Housework?

Well, I loaded the dishwasher, I put the laundry into the washing machine, errrmmm, I straightened the beds, I vacumned the family room, although why I bother doing that I don't know, 5 mins after I have done it, it looks exactly like it did before, thank you, doggies! I looked at the floor brush, I studied the furniture polish and duster, I contemplated tidying up the shoe racks, I wrote a shopping list............... and then I couldn't resist the temptation any longer, I had to finish putting the final touches to a couple of flower brooches and then put them all onto large tags. But the tags looked too bare, so I tea stained a couple of pieces of paper and printed the La Croix Rosion name onto those, and stuck them on the front of the tags. I am quite happy with the results. I hadn't realised quite how many brooches I hade made, and how sweet and colourful they looked all together in a big basket -


These are the new ones I made over the last few days -


I have a whole lot of other flowers, little ones, big ones, medium ones, lol, which are destined to be sewn onto a couple of cushions/pillows, errrmm, sometime soon. When oh when will I be able to stop? Maybe I have to accidently on purpose lose the crochet hooks, or ask my DS to hide the wools, or focus on something else............

It does get this way, doesn't it? My current obsession is with sewing skirts! Those elastic-waist band skirts are so fun to make :)

Those crochet flower brooches look so good, BTW!

I have to say, they look very professional Liz! Maybe, just maybe, you will make your fortune selling these flowers and live happily ever after.

And yes I really did enjoy teasing you on my blog. Little miss is doing very well with her clarinet too and can now play Mary had a little lamb quite a few times. Actually she's waiting for me to put it together for her now and it's not even 7am. Young sister still in bed even! Better go, keep crocheting girl!!!

Those are so sweet, and well presented too! I read about your friends and their new daughter - how wonderful! We have French friends who adopted a daughter when they lived in China and she's fantastic - so happy and clever, which is incredible when you realise that she lived a very deprived life in an orphanage for her first 2 and a half years.

Love them all! They look so pretty in large quantities AND on the tags. Much more fun than doing house work. I crocheted some for a prior post, but gave up after a few!

I LOVE the beads in the center of your brooches! I have a set of those that were Daughter#2s in the 90s...do they still make beads like those?
