Floral Bouquet



Just another wee crochet show-off. I felt that my smaller 3 cup tea pot was feeling a little neglected so a little Spring Floral attention was in order, plus I needed a cheerful pick-me-up!


I've used a pattern from Tales from Cuckoo Land, it's such a lovely quick and easy project. The roses come from here. It all looks so perfect when teamed with pretty vintage china. Now I just need a Sponge Cake to go with it.

I actually squealed when I saw it!!! It's absolutely gorgeous hon. I wish I could be there to share a cuppa with you. Will definitely add this cosy to my to-make list!!

Ooooo, thanks for following me- I had to come and see your blog and it's just perfect. I'm following you, too!
It's funny, I have been contemplating making a tea cosy for ages- yours is so cute and also, I recently crocheted a cowl and am working on one right now! ALSO, that stitch you've used- I've used this on a little vintage inspired phone cover recently too! AND, my little one has excema, so will be checking out your remedy I saw in a previous post!!
We must be twins of some kind!
Have a great weekend!

Oooh thank you for letting me know this was here so I could come over and gaze admiringly at your cosy. I love the different coloured roses on top. Lovely!

As for hook size, I can't remember, I usesd the one recommended on the band of my yarn. I do seem to hook loosely though. Ha ha, yes you're quite right putting 'hook' after 'I' sounds a bit dodgy!!!

Thankyou for taking a look at my blog & deciding to follow. I have scooted over to you & am so pleased I have. When I get back on Monday I'm looking forward to a proper look around (am supposed to be packing right now...) You make me miss NZ x

Very pretty and the roses are just adorable on top of this tea cozy. It must make tea time very special.

Just my shade of blue on the teapot cozy. It turned out great! I think I'm going to try your cowl pattern, even if it is summer here!
