It's been raining here for the last few days but as it stopped this morning I thought I would take my morning coffee to the beach - all tucked up in its new coffee cosy. I've been playing around with this pattern for ages and lots of versions have ended in the bin, but I think I have it finally right. The outer fabric is linen (of course) and the inner is denim and it is insulated with two layers of a material called Insul Bright which is heat resistant - so it keeps my coffee hotter longer and well as protecting my hands. And it really works!
And I was rewarded with this view and a turtle popping up for a breath of air.
