The inspiration for my Geranium Tea Cosy pattern
I just love Geraniums, reminds me of my homeland, Italy. Geraniums everywhere during Spring to Autumn. I have them in my garden terracotta pots & have been meaning to make a tea cosy for over a year now. After a lot of thought on how to go about it (and finding the time) after all the excitement of the announcement of me finally becoming a grandmother, I have finally put my idea into practice. I have the pattern available for you at my website: https://www.tbeecosy.com/product/geranium-tea-cosy, as well at Etsy, at this link: https://www.etsy.com/…/sho…/Nowmine/tools/listings/498499489
I am now busy on the same pattern, but on more subtle colors, for those that like a more ‘calmer’ look, yet not compromising on the ‘realism’ of the plant. I will upload a photo once it is done
I have also attached my inspiration photo I used to make up my pattern, you be the judge, did I get it right?
