Offering a little something to keep you going

Standard

as it were.

Totally out of order of play, was saving this entry to very last or near last, but health going a little pear-shaped at mo and don’t quite know when I’ll next be mini-ing much.  Prob not today, anyway.

Anyhoo, a tale told from the Mouse population’s point of view – with great respect to Beatrix Potter and the Tailor of Gloucester

Supervising mouse making sure the note is in place as well as the one they’re attempting to deliver upstairs.

Back soon, have a good week 🙂

Bobbin about

Standard

Could be apples, could be thread

Touch and go whether this would post; our phone line is semi damaged by weather and passing double-decker animal transport, (no landline and yet some dial-up speed internet) so working on a wing and prayer 🙂

Working around Clemcold generally and here we have some further bedroom dressing, some downstairs details plus a little outside.

Bedroom first:

More drink items sloshing around and a pair of shoes left under the end of the bed

Living and working space:

Table set out with some of the new work being undetaken and a closer look at the stock corner, with some thread or other having run out it would seem

A kindly neighbour has delivered a bowl of eggs. This human is so well stocked with food and good neighbours!

theinfill blog – Clemcold Cottage scratch build eighteenth century scenes - plant kits

Outdoors, plants are coming forth, sort of. Lovely kit, hard on elderly hands and I’ve made a fair old mess of the flower heads.
Built up a mache of paper and hump shapes of cardboard trays to create a planting space then used museum wax coloured up with some of the eye makeup to help hold the leaves and plant stalks before squeezing in more glue in hopes that it will all hold 🙂
fingers crossed.

Few more bits to be made for the bedroom and I must straighten out that kettle over the fire or it will be slopping out on the fire.  More plant kits to make too, but the main item for the workroom downstairs is now finished so nearly there with this build.

The daring young mouse
