Needlework Tuesday - Who Lives in a pineapple under the sea - or on my teapot
Why should I be purchasing new supplies, when I have so many sitting and waiting. Probably because I have forgotten about them. While I was tidying, I found a bag with two skein a a gold/orange worsted weight yarn from my sister. I recalled that I wanted it for a pineapple tea cosy.
Since there is no better time than the present, I grabbed some needles and started in.
It was fun to make, specially the leaves. They really do add a funky touch. It is a small cosy and fits a 2 cup pot.
Ludlow Quilt and Sew that shows inserting the metal measuring tape. At my guild they wanted us to put in the tapes so that they curved inward and didn't make the snapping sound.
These bags will have some toiletry articles added and then they will be delivered to Mary's Place at the YMCA in Kitchener, Ontario. They operate an emergency shelter for those in need of temporary housing.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
i mess up last week and forgot to put up Mister linky. Feel free to add a linky for this week and one for last week. I don't want to miss any of your projects. Have a great week and if the weather co-operates, I hope you spend some time in the fresh air like I've been doing.
