Tea for Two anyone?....

I'M IN TEARS click to read the wonderful post
Mrs Thomasina Tittlemouse, Elizabeth has given my first crochet book,
one hell of a wonderful write up.

I can't thank you enough Elizabeth you have said everything I wished for the book....all that I hoped the book would do, inspire and help people enjoy the wonderful art of crochet.
I Thank you with all my heart and I cant express how pleased you have made me feel.
Thank you x

Yesterday we took a trip to our lovely shops in Shrewsbury, visiting one Vintage style shop Phil spotted a basket full of wool and the sign said £5 for the lot...well a bargain for sure.
 Mixed up with the wool was a tea cosy...with a bird on the top.
but it started me off on a flowery journey of tea cosies.
I have started with a very basic granny shell cosy and added one or two flowers for decoration, a complete cosy can be made in under an hour.....addictive me thinks!
Sorry I haven't been around for a couple of weeks, lots of thinking to do, lots of jobs I absolutely needed to do and lots of visitors....can't believe it's a couple of weeks since I last just flies by.
The vintage craft fair was great and I am thinking of taking a stand in the next one!!!!
On the way home we called at Ippikin wool shop in Much Wenlock and they had my book in stock, well one any way, they had sold all  of their first order except the one already's so exciting.
Thank you so much for the lovely, lovely private messages the comments on Amazon and Ravelry too.
Thank you, thank you, thank you it seems to have been given the thumbs up so far.
I'm really, really chuffed to bits.
Sorry but the free patterns a week are on hold for now...still trying to decide what to do.


  1. Thank YOU for writing the book Sue, it really is super! I hope "Granny Squares" is only the first of many books you come up with! Love your tea cosies here but my bath mat hexagon daisies are still in pole position! Must not stay up adding to them into the small hours, repeat must not ... !! E x

    1. I'm so pleased tat you like it...for now I thinking of doing a few individual patterns with extras before I think about another book, although it is a though in my head lol

    1. I did my best but was never sure it would be liked....beginning to dream of success so long as it inspires and a people give crochet a go is all I ask.
      But thanks for your confidence in me. X

  4. I love all those flowery tea cosies! They must be fun to make and so cheerful on the table!
    I'm so glad that your book is a terrific success! Yesterday, I made a star coaster from your book and just love it! I'm going to try and work out how to join them and make a table centrepiece to cheer up a plain coloured cloth of just a wooden table.
    Have a wonderful day, Sue!
