Tea Cozies off to Moscow

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! She bought them from my "old" Etsy shop, which features screen-printed items for the home. 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.
