Winter is here

Well it's been a while between posts, but I've had some fun crafting this afternoon and thought what better reason to blog is there??

Winter had peaked its little frosty head in a bit early this year. The quilts are getting plenty if use, the slippers are on and the tea pot is getting plenty of action. But don't you just hate it when your only one cup into your pot and its going cold! By the time your pouring the third it's all cold and not at all meeting its winter night requirements. So, to ensure plenty of warm tea this winter I have made myself a cosy! And it's reversible, which I'm a little chuffed about. Will venture to make a trivet tomorrow.

This is it with the pink side showing

And now with the alternative purple.

I had so much fun with the free motion quilting, and am somewhat impressed with my stippling skills. My discovery the other week that the bobbin allows a different colour on the bottom vs top thread meant I was able to easily blend the quilting cotton!!

Well, now I'm off to have a shower and a pot of warm tea!!! Have had it sitting, warming with water and cosied while we had dinner. Another invaluable tip of tea drinking in winter - be sure to pre warm your pot and cup!!
