Pottering around

At last [big sigh] most of the unpacking is done. There is a pile of pictures we can’t yet hang as there aren’t any picture hooks here yet and a few other random things that don’t have homes yet but mostly we are done.  So done that in fact it has gone from lovely and tidy and new, to gathering bits of my crafting and Ollie Rose all over the place making  it look like we have been here for years! The table is covered in papers from a bit of paper craft.

Been making cards…

… and these for my girl’s rooms.

And this for Kellie over at MooWoo’s new baby boy. HAD to do personalised seeing as he has such a cool name. ehehehe

The coffee table has a little pile of these pretty petals on it that will soon become hairclips. Aren’t the sunset shades just lovely!

Reminding me of this divine rose…

And these fairy floss ones….

…reminding me of………mmmmmmmmmmm

On my desk is the squashed and very tangled mess of the mobile that didn’t get packed so well and will take me a month just to untangle. Will probably be best just to cut off all the threads and start again!

I tend to flit from project to project leaving a trail of things all over the house!

And as for the actual room that is supposed to be dedicated to Ollie Rose, well that is still a bit disastrous. I will finish unpacking and sorting it this weekend I hope (and find the missing very large roll of towelling fabric I hope! ) and in the mean time there are about 6 projects I have started in there all over the place.

All of the above are becoming shirts and there are lots of other cute ones to come.

I also must get to the outside and finish up a few things out there. We got a few seedlings on the weekend and planted those and I picked up a gorgeous turquoise pot which will house some water plants and little fish. We have sealed the water hole up and filled it with water and if all is good by the weekend we will pop over to the pet shop to get the little fish.

I was hoping for a water-lily however these need full sun and I didn’t want the pot out in the garden so will opt for some other plants instead and let a bit of duck weed cover the surface just because it looks so pretty.

So I am pleased to report that in amongst the last of the unpacking there is a little bit of new items for Ollie Rose getting made. Also in the works is some stocks of other very cool hand-made items to hit the store soon.

All I need is more hours in the day!
