There were two main categories you could enter your tea cosies into - Children's Stories and General Section. I especially like the entries into the Children's Stories.
Aren't they just the cutest? Such creative handiwork! I love the Grug!
And the picture above is the winners' table. I personally would have picked some other cosies to win. But there were many good entries so judging must have been quite hard.
Looking at the pictures now make me feel like having a pot of tea. Hehe... But I'll control myself (for now) and just talk to you a wee bit longer.
I have been knitting and crocheting a little. But my arm and shoulder gets really sore pretty quick nowadays. I've been told that pregnancy may cause carpal tunnel so I've been careful not to overdo things. This, however, means that progress on my projects are moving at a snail's pace.
I started this baby kicking/sleeping bag for Yasmin in late May and I'm only halfway done. :(
Do you recognise the yarn? It's the sock yarn that Vivian jelly dyed for me. Pretty isn't it? If you missed Vivian's tutorial, you can check it out HERE
. It's so cool how you can dye yarn using ordinary jelly crystals and the microwave.
Anyway, fingers and toes crossed that I get the sleeping bag finished before my munchkin is born. It's less than 5 weeks away! Boy, oh boy, time flies when you're having fun.
Keep those hands busy and stay warm everyone. Chat again soon. Ta taaa!
