Tea cosy paradise

My favourite thing this Friday was spending time with creative friends taking an excursion across town to the Tea Cosy Exhibition - all for a good cause too. 400 tea cosies for sale to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
A small selection for you to enjoy.

There sure was a lot of inspiration here with many different styles and techniques displayed now I need a teapot to dress up.
Tonight is Friday Night Sew-In so while I'm inspired I am going to join the ladies and do a little creating myself.
Happy weekend - hope you find lots of time to spend creating.

Wow, the imagination knows no bounds! Quite the creative tea cozies out there. And to think I don't have a one, just use a dish towel!

that is quite a compilation! Very beautiful and creative -

I'm sure the donation will mean a lot to the cancer council. Very nice of you to help others in need.

Some of those are just amazing. I loved the chickens!

People's creatvity and talent never ceases to amaze me. I could spend hours looking at an exhibition like that (and would probably come home with several of them too!)

Thanks for taking the time to show us some of these wonderful tea cosies and the generous spirit of crafters.

I wish I could have seen this in person!
