The body of the tea cosy is finished. Now for the fun part ... crocheting flowers and leaves to adorn my turquoise cosy!
Using this easy pattern for the cosy, and then inspirations for flowers and leaves from three of my favourite blogs ( love, love, and love them) I made up roses, daisies and teeny flowers, big leaves and small leaves and linked leaves...
Next, I started placing the flowers and leaves here and there, playing with different looks and ideas, too much?? too little?? And to add to the mix, once I started crocheting the flowers and leaves I became totally caught up and couldn't stop, I find I really enjoy making small items, like flowers and squares and hearts. So I had a nice selection of flowers and leaves from which to choose.
Oh and by the way, thank you so much for all the kind comments about our adored doggies; Dexter Dog and Layla the Princess send their love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
