Just seeing a cozy popped on a pot conjures images of the gentle patter of rain on a mossy cottage; mist-shrouded moors; warm and welcoming kitchens with a bit of bread and jam to go with that tea, please.
Everyone once in awhile the Anglophile really comes out in me, eh?
Truly - I adore them. All shapes & sizes, styles and attitudes. I like me my cozies.
So I took a break from studying sentence diagramming (Yep - I KNOW you all continue to be jealous of my summer studies):
Anyway, I took a break for this book:
Here's a Village Green cozy:
I can honestly say that I loved most of the patterns and liked all of them. Some would be so much work to make but I'm tempted anyway.
I do really need to make the red & green cozy on the front cover:
Tea cozies and dreams of England usually bring me right back round. ::wink::
Oh! Oh! If you even have nothing to do on a Sunday night, I want you to tune into In Plain Sight on USA Network.. It's on Sundays at 8 here in the mountain time zone, your times may vary, it's also repeated earlier in the day on Sundays. Anyway, it's a decent show that shot entirely in and around Albuquerque! It's so cool to see our landmarks (Presbyterian Hospital, Hiway Motal over on central with the cement brick decorations & painted bright turquoise). The skyline shots are awesome.
It's really cool to see our burgeoning TV and movie industry in NM finally taking off. Did you know there's a charter school opening this year just to train mid schoolers and high schoolers in tech work - cameras, set design and prep, etc. Because the industries know they will need techs and lots of them in about 5 years time. They plan to home grow them which is fine with me - more jobs for kids around here so they can stay in town without leaving to find better one.
Monk, Psych, Burn Notice, they'll all be back to USA in July. Yay! And Eureka's coming back to the Sci Fi channel as is Stargate Atlantis. My cup is beginning to run over....now it we could just see an Amazing Race or two, we'd be happy summer TV watchers.......
