Big ungainly word for unprofitable science, vain, useless art or skill - hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Lots of mataeotechnists at the Knit and Stitch, maybe.

I liked this portrait, the use of the over lapping nets for shading, the flick of the fingers.
This tea cosy has character too. I rarely make a pot of tea these, I use a tea strainer for my gunpowder green tea [pouring off the boil water over and into the mug.
Teabag for "builders" usually trying to pour water mid boil over it, tho I doubt it matters given the quality of the sawdust in the bags. Coffee is boiling water again over "Lazy Sunday", two scoops of the purple plastic scoop. We have two cafetieres and one of those little Italian pressure doovries but we never use them.
Never have "instant" too much formaldehyde.
This was the winning quilt, "Black Pearl", very clever, lots of oohs and ahhhs. Lots of labels integrated into the designs, recycling and reclaiming from Mammon.

I love the portrait and the tea cosy - would buy a tea pot for that!

The ritual of tea is not dead. My ex and wife have a thermometer to make sure the right temp of water goes on the chosen tea, usually china. A glass tea pot and ducky little cups - I love it but couldn't be bothered. drink Rooibos in bag form myself. I d miss the comforting shape of a traditional pot around the house though - I might revive the ritual here now I've thought of it..
