Why do some teapots and coffeepots evoke a happy feeling by just looking at them? I don't know, but they have that effect on me. I also love stitch patterns of them and of teacups, and I love to drink tea. The problem with teapots is that they don't keep the tea hot without a cover. While I was working on my tumbler quilt yesterday I got the idea of using the tumbler pattern to make a tea cozy. I think it came out pretty cute.
It's lined and has batting so it works well, and the fabric makes me smile.
Hurricane Irene has already had her effect on the east coast. When I went grocery shopping today, the store was busier than usual, and the line at the gas pumps caused me to drive away without getting any. Be prepared. Even though my area isn't supposed to be hit badly, it still means bringing in anything that could be blown about, and then next week bringing it all back out. Thanks alot, Irene.
