President Michael “T” Higgins Tea Cosy

Michael "T" Higgins knitted tea cosy

Michael "T" Higgins knitted tea cosy

This little guy was designed and made by Veronica Costello who very kindly lent it to us for the duration of our Tea Cosy Competition.  Veronica gave one to the President and apparently he loves it!

You could visit him and, at the same time, come and view the over 60 tea / caffetiere / mug cosies which were entered.  They were knitted, crocheted, felted, sewn and the imagination and craftsmanship exhibited is astounding!  We would love it if you would vote for your favourite – we have voting cards here in the shop.  All the proceeds of the competition go to St Brigid’s NS.

Mervyn from Yeats Country Antiques on Francis St brought this over to the shop a few days ago to let it hang out here a while.   It is only 30″ high.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice – it’s patina is truly beautiful.  I think it might need some work though……

Lace Blocking wires

Lace Blocking wires

The lace blocking wires have finally arrived.  These ultra fine wires are extremely flexible for your curvy lace edges.  Made from an amazingly flexible wire with memory, they will not rust, corrode, tarnish or kink easily.  Can be used for scalloped edges as well as straight edges.  Arch and curve them as you wish – they will return to straight.
