Summer Sewing

For the past two summers I have joined my sisters and mother 
at my sister's cottage for a 'Crafting Retreat'.  
It is our gift to our mother for Mother's Day.


This year's projects included a tea cosy.  We lined the cosies with insulated batting, which had a layer of foil, to keep the tea warm.




We texturized, stenciled and painted tins to keep tea in.


We took a break and served 'high tea' in the forest!  We made mittens from recycled, felted sweaters.
