Crafting 365 / 36 - Round like a circle in a spiral...

... like a wheel within a wheel... That song has been going round my head like crazy as I've been finishing off my current project. Circle after circle, round and round, stitching, stitching, stitching. After a big final push and several ribbon-based tangles, I have finally finished it! the biggest mobile I have ever made (and possibly one of the largest things I have ever made, too).... proper photos another time but here it is in a big heap:

In other news, my moustache obsession continues apace as I have been listening to Hercule Poirot mysteries on the radio (tis Agatha Christie month on BBC7, you know) and I have treated myself to this little beauty of a t-shirt from the lovely John Allison:
It seamlessly combines my moustache-madness and my crazy love of all things tea related making it therefore perhaps the perfect t-shirt for me. The tea love has also driven me to purchase this little treasure from Seaurchin:
(she is making it into a brooch for me). How darling is that? I love the thought of wearing it with one of my "I love tea" badges (I always say about those that they are "declaring my political allegiance") and I think it will look mighty spiffy on my winter sweaters :)

You've got me humming that song now! (I don't know the words...) It looks fabulous and I'm looking forward to seeing the mobile in all its colour-soaked glory.
That t-shirt may has well have been custom made for you: was it? Your tea obsession, which seems perfectly fine to me, has certainly helped you find some gorgeous pieces of loveliness.
I'm off to put the kettle on ...

I love the little teapot. I too have an obsession with all things tea related. I want one of those now; see what you've done!

Not a custom t-shirt, no. Tis one of John Allison's lovely designs available at - I have far too many of his t-shirts already and initially resisted that design but since I have become moustache-obsessed I could resist it no longer! :D

That t-shirt is amazing (poirot being a legend)! & the little teapot is lovely! You keep making me drink more tea damn it! :D I feel inspired to do some more art featuring tea... while drinking tea... tea mmmm.... *shuffles toward kettle*
