Summer holiday closure

Happy summer solstice 2017 to us all -- despite the endless rain where I am. A head's up that the FlockofTeaCosy shop will be closed from June 23 to August 1 for summer holidays down the lake.  Wuhoo.  Even if it rains a lot we're going to have a great time. Most...

Mousepad & coasters

Been in the workshop this week checking out supplies, sorting out the new workshop setup, trying to find where I stashed things during the move (!) and sewing up some orders and new things from the boxes of off-cuts. One of the things that emerged were a few...

Spring awoke, shop re-opens

I managed to arrive back in the city from a month in Spain the week everything here was in glorious bloom -- lilacs, honeysuckle, tulips et al.  The annual miracle and a headful of swoon-worthy aromas.  Yes, even in our stinky urban sprawl, the sweet floral scents...

The flock's "Ribbed" style tea cosies have a wonderful puffer-fish expandability -- but it wasn't until quite a while after I designed them that I finally fully stuffed one of the Standard size and measured its circumference. Woof -- a  37" circumference!  Allowing an...

New Year’s egg cosy…

[retweet][/retweet] Happy New Year to you!  On this brand new first day of 2017 (and it's a glorious, blue-sky, sunny day where I am) which happens to be a Sunday, even more perfect as a lazy, long-breakfast kind of a day, a mention that the flock's small tea cosy...

Ship Deadlines soon…

[facebook] [retweet][/retweet]   There's no snow yet here, but I'm still starting to feel the holiday cheer.  Making the first batch of shortbread today. Next Monday is the shipping deadline for regular shipping to destinations in North America -- ie: Canada and...

Tea Tour: Yixing tea pots

[retweet][/retweet] If you drink oolong tea you've probably heard of yixing clay teapots.  They are small unglazed teapots for preparing small, fresh infusions and reinfusions of oolong tea and come in a number of different natural clay colours from the region of...

Multi-coloured tea cosies

[retweet][/retweet] Finally had some time at the work table the other day -- more of the colourful "Ribbed" cosy design in the small size. These ones are sized for a small 2-cup teapot but because the design cleverly expands like a puffer fish it can accommodate one a...

Reasons to love felt…

[retweet][/retweet] It was love at first sight for me, because of its density and thickness and its vibrant colours, but a number of the reasons to love this beautiful, non-woven wool fabric are invisible.  It's a renewable resource. Sheep continually grow their...
