It’s a different world than when we closed the Flock of Tea Cosy shop for our winter break — but we keep washing our hands and carry on!

Mother’s Day 2020 – order by April 27th

Enjoying pots of tea is one of the daily comforts that keep us going, yes?  And fortunately — with thanks to our posties who continue to work during this pandemic — mail-order remains viable so Flock of Tea Cosy’s sleek modern wool felt tea and coffee cosies can still be yours.  Or your mother’s, perhaps more to the point.  Here in North America Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10, 2020.  Order by Monday, April 27th to be sure, although if you’re in a major urban centre the following Friday May 1st will likely be fine.


Physical distancing has certainly given us a lot of time to clear out those closets and get to spring cleaning.  I’ve also joined hundreds of other sewers making fabric masks for one of our local hospitals — as well as some extras for friends and neighbors.  And tried to find some time almost every day to keep up a watercolour painting practise, not all of them keepers, mind you. (WestofLunch shop or Instagram)  I know many with the gift of cooking well are busy trying new recipes and I really look forward to sampling when we can all finally start eating together again.  In the meantime, stay healthy and, in the words of my local MPP, “be nice, we’re all in this together.”
