A peek at the Mouse House.

After weeks of stitching and making I'm taking a little time to do some jobs at home.....

                  Today it was a lovely mild Autumn morning with blue skies and a breeze.

                                             My winter neighbours are up and about.
                                             My whites are on the line....

                                                   and I've pruned the Wisteria.

                This is  a very neglected garden so I'll be getting some ground work done over the winter.
                                        I'll keep you in touch with my progress.
                     I'm also working on the inside of the cottage to really make it home.
                     I hope you'll keep me company as I go so watch out for more posts.

                                                         Happy weekend,

The Mice are back!

You may have been wondering where I have been hiding lately. I haven't forgotten my blogging friends but I have been so busy with teaching and making that my poor blog has been badly neglected.

In a few weeks time I will be able to spend some time on my house and garden, I can't wait!!!

But, first I have to be ready for 'Christmas Crafts@Cowslip' I'll be taking lots of prim makes and also a selection of my Mice.
I made my first mouse some time ago from a pattern from the fabulous Pamela at 'Soft in  the Head'. I am truly awed by her amazing talent and her wonderful humour. You may know that she is ill at the moment and I am wishing her a speedy recovery. Check out her blog too, you'll love it.

                                                                 Here are my girls.

They have yet to be named, suggestions please!!!

Heres Mrs Christmouse and two little Angels.

and three little maids in blue.

They are such fun to make and I'm not sure I want to part with them.

I promise not to neglect my Mouse House for too much longer.
I'll be showing you the work on my house and garden as I go along but first more work to do that fair is only four weeks away!!!!!
