Strawberries and Cream

My mother-in-law made this Strawberries and Cream Tea Cozy for me for Christmas. Isn’t it gorgeous? Do you love receiving hand-made gifts as much as I do?

  1. I agree with hazelb! You’ll really be drinking your tea is style with I would love to make one. Any chance you can get a link to the pattern.

    • Thankyou! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find the pattern online, and I think it was published in a magazine a few years ago. I will try to get some additional information, but I haven’t had any luck so far. So sorry!

  2. Wow!! This is stunning! What a wonderful Mother in law you have there!! Maybe someone that knits will know how those were made, the bobbles. Very beautiful. Sandy

    • Thankyou, yes, my Mother-in-law is wonderful! I’m quite fascinated by the bobbles. I know how to make them in crochet, but no idea for knitting I’m afraid.

      • Maybe YouTube would have some videos to help you? I find that if I want to see/know something, it is usually there. Hope that helps! Sandy

  3. So sweet, lucky you! πŸ™‚ Handmade gifts really are a joy to receive and also to give – making a gift is always a good excuse to start another project… πŸ˜€

    • And btw, this is creepy: it seems like I’ve suddenly travelled forwards in time. It’s only 10:38 am here and I posted the last comment 7:35 pm. Whoa… πŸ˜€

      • Ha! I love that – I’ve never used making a gift as an excuse to start a new project, but I do think that’s a very good idea. πŸ˜€ I’m in Australia, so that might explain the weird time that your post came up as?

  4. How gorgeous! So glad to have found you. I don’t have a lot of time for crocheting but I try to fit it in as much and as often as I can as I find it soothing. I am now tagging along with you and will live my inner crochet life through you and your lovely work! πŸ™‚
