In recent years she has taken up freeform knitting & crochet - and these incredible tea cosies are some of her creations. She doesn't write patterns down, she just makes them up as she goes. So these are all unique!
I love this series of Ronald Searle inspired cat cosies :
This eggplant cosy is my favourite - Rona actually grew eggplants in her garden so she could then sketch and paint them from life, and from this she created this cosy - it has a lot of embroidery on it, as well as knitting and crochet, and padding inside.
This Christmas Pudding tea cosy was inspired by a similar design in Killer Tea Cosies by A and D Wallis.
There's another photo or two on this post from 2006. She is one talented lady!
All cosies designed and made by Rona E Warner, fiber artist.
