I’m a little tea pot

Short and pretty,

I managed to make a beautiful cover for the tea pot as promised,

My hooky mojo had not quiet returned but as this was a birthday present for my other sister Aurora I needed to get it finished. I was rather naughty with this present, her birthday was in August. Oh my goodness I hear you gasp, she did know she was getting something and I did keep telling her it was coming. What makes the lateness of this present even worse is that I had my birthday in between hers and the giving of this present. But I  am glad to say that when she received it she was thrilled to bits and it has taken pride of place on the shelf.

I used the garden party pattern for the cosy but I did modify it slightly as my tea pot was larger. And I have to say being proud of myself would be an understatement, that I managed to knit this on 2 circular needles, having never even used one circular needle before, I will definitely be trying this again it was super quick and easy.

I love hooking though so the flowers and leaves were all hooked up. I couldn’t find a pattern that was simple and straight forward and quick so I just made it up as I went.

Also along the theme of tea my belle-mère gave me these lovely tea cups and plates, to celebrate our engagement.

These little tea cups belonged to her mother and have been handed down through generations. There was a lot of oohhh’s and aaahhh’s as I unwrapped each one of these divine little treasures. I absolutely love them and they are on display in my kitchen now, I can’t wait to use them. They are true vintage and she just knew that I would love them being the only one in the family that is vintage and retro inspired, she has even promised me the crystal cabinet as no one else will want it. lol.

I would also like to say a big thank-you to all the wonderful comments everyone leaves here, I do love reading them and I do try to get back to everyone. I love discovering new blogs to read through comments and I love keeping in touch with bloggy land friends. Also a big thank-you to everyone for the congratulations on our engagement.
