good habit + another weaving

In winter I tend not to drink much water, instead I found myself indulging on coffee,
 hence I feel de-hydrated.
Now in the morning I put my cast iron kettle on the hob and I boil water 
(a Japanese friend told me the iron of the kettle goes in the water 
and make it softer and the tea taste sweet). 
I use loose organic Sencha tea, it might seems expensive 
but you can pour water twice and in the long run it costs less than ordinary tea-bags.

I finished my weaving sample number two. 
I'll make a third one, then I will start from zero and make a small collection.

everything looks so nice... I used to drink tea a lot in winter but didn't like it at all while I was pregnant... this winter I also don't drink much of it... I don't know why.., :)
Oh and I wonder.... will you make yourself a rug also? :)

ah... Ana, when I was expecting I couldn't drink not even a cup of decaf coffee, for some reason only the smell of coffee made me sick...perhaps it's baby self defence...who knows!?

Your tea cup and kettle is so pretty. Did you get it in Japan?

Thank you Denise and Anna :-)

Nadia, no, I bought the teapot in London, the cup is from Suffolk made by a Danish potter.

Just so wonderful Alessandra! Your weavings are divine :) I used to drink coffee all the time (but strangely not so much since I gave up smoking!) Funny thing I think. The Mr and I share a pot of loose leaf tea every morning - such a lovely way to start the day :) Can't wait to see your next weaving adventure. Kx

Your weavings are very beautiful and inspirational, you might just spur me to have another go!
