Several in the family needed new tea cozies. That happens to be one of my specialties. I decided to modify them a bit this time around and added some embroidery to the one for mom.
Here it is finished. I thought it looked like something from LL Bean. Many thanks to Jess for all her inspiration this fall.
Auntie C came to the rescue at the last minute and volunteered to knit a sweater to complete this outfit:
Andrew painted ornaments into which we fitted pictures of the children. He gave these out to each member of the extended family.
I really did enjoy getting the chance to do something with my hands. I hope in the coming year that I will continue on with more embroidery, a few more tea cozies, and perhaps a few other things I have not yet tried.
