debbie jordan, elf4 said…
i have just recently found your blog and i luurve all your wonderful tea cosies - subsequently went browsing for your books, and put them on my santa wish list - unfortunately for me there wasnt one under the tree :( so if i dont win one, i will be out buying one very soon - i have a great collection of wacky teapots all waiting for their own 'unique' tea cosy! :)
Chartreuse said…
It would be just my luck to win another book I couldn't bear to part with - when I've just spent two weeks trying to discard some old tomes I no longer need or want, but only succeeded in clearing about 1% of my bookshelf space! Count me in anyway!
chaotick said…
I'm wild about your tea cosies - they give me grins on this snowy day!
lilly piri said…
Merry Christmas, Loani!
Becky said…

Hi Loani, I'm a friend of Nats, I'll like to join in for the give away. Sorry I don't have my own blog anymore.

Anonymous said…
Nat sent me over, too!
Love your work!
Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year!
Paula said…
Two beautiful photos. Indeed, you haven't changed a bit.

I won't be offended if you take me out of the running for a "pwesent". I live in the U.S. and postage might be a bit much. I do enjoy your blog; it's exciting to read a blog prepared so far from me.
Lis said…
Wow glad to meet you via Nat's giveaway and the bookj looks absolutely amazing. I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and thank you so much for this great giveaway, Lis x
Barbara S. said…
Love the photo of you and Benjamin bunny.
Thanks for the chance to win one of your books...very generous of you.
Hope your Christmas was merry. We are sitting under two feet of snow here in NJ, so it's a very white holiday at the moment.
teacosy said…
as I can`t come to see you in person (still saving up for the flights) as your living half way around the globe I would love to be picked for the PWESENT.
Wünsche euch ein Frohes Neues Jahr.

I love tea. I love tea cozies. And I love you!
quiltmom said…
You have a lovely name- I think the picture with you and your son is beautiful and you still are beautiful.
I have a son that is slightly younger than yours _He was born the Christmas of 1987. He was away this Christmas with his girlfriend and her family.
I think the tea cosies are just charming. Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway. I am going to leave a note on Nat's now. I have followed her blog for awhile now.
Warmest regards from a Western Canadian quilter,
Marcia W. said…
Nat sent me to your blog. Your photo with your son is lovely. Though also like your flapper photo too. Thanks for the nice giveaway. I need to go take a sip of my tea (not allowed at my computer - I'm a klutz). So, a tea cosie would be great to keep it warm. Happy New Year from very cold Florida (will be 18 degrees tonight).
Annie said…

Donna said…
Hi Loani
I just love you tea cosy and your very entertaining blog. I am currently attempting to make Roger Rampant at the moment which is looking not too bad, but I am going to book into your March workshop at Threads and More in Brisbane as I feel I would benefit from more technical advice!! Would love to win a pwessie too! Thanks for sharing your wonderful tea cosies with us - they always make me smile.
Cheers Donna
Justjen said…

Terry said…
Nat introduced me to you by getting me to knit a roses cosie.
DGs describes it as a beannie for she's (translate Grama) cup of tea.
It is next to the beer bottle (with glass stopper) from the Deniliquin Brewery. How Aussie is that?
Thanks for such fun.
Simone de Klerk said…

Gelukkig nieuwjaar!
