Trains are closely associated with Christmas. One of my all time greatest films is the Polar Express which features a train. At Christmas time we go to our local steam railway museum, where we go and visit Santa on a train. Even our seasonal greetings cards feature old steam trains, so I thought I'd design a steam train tea cosy depicting a train in a snowy wonderland.
I haven't been designing much the past few months because I have been kept busy by moving house. The Telegraph newspaper says that in a recent poll, two thirds of people voted moving house top of their stress list. I figured after all that stress you'd be putting the kettle on; and a house isn't a home without a tea cosy.
