Cozy Cosy

There's not been much happening at the old homestead lately. I think it might be Shop Hop letdown. Or maybe that there is so much pollen everywhere that my head doesn't know what to do. 
I have been cleaning up and clearing out things at home, though. Lots of cleaning and clearing. I brought a large stack of books and magazines to work to share with the Divas. Just stuff that I had that I knew I would never open again. I love sharing.
I was going through my kitchen cabinets this morning and ran across these adorable egg cups that I bought several years ago. I won't be sharing these. :)

How cute is that? Sweet Peter Rabbit and the perfect little spot for an egg and some toast sticks. But it really needed a little something extra. Something cute. Something practical, yet fun. Something like this:

An egg cosy!! 

To keep the egg warm while the toast is being made. 

So, that when the egg is opened, it's still all warm and yummy inside.

And perfect for dipping into!

Off to the sewing room I went, grabbing a few scraps of Pam Kitty Morning, some bits and bobs of other scraps and some leftover batting. A quick sketch of a pattern was made, a quick stitch up was done and voila! An egg cosy fit for a queen, complete with a tiny bluebird button from my button box. As there are three more egg cups, three more egg cosies need to be made. It'll be just a little distraction from the task at hand. :)

Oh how SWEET! That little egg cosy is the perfect touch. I LOVE the Peter Rabbit dishes. I have several sets (but no egg dishes) patiently waiting for the arrival of grandchildren. ;-D
