Tea for Tuesday

Well life has gotten away and I haven't posted tea for a while now since my birthday on Nov 8 - 2016

On Monday I was lucky to be a hair model for a friends daughter who is a hairdresser and needed a head for an exam. She did an awesome job and I got  to see a new part of town that I had never been to before. I got there 2 hours too early as hubby needed me to take him to work and I wasnt going to drive back home then drive back down again in peak hour.

 The lovely newly opened and owned cafe that is thriving with business 

Thats the hairdressers next door. 
So I sat at the cafe next door and had breakfast and knitted a dish cloth while I waited. I have been busy knitting my heart away doing dishcloths. I have made 14 so far in January. Will showcase the dishcloths in another post as well as links to the patterns for those who like to knit.

Last year I started knitting these in October and gave them away for Christmas presents. They were a hit but I didn't have enough and couldn't knit fast enough. So this year I thought I'd get in early and start now to make them. I was only aiming for 1 a week and not to put myself under too much pressure. I surprised myself and tripled my count. I started a challenge over at Down To Earth and got everyone going.

February is also Lettermo month for those of you who have heard or participated before so these are posted in another post.

  4. Oh Bridget, I was delighted to see you at T this week. We have missed you.

    How nice that you have managed to get a new hair do for free. That's awesome.

    I was very impressed with your breakfast. It looked yummy, and that tea pot was out of this world. So different in its style, I really sat up and noticed right off.

    Thanks for joining us for T this Tuesday. Look forward to many more.

  6. A free hair do sounds great to me, it must have been good to see how all the other hairdressers styled their models hair.
    Your breakfast looked yummy.
    Happy T day

  7. Hi Bridget, long time no see. Fab that you got a new hairdo (and free too!). (Photo?)
    Your croissant and coffee looks very inviting and makes my mouth water (It is nearly lunch time here)
    The knitting looks very nice. I will look out for your next post so I can have a look at the link.. I love knitting but I don't seem to sit down much and when I do it is at the computer... Perhaps knitting a dishcloth is a reachable goal.
    Happy T-Day,
    Lisca

  9. What a cute little cafe. Looks right down my alley :) I think it's interesting that your head provided the canvas for her work :) Happy T Tuesday!

  10. So nice to meet you, Bridget. I'm rather new to the T Party group. Belated happy birthday! Mine was Dec. 24th. I look forward to learning more about your art & crafts.

    P.S. Fiji and the South Pacific are on my bucket list. Really - the only place (per se). Lots of things I want to do yet, but places - the South Pacific is it.

    Happy T Day!

  12. Looking forward to seeing the dishcloths. I usually crochet mine as I'm much faster at that than knitting. I'm also not very good at following patterns unless they are extremely simple!!!
    Happy T day!
