Not Another Tea Cosy?

Over the years I've made dozen of teacosies. Some for charity  [here and   here] others for friends and family [Here

And even some which won a place in a prestigious exhibition [I still can't believe itBut this summer I have been taking a tea cosy apart. It's a vintage linen one, printed with an embroidery design. I have been repurposing it to form the basis for a piece of needlework which will be a small part of a friend's much larger project. Apart from the green bugle beads I've not had to buy any other materials. I cannot reveal more about this project right now - but this is my progress so far.
More details in the Autumn! 
[on the subject of crafts, the latest series of Repair House, 6.45 BBC 2 has been great] 


  1. I have a list of things that we would like to take to the Repair shop!

  2. I can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Tea cosies! I remember we used to have one when I was growing up, when the afternoon tea was actually poured from a tea pot! These days, I make my tea in a cup and not in a tea pot. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.
