A Crochet Tea Cozy

Good Morning. My thoughts today are swirling around needful things for this season's Holiday baskets. If you have followed Sewtopia for a while you already know that this is a Thanksgiving tradition for me. The Thanksgiving holiday frequently gets short changed because the great shopping extravaganza for Christmas overshadows the the pleasures of that day. Meeting up with long scattered family and friends means a one day event where we share our lives and our hopes for the new year.

I have a dear friend who shares my tea passions. While not part of our Thanksgiving group (she has her own family traditions) She will enjoy the gift I am sure. With the long Winter facing us, a nice new pot and tea cozy will buffer those chilly breezes. I have some special little things for her gift this year that I will not divulge here. (she reads here too)

So, this is one of two patterns I have uncovered to work up for the cozy. Looks quick and easy.  The clock is ticking........*click on the link below, then click on free pattern.
