Yesterday I went to the guild sewing session and I showed a few of my friends how to make a sweet little tea cosy , My friend Annette had gifted one to me and I showed the girls and they asked me to figure it out and show them how it is made . I did some measuring and mine is not quite as fancy as the one Annette made as hers is reversible with a lovely quilted Christmas theme on one side and nautical theme on the other . I brought along my FW to make one yesterday at sewing and this is what I made .
Here is Annette's
Christmas , so I have all the bases covered :-)The tea cosy I made on the 15/91 I left with the girls yesterday so no photo of that one . I had to leave early and just in case they needed a reference it was there for them . They are fun and quick to make and the girls were pleased as punch . We are planning on having a tea cosy display at our next quilt show , we had one this year as well and people seem to enjoy seeing them . Thanks Annette for the great idea and the great tea cosy .
I need to stop joining new projects , I was visiting Frances of Tea Time Creations and she was sharing her House project from Kaaren's QAL and also another Mystery QAL by Deana , I was smitten the moment I seen this one , how could I resist a quilt with houses and a clothesline between with little quilts hanging on them . Frances you are an enabler lol . It was very late in the month when I signed up and I had to really scramble as you needed to have at least one block completed to receive the next step in the mystery . I managed to get all three houses done , they are rather odd looking but I will call them whimsical , that should cover it :-)
Now on different note , Bill and I went to Truro a couple of weeks ago to see a miniature horse show . We have a neighbor close by who has five of them and they are adorable so when we heard about this show we thought it would be neat to see , I didn't know such a show even existed .
They pull these little carts through obstacle courses .
They are so neat to see and so friendly , more like dogs than horses in size as well as temperament . The owners might not appreciate that comparison .
Our weather has been strange lately and lots of storms have rolled in and out and I couldn't resist taking a picture of this sky the other evening .
It might be difficult to see it here but it was incredible at the time . Big rumbling clouds along the tree line with pink and lavender above , so pretty .
So that is it for me today , off to do a little cleaning as much as I would prefer to be sewing , these things are necessary at times :-)
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a terrific day .
