It Was A Cozy Sunday...

Repaired Tea Cozy

I managed to get a little bit accomplished yesterday, and still found time to put my feet up and relax. This little tea cozy wasn't difficult, and I enjoyed recovering the original, lined padding.

It was originally created by a loved one, so I wanted to keep as much of the original intact as possible. I also didn't want my part to be acknowledged, so I didn't sew one of my usual Brynwood labels to the exterior. (Instead, I wrote a blessing onto the stabilized back of the floral fabric. It will only be found if it's necessary to replace this cover.)

Preserved Lining Fabric

I applied the cover fabric in the same manner as the original, hand sewing it in place once I created it. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out, and I think it will be used for many more years to come.

Hickory Syrup Cooling Off
The first thing I actually did yesterday was make more hickory syrup. I began around 8:30 in the morning, and had it bottled and cooling by 1:00 pm. The whole house smelled of this fragrant syrup the rest of the day.
The sun was out and the temps were in the high 40's all weekend, so I did spend time outside all weekend with Tag and Bella. They're loving this nice weather, too, so I couldn't keep them inside. I had them running and retrieving, and they just hung around while I raked the driveway side of the yard, so we all slept well at the end of the day.
I already have a list going for this week. I put quite a bit of fabric in my shop last week, but I have more to do. I also have items I want to donate, as well as yarn to package up to send to Tammy in Virginia and Krisann in Florida. I'm sure if they don't use it, they'll share it with someone who will.
Time just seems to fly. This is already Easter week, and there's so much I want to get done this month. I'm gonna be a busy grandma! What's on your "to do" list?

Lovely Tea Cozy and how sweet and thoughtful to add your blessing inside. Outdoors with sunshine and Tag and Bella sounds wonderful. We do still have snow all around but this week promises lots of new rain. Today is Sunshine!!! Wonderful Week Dear...<3
