Hello and Sending Love

Rudbeckia

As much as this space and the friends I have made here continually fill me with joy, I am not ready yet to return 100%. But I do want to dip my toe in, say hello and thank each and every one of you who have reached out to me and to Diane in so many lovely and heartfelt ways during these past two months. I have been completely overwhelmed by the out-pouring of love, prayers, warm hugs and reminders of friendship that have been sent our way - that are still being sent our way.

Bobbi Lewin Teaches Me To Crochet Tea Pot Cozies to Fit My Oddly Shaped Tea Pots!

Completed Tea Pot Cozy!

I am so excited to share my first ever tea cozy I can't stand waiting another minute!

Seriously, this project has been the most rewarding project I have engaged in so far this year. That is primarily because I literally learned to make a tea pot cozy without a pattern; and the experience left me feeling empowered! I have the tools now to make a crocheted (and most likely a knitted) tea pot cozy for any tea pot of any shape!
