And I Thought It Couldn't Get "Cosier" Around Here!

Yeah well as I said because life at home is near perfect comfort and leaving it is getting harder and harder I might have found another level of comfort that is going to be ever more challenging to join in the outside brouhaha. A real nest to curl up with a good book with a warm pouch at my feet. I don't even need a background music as the gurgling sound of the fountain just is enough for the extra peace of mind.
Well of course a cup of tea is always good with a muffin or such in the afternoon. My figure might suffer from the inaction but boy does that feel good. So anyway remember my escapade to the Shibori Dragon? I had gotten a nice colorful book to make "Wild" tea cosies. I have always looked for a cozy over the years and couldn't find what I had in mind, they were all too cozy cutesy if you know what I mean. That was then and this is now.....

I have made a Wild Tea Cozy with a crochet hook and a mix of fun yarn that I had around the house.


It is the "Sunflower Cozy" which for mine it doesn't fit the title so I am renaming it "Le Chardon" (The Thistle) due to the colors I used.
Now I will not have to go back so often to fill the teapot with hot water, right. So more opportunity to keep focused on the pages and the stillness of the present.
Peace is addictive and can endanger  one's social life if you are not careful with it. Who know!!!???

Both wild and cosy!

I see Loani Prior has another book due out - How Tea Cosies Changed the World - sounds good too.

Thank you Margaret, you are so right. Also thank you for the update on another Loani Prior. I shall look forward to change the World with her cosies.
