Italian lessons

... that's what I was supposed to be doing last night. I drove all the way to the other side of town, picked up my friend and arrived at the hall to find out that it was cancelled. The lady who was supposed to be teaching us was sick. She tried to get a hold of everyone, but didn't have our phone numbers (just email). There she was, standing outside waiting for everyone so she could apologize. She should have just put a sign on the door and gone home to bed. Poor thing!

We'll try again next week.

In between posting last night and leaving for the lesson, I made this:

It's a tea wallet.

And I'm adding it to the giveaway loot.
I've been wanting to make one of these for a while because I think they're so darned cute. It was so easy, I think I'll make more for gifts. I'm thinking thank-you gifts or stocking stuffers for next Christmas.
I should have been doing other things, I'm sure, but with only an hour to spare I had time to make this and eat supper before I left. Time well spent? I think so!
If you haven't entered the giveaway, go and comment on yesterday's post. You have until Sunday!

I am a BIG tea drinker and would love something like this. If I'm not the winner, will you be able to do a tutorial on this OR direct me to the pattern? Sorry your class was cancelled, but you spent your evening doing something great (for us) anyway!!!

How CUTE is that?! So? What's the pattern or is that your own "creation"???

LOVE that tea wallet! The fabric is cute, cute, cute.

That poor teacher ... at least she cared enough to show up and make sure everyone knew the class had been cancelled.

Hope you have a nice weekend and don't have to spend much time doing you-know-what.

That is so darn cute! I only drink tea at home. I like my teapot. What a shame about your Italian classes! Have a great weekend.
Hugs and Kisses :)

I have been wanting to make some of those - have the pattern - and just haven't had the energy!

Cute, cute tea holder. What a clever idea.

So sorry your Italian lesson was cancelled. Hope the instructor feel better soon, so you can add yet another thing to you schedule. You must have a huge calendar to keep track of all that you do!

Have a great weekend.

What a great idea! I hate going out and ordering tea and they don't have anything that I like.
