UPDATE - I've picked a name from the hat that is random.org and it picked ........... comment no: 9.
Which is Blue Box Studio with:
Home made 'lemonade' - juice 3 lemons, add some of the zest as well. I'm a meany so for extra zing I also add the pulp from the lemon squeezer (without pips!). Add an equal amount of water. Chill till needed. Then I use about 1" in a tumbler, topped with a decent fizzy lemonade from the supermarket but soda water, tonic or still water works just as well, add ice ... and chill.
Off to make some more now!
Congratulations, I'll drop you a line now for your address and post your new tea cosy asap:)
Thanks to everyone for entering, and don't feel down about not winning this time, there will be plenty more to come.
Well it isn't really.
Still I'll plow on all the same.
Waaaay back before Christmas I received a commission order for a tea cosy and the only instructions were that it had to be red and white and .....
it had to look like a teapot.
Not round and appliqued or in the shape of anything else, just that it had to look like a teapot.
Of course I was happy to oblige, and I quite liked it so I made another for myself in yellow and I still quite liked it so I made another the same as the original commission ..... for one of you.
It's made to fit a standard four cup British teapot, but it also comfortably covers those new fangled tall cylinder pots which hold six cups.
Now I'm well aware that this is hardly the weather to be worrying about your tea getting cold, but stay with me for a second because by my reckoning it's really just keeping the heat in and something that is capable of keeping the heat in should also do a fair job of keeping the cold in. I can't be the only one who thinks this would look pretty cool with a nice cold jug of lemonade or even iced tea hidden underneath. Can I?
And all you have to do to enter is run to the end of the garden and back, all the while patting yourself on your head with one hand while rubbing your belly with the other and saying the alphabet backwards.
But because nobody in their right mind (not even me, and I'm a few dolly mixtures short of a quarter) would bother with that lot in this heat, I'll settle for a little comment telling me your favourite bevvy on a hot day:)
Cause I'm nice like that and I'm also very easily pleased.
I'll pick a name from a hat on Friday night and do the needful thereafter:)
Quick edit because I always forget to pop this in somewhere. The giveaway is open to everyone worldwide:)
