Tea cosy crazy!

A little while back a friend of mines mum asked me to knit her a tea cosy.  It was a very short and sweet brief 'any colour any design' :-P After establishing she likes pastel colours I went with a cream tea cosy with blue flowers!

This was the result!  I decided I should try and make more tea cosies because who doesn't want to have cosy tea? :-P  I have lots of ideas but trying to  put them all in to practise is harder than I imagined!

These are the two I have actually managed to finish!  I just need to try and get good photos of them which is a nightmare as I'm either in work during the day or its raining when I'm off :-P

These are two WIP I have!  The teal one is going to have a grey pom pom I think!  I haven't quite decided yet!  The bottom one is actually a terrible photo as its a lovely mint green in real life!  I think this one will have flowers on, maybe little cherry blossoms or something!  If anyone is wondering these are available to buy ;-)

And here is a photo of me with my super cool pen that I literally HAD to buy :-P Like I need another novelty pen!!

Falling Ill

Hi guys,

I've been away from Blogger for far too long now!  Christmas was a crazy busy time in my day job and I had to take some time to myself.  Christmas is always a hard time for me after the loss of my parents a within a year of each other a couple of years ago.  But as always I'm back now (fingers crossed this time), and hoping to at least get a Blog a week out!  Not too much to ask I think!

I'm currently in the process of making some cards to send back to people who sent me lovely creations over Christmas :-) It was so nice to receive those!  Everything seems to take me longer than it really should haha!  I'm also trying to come up with some new projects for my store!  I've been working on a first full jumper!  It's going well and it actually fits!

I'm thinking of going back to uni to study part time but I'll go in to this more when it gets nearer the time ;-)  It's exciting and scary because I haven't been to Uni in 10 years but at least I will feel like I am using my brain properly again!

Most recently I have taken ill,  it came on by surprise and was quite scary at the time.  I have something called Bells Palsy were the left side of my face won't move properly resulting in an eye that won't close properly and a wonky smile.  I'm on medication though and I'm feeling much better.  Hopefully the nerves in my face will heal properly and there won't be too much if any permanent damage!

In my next post I will put some pictures of what I've been doing in the last few months!  Take care everyone :-)
