Blue, Red, or Green Door? Tea Cozy update

The Tea Cozies I posted last week are coming along.
I have finished one, I am working on another, I have
a possible idea for the third and I have 2 others knitted
with no designs in the cabinet.  

Phew!!  I'm a knitt'n like crazy!

Here is what I have so far.......

As you can see, I only have blue yarn this
go round. I think I prefer cream! Isn't it always
that way.  LOL!

Above: 3 cozies all knitted in one size....
Teapots above are 4 cups, 2 cups & 1 cup.

Do you  think I should add elastic on the bottom
for a better fit on the smaller ones?

What size is your teapot?

Front (I may add more little flowers)
Back (maybe more grass and flowers?)

All stacked up :)

For your consideration....  Below is a current design
I am working on.  I still need to finish the flowers
and the cottage.

Here's the question....  What color door and shutters do
you think I should use?  Blue, Red, or Green?

I am full of questions this week!! :)

I hope you are having a nice week.
I am off to the dentist tomorrow! Doh!!

Hi Jen,
Thank you for your kind comment
on my tea cozies. :) I am having fun with them. Red doors and maybe a bird? I can see that!

I would be happy to make you one; however, I would need a week or two before it would be done. If your interested let me know and I will put you down on my list of knitting :)... currently working on a pair of fingerless mittens and some cozies to donate.

They're so pretty. I'd never have the patience to sit and do something like that - I wish I had.

I'd say red shutters & door.

My mum made many a cozy when I was younger, but then the teapot was always on the go. I make tea about once a year when my school pal comes to visit. Nowadays this is a coffee house.

I am pleased that you found the needlework dictionary helpful.

Thanks Arhonda, Grannymar,

I am having fun with them.. I have even started a new one with little designs on found on the website Grannymar recommended. :)
