Maybe it's because both of my kids are in an organized school setting for more than two hours in a row for the first time ever.
Maybe it's because I love drinking hot tea.
Maybe it's because I just read Three Cups of Tea and was inspired to do something to support school systems in general all over the world (a portion of every cozy sale will go to the Central Asia Institute this time around. Am totally going local next time).
Maybe it's because my mom has a friend who is managing an art gallery and needed more "fiber artist" representation in an upcoming exhibit and asked for 20 tea cozies. So I made 31.
Maybe it's because I'm still excited I have a sewing machine that works so well (the Husqvarna Lilly and I have been together now a year and 2 months).
Maybe it's because I needed a craft to do with my hands that had a beginning and an end and modeled for my children a necessary skill.
Maybe, and most of all, maybe I did it because I enjoyed every single minute of it.
