Coral Reef tea cosy is done

I've finally finished it.  Two people want it.  I'm planning on making a series of landscape cosies and this is the first one.

This is a picture heavy post, a bit similar to this cosy, which is very heavy for a cosy.



Sea urchin & sea snake
more sea snake & stuff

hermit crab and starfish

I'm finally in the middle of quilting the tone it down quilt.  Maybe a couple more weeks to go.

Boring cosy

The next charity cosy is done. I don't like it much. It's boring. These are meant to be carnations. Pink is not my favourite colour. I could embellish this more, but given that it will sell for about $12, I won't bother.

Now to make a new base for the sunflower (stolen for the daffodil cosy). Ho hum.



Maybe more hyperbolic crochet (think coral) for the next one, although that is similar to the carnations. Something over the top anyway.

Too much fruit!

I've finished off another cosy. This one is number four for my mother in law's church stall? Two more are in progress.

No such thing as too much fruit?  This is my original design fruit basket tea cosy.
