Ok, so WiP number two is this tea cozy. I saw the magnificent ones Alice has made over at Crochet with Raymond and I really, really, really, REALLY wanted one for my lush cream enamel teapot.
So nearly finished, just the small matter of getting the flowers on in a pleasing arrangement.
Trouble is my flowers just look messy to me, even if you disregard the loose ends.
They don't look so untidy close up or in the flesh fortunately.
Oh I do love this helebore flower, I rather wish I'd done the whole lot in different colour helebores.
I quite like the butterfly too.
I know someone who likes this far more than I do, I think I'll give it to her and do a different one for me... once I finish all my other WiP's. I have yet another to reveal soon, and probably several more after that.
Must thank GW, Heather and Coco Rose before I forget, as I now know how to make hearts (and more) on nearly every (what's the word I'm after?) .....every.....? I could now do it in Windows if I wanted, and on facebook, and on blog comment forms and here on my own bloggity blog. Look at this lot:
I'm so chuffed! If my blog becomes over graffitified then you must tell me to stop, I can see myself becoming way too trigger happy with these "special characters".
I promised photo's yesterday, these were taken when Mini Cuckoo was two days old.
