Coronation Tea Cosy

Just in time for the King's Coronation I knitted a tea cosy in patriotic colours - red, white and blue.

That should keep the teapot warm while I'm watching the Coronation on TV in a couple of weeks.  Isn't time flying by!

I've also got this Union Flag cross stitch which I made ages ago.  I love it!  You can read more about it on a previous blog post here.

Perhaps French Fancies weren't the best choice of cake!

Love, Liz

Spring Greens

I fell in love with this cute tea caddy - the colours just spoke to me and I just had to have it.  It is just so spring-like!  Obviously I needed to stitch some spring cross stitch bits and pieces to go with it, so I immediately went to my go-to place for perfect cross stitch patterns - the lovely Melisa's blog - Pinker n'Punkin Quilting & Stitching.

I've stitched many of Melisa's free patterns before and knew I'd find something on her blog.  I love this house - Dorothy Mae's Spring House - find it here.  I changed the colours (hope you don't mind, Melisa) to match the spring colours on the tea tin.

I also found this Spring pattern with a cute bunny on Melisa's blog and again changed the colours to match my tin.  You can find it here.

I love how this little vignette has turned out.  Thank you Melisa for the lovely patterns.  I think I need to knit a tea cosy to match now!

(The tea tin is available in other beautiful colours and can be found on Amazon.)

Love, Liz
