Well lads n' ladies! Can you believe it? I've got only 2 weeks left til our due date!!! I popped into the doctor's yesterday and I'm delighted to tell you all is good in the hood! Head down, heart rate strong, blood pressure normal - the main thing, my darlin' baby is healthy and growing bigger by the day! I thought i'd celebrate by having some tea and toast in the sunshine! :)*
Usually I'd make my tea in the mug (I know...sinful!) but i made myself this tea cosy and I was dying to use it for the first time. You can find the pattern details in the latest issue of Sew Hip!
I decided to veer off the original design and funk it up a bit with some lettering applique and by adding buttons and beads to the finished design. The toast was very good by the way, almost burned (just the way i like it) and slathered with marmalade. If you like your marmalade chunky and slightly bitter then i can't recommend Aldi's Grandessa brand highly enough. It's pure delicious!
My darlin' pooch, Mitzi snuck in deftly for the jammy crusts!
a couple of close-ups of the finished detail...
Lined and quilted using a vintage tablecloth - given to me by Sarah from Redpossum. She's also opened another etsy shop for clearing her stash of vintage fabric, do have a peek!! :)
AND FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON'T DRINK TEA >>>>
<<< KEEP YOUR HEAD COSY INSTEAD!!! ;P
