A Mish-Mash of Catching Up and Other Stuff.

Hello my little friends, long time no see. All my fault of course, nothing to do with you diligent bloggers. As a result of my very lackadaisical posting today we have a bit of a mish-mash of happenings and makings from the last month or so. A bit like the sweeping-up of all the leftover bits on the floor.
This is my very untidy work table. I always seem to be working in about 6 inches of space while the rest of the very large table is chockablock full of stuff. Very important stuff you understand but never the less, absolutely piled up with... stuff. I do get things made though. In amongst the chaos. Brooches. I enjoyed a lovely day making felt flowers with my friend Anne.
At a Wendy Chan workshop in our local museum.

Not quite sure what do with them now though.

Domestic chores have been attended to.
Daily egg collection. This is a job no one tires of. It's like finding treasure every day. Whoohoo!

And here are four of our special girls, Fudge, Lady Gaga, Margery and Cluck bobbing down to get in front. I've made another dress.

I'd added a little bit of crochet to the belt just to jazz it up a bit.

Sorry, I didn't feel confident enough for a full frontal shot! Lol.
There have been a couple of lazy mornings in bed. Sipping tea, staring out of the bedroom window watching the hens on the bank and in the distance, tiny cars pootling up the hill.

My latest fad,

lined crochet purses.

These are inspired by my new crochet book Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench.
I say inspired because the pattern didn't work out for me so I did my own thing. The flowers are my own pattern.

So that's what has been happening in the MarmaladeRose household. Still trying to remember all of my favourites. It's really quite exciting discovering you all again!
