This tea cosy for my auntie was special Smiley (like 14 hours special, I can't even express how happy I am that she likes it after all that work, whew!).

If I am making a complicated, detailed project like this for someone in my family who appreciates the work, I don't mind the hours and hours of labor.  I think about them with every stitch!
