Where I've been...


Sorry for my absence; but perhaps you hadn’t noticed I’d gone.

For the past two weeks The House has resembled Santa’s workshop.

I came back from Kuala Lumpur raring to meet my deadline on Polite Lies, my never-ending novel, instead I found my time wasn’t my own. Father Christmas had outsourced some of his work… to me.

That’s not true. I volunteered. (Why? Why do I do these things? I’ve told Husband I won’t do it again. He laughed and said it defined me… I’m not sure I like that.)

So three weeks work was over and done with a two-hour lunch.


Uh oh. This seemed like a good idea at the time:




I've made a start...


A veritable forest:


And it's all over...

You amaze me!

Flowerpot, thank you. I'm clearly very stupid also...

Sue, in a good way I hope...

Aw, RTC; thanks.

Debs said...

Wow, those are impressive. Are you free to pop over to my house on Christmas Eve and help set up for Christmas lunch?

Joanna St. James said...

You are so creative, first with the fascinators and now these, they are beautiful.

Su said...

Ooh, those are pretty. I'm always on the lookout for new Christmas crafts; may have to give it a try!

Those are gorgeous! Any chance you'll post a how to?

Ragged Thread Cartographer said...

I was wondering about the how-to as well. At first thought glue dobs then (blew up photo) feather-attachment studs? Did tiny holes have to be drilled ? Would love to know!

Jenny Beattie said...

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I might try to post a how to. Watch this space. Yes, RTC, little holes...

How very clever. We need a how-to post.
