Afternoon Tea



This is my latest coffee/tea cozy.



I really enjoyed making this one-I just love the colors. Somewhat muted, toast, dusty pink, soft yellows.

with my "white buttons"

I also changed the design from the previous sleeves I've made. This one has a 'straight edge'~instead of the usual rounded end I usually do.
The yellow fabric has a faint lace print on it.

The inside is a grey~blue, olive, and a beigy color floral motif and it has a velcro closure.

I really enjoyed laying out the little applique pieces, choosing which ones I want to use, where to place them,the buttons, the ribbon...it seems so simple yet there is a lot of decision making -lol.

Anyway-this one is hard to part with, but I'll try ; )

The lighting was pretty good today so I took lots of photos.

Looks like I will not make my self imposed 10 things this week quota by Monday. More like 2, unless I get to work very early tomorrow!
