Those with a wise eye out for old cottage novelties will be glad they found Old Trixy. Using stranded knitting, we find cleverly woven into the plump design her two familiar companions, a winking black cat and tattling parrot. What an amusing setting for afternoon tea. Rest awhile by the scarlet flames in the fireplace. Raisin toast anyone?
