New Tea Cozy--Burgundy Taffeta and Lace

Well, I had a better day at the sewing machine yesterday. I put this new cozy together with few interruptions. I love the tassel trim on this one. It has just enough gold to complement the burgundy. Have a look:
I photographed it with my Royal Albert Old Country Roses teapot in this photo. I love the way the burgundy looks with it!

I'll be putting the finishing touches on a matching Tea Tray Cloth today. Hopefully, I'll have it in my shop by tomorrow.

Can you believe it's already August? My son heads off to college in 2 weeks. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet... I remember when he started Kindergarten. It seems like it was just yesterday. Where did the time go? And, my daughter starts High School this year. I'm thankful to have 4 more years with her at home. Laugh if you will, but my kids are so precious to me. I really enjoy being around them. (Although, I do not like my son's choice of music--Metal, but it's Christian Metal--don't know how you would ever know. But he has a heart for the Lord, so I guess it's okay.) DD and I had a fun "Girls Day Out" last Friday. We went to an antique mall to browse for a gift for a friend. DD loves old books--the way they look, so that's what she was looking at while I was looking at tea cups. Afterwards, we shared an order of Bread Pudding with Praline Sauce at the Tea Room. Sweet memories...

Karen, Your tea cozy is beautiful. I love the color and the trim you used. Isn't it wonderful when you can spend an afternoon with your daughter. I always enjoy that time with my mine.

Just beautiful and goes perfectly with the Old Country Roses.
Sigh, oh my they do grow up so very very fast. I don't think any mother would laugh at you for wanting to keep your babies near...mine are all grown up but are still my babies.

Beautiful work, Karen! Perfect choices of color and texture, too.
