Every week I will be uploading images from my tea cosy collection and any Teaparty Performances that will be happening over the coming months.

This tea cosy was found in my favourite antique shop in Hobart, Tasmania about 9 years ago. It's a crazy patchwork cosy filled with fabric scraps...the ultimate 'mend and make do' object! I love it, it's so worn and tea stained and still manages to maintain a cheerful personality...if a tea cosy can be said to have a personality?!!

The other side of the cosy. I suppose I ought to mend parts of it...I just like it the way it is!

This is a tea cosy I made recently for the girls at Love & Clutter in Hobart, Tasmania, to thanks them for selling my textile stuff so well over the past year! ( I photographed this cosy in the dining room of our new home, a largish farmhouse in the north of Tasmania, with its sprawling views of sheep and general farm life and mountains, etc, it's a damn fine location and is proving fruitful and inspirational as the new Teacosy* Revolution Headquarters.......first this dining room, then THE WORLD!!! (To tea-room-infinity and beyond!!) More Revolution updates to come...if there is anyone reading this blog?? Please leave me a comment sometime so I know I'm not talking to just myself!!!

Wandering along Taroona Beach, pondering the idea of travel and how it affects one's understanding of one's own creative processes and how important technical skills are in realising one's an artistic sense....lovely sky that day!!
