Make 50: Week 11 and Time for Tea!

Technically, this is week 12, but I missed last week, and I’m still on track for 50 things, so… never mind! Apologies for the photo quality today, still bonkers busy round here!

This is my item, which was made for the main item in the Time for Tea Swap with Jen (http://purplejenknits.blogspot.com), it has green tea leaves embedded inside, with tea bag, tea cup and teaspoon charms. I’ve just read on her blog that she likes it, hurray!

I also made her some purple knitting needles as her “crafty” item, along with some buttons I bought from my favourite button-dealer, Gill from Hollingdale Designs (http://hollingdaledesigns.folksy.com).

And in return I got…

A knitted tea caddy, which will come in useful for work and a teacosy, but actually fits my head as a rather cool hat! I got some great fabric and buttons and beads to use too, I think the fabric was a batik that Jen may have even done herself! I also got a selection of Earl Grey tea and some long-eaten Jelly Belly beans. I think Jen must have read about my previosu swap since these beans are my favourites and they came with my favourite brand of buttons too!

Thank you Jen!
