Tuesday stitch and bitch - A tea cosy for Joe

A friend came over today for a day of crafting, we used to call it Tuesday knitwits but we're not really knitting at the moment, hence the name change. We've recently resurrected the Tuesday as sometimes life gets in the way and we hadn't had a get together, last week was the first one we've had for a while. I was rapidly trying to finish Sue's Blooming flower cushion last week in time for her birthday the very next day so that's what I was doing. My friend wanted to make a tea cosy from recycled blankets and she started it last week and finished it today. I do have a stack of UFO's and intend to get those finished soon, I might set a challenge for any of you to join me, so watch this space. Is it physically possible to finish one project before starting another?
I wasn't in the mood for the UFO's today however and decided to make a blanket tea cosy too, this time for Joe, so it had to be a bit manly cos he's such a 'bloke'! All up from start to finish it took me about 3 hours to make.

Back soon as I've been bit of a slack Alice in the blog department!

  4. I agree with Caitlyn, I'm not into twee crafts and that cosy is dead funky and lovely. x
