Colourful Fair Sneak Peek

My hooks are red hot these chilly days as they are busy making stock for our Christmas Spirit Fair on Sunday. Much of my produce is inspired by the cold in the sense that it’s things to keep things warm be that people’s heads or tea and coffee pots! Everything is made in pure yarns like Alpaca, wool and some silk blends too. Here is a sneak peek at a few of the tea-cosies and some hats too.

I have still to do all the finishing, but the stock is building up just nicely and one thing is certain, my busy hands are not cold these days!

    Very cute! My poor tea pot is naked! Had a dress once, but has been since felted down, so does not fit anymore. Or did my tea pot get fatter? ;o)

    Thanks Monika, they are fun to make! In this house the tea cosy is a raggedy auld thing that will soon have to be changed… One day! 😉

  3. Did you have to re-stock up from Saturday to Sunday? I hope so. 🙂 Good luck at the market.

    It was just a one day event, so there was no stocking up but I near enough sold out…
