If ever there was a week for hunkering down indoors, this is it - rain, rain rain. The guilt I felt flipping the central heating back on this morning, was somewhat mitigated by cooking an enomous vat of stew, with a view to warming up the menfolk on their return home. Then, feeling smugly domesticated, it was time for a spot of sewing.
Tomorrow is the 2nd Birthday of Rosie's Tea Room, home of my much beloved and sanity retaining Thursday morning Needles and Natter group. I'm so looking forward to heading down tomorrow morning as I've missed the last few weeks with it being school holidays. I wanted to take a little something for Liz, the lovely owner who is always so welcoming to us (even when we get so rowdy that the window cleaner sticks his head in the door to tell us he can hear the laughter from down the street).
So I made a little cosy (just keeping my fingers crossed that the dimensions of the cafetieres at Rosie's are roughly the same as mine back home).
Did you spy the careful selection of buttons there? Couldn't resist the opportunity to slip in a crafty pun.
