As Hannah is only the other side of Sheffield, we decided to meet halfway at Meadowhall, and do an exchange over a drink. I'm not sure what they thought in the coffee shop, but the first thing we did was get out the tea pot and try it with it's new clothes.
I am so relieved to say, it fits, so redoing it was worthwhile. Now, if anyone else would like a cabled cosy for a Bodum tea pot, you know where to come.
A big thank you to Hannah for sending me photos, and giving me permission to use them. Lovely to see you, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
