I sold two tea cozies this past weekend to a woman from Moscow! It makes me smile to think that one will warm her mother-in-law’s teapot in Moscow, another her mother’s teapot somewhere in France! The design began as a paper cutting. I call it my Haiku House finch Tea Cozy. The haiku reads:
Curious house finch
Tastes the ripe crabapple —
Daylight grows short.
I’m working on a new online shop that will feature my katazome work. If all goes smoothly, I plan to launch it sometime in November.
