A little sneaky peaky and a Tea Cozy

September comes to an end. I think I blinked and it was over. I found myself spinning in circles this past week as I ran from one thing to the next, not being able to focus on anything for too long. I think that has to do with my age too. I've heard it only gets worse. hee,hee,hee.

Here's a sneaky peaky of something I'm working on. I'll tell you more about it soon.

Also, I'm going to be carrying some new hand over-dyed wool from Weeks Dye Works in my shop. Ooooooooooo...I can't stop petting it! I will have solids, houndstooth and herringbone.

Of course, there will be lots of designs to make with it too. I'm not sure if I will sell it as the kits or as individual pieces. I find most people are buying kits nowadays. What are your thoughts?

I also wanted to share this incredible tea cozy with you. My Aussie friend, Connie, knitted this and shared the photo with me. Sooooooooooo sweet!

The pattern designer is Loani Prior from Australia. I do love those Aussie gals!

This is her book (one of them). You can get it HERE on Amazon.

Here is her website. If you are a knitter (wish I was!), you should hop over and check it out. Too fun! 

Alrighty then. Have a wonderful week and do something creative for yourself.

Hugs to you,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina too.

WOWSERS!!!!!! First of all, I love your sneaky-peeky posts because the end result is always so thrilling (and the colors remind me of food...) this one is BLUEBERRY pie à la mode.

OK, that tea cosy. I WANT. Tea Rat (do you know this character of mine?) needs this tea cozy. What a darling design!

Dear friend, thank you for visiting. May peace and kindness reside with you today!!!!

The sneaky peak looks tantalising and intriguing and really gorgeous!
To be honest, I mostly don't do kits anymore. When I just started out stitching I loved the kits as it came ready to go and easy to follow I find that I like to play around more! I'd my humble opinion, that you should offer both...
Love the cosy!

That one looks yummy!Lovely blue wool. Andy's mum had a run of knitting fun tea cosies - she sells all her things for charity - she'd love that one. And I agree with the lady above - kit/pieces you can attract both newbies and the prefertodoitmyselfers that

Another beauty and most enchanting sneaky peek from Michelle. The tea cozy was a big surprise ... oh how I wish I could knit that for my recently bought tea pot. Just gorgeous and I loved her blog with all the different cozies. Dream

As for me, lately I do like the kits better ... I haven't been to a quilt shop in a while as I am trying to use what I have .. imagine that. Hugs to you girl. Judy C in NC
