Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee is this June. Even though we are far removed from the British Isles and all the grand plans going on there… my sister has a grand plan of her own that is shaping up. A grand Jubilee Tea for those of us crazy Queen enthusiasts.
A few weeks ago Heather began crocheting a Jubilee Tea Cozy for the party. I, as usual, taking a cue from my older sister, was inspired to knit a Jubilee Tea Cozy for myself. My poor sister… honestly… I didn’t mean to copycat… I was just inspired! =)
I had a lot of fun knitting this. Whimsical things are often fun to knit, aren’t they! I got the idea for the buttons from a Cath Kidston bag… I wasn’t keen on carrying 3 colors across.
It’s not perfect… but I love it. It will definitely grace my teapot June 8.
What have I been reading? Well, I should say something related to the Queen. But alas, not directly. Currently I’m reading Past Imperfect by Julian Fellowes – again a suggestion from Heather. But recently I finished “Casting with a Fragile Thread: A story of sisters and Africa” and “The Last Resort” both memoirs set in Zimbabwe.
I must say I’ve been enjoying Past Imperfect very much. JK has even listen to a little this weekend and has been greatly amused by it. Julian Fellowes is a fantastic writer…
Joining with Ginny. Hop on over to read more yarn alongs.
