The Brasilian way of making coffee or tea....

My dear mother in law had a birthday last week. I want to send this filter to her that it has been in the making for almost 3 weeks. I had next to my sewing machine and then I took to the shop to make the handle... It could had been done much sooner but .....oh well.... so many other things got in the way .
The clothe is egg shell linen cambraia. You can only get this in Brasil or Italy.The wire is 3 tones and the handle is cheery wood.
She did mail her a set of crockery but this little tea/coffee is something I wanted to make for her for while....



it is ready to be shipped.... Although Judy loves coffee , I have a feeling she will use this filter for her loose tea

Bonjour ma chère Tita,
My husband is sitting here with me enjoying your art work and your coffee looks so good! He is asking so many questions about your lovely wool art...he wants to buy one of your wool bunnies, in particular the mother rabbit with the child in the blue coats! He wants to know more details about when you can make another one for us and the price. He is very interested! He loves your work and like myself, thinks that your work is outstanding! Send me an email my dear friend! Bisous, Anita

Bonjour encore ma chère! I am having such a difficult time getting into my email! Anyway, I had left a message earlier this morning as Ruben was looking at Big Joe with me on your site. He really loves your work as I knew he would! He is really interested in those wool rabbits...so, we'll talk soon. I will keep trying my email, but it is having many problems this morning. Your coffee method looks like how Ruben makes his, Puerto Rican style!!! I can almost smell it now! Bisous, Anita
