Oh my word!

I can't believe my last post was back in January!! Life got very busy, I left it VERY late to do my tax return(only 3 days to spare) hope I never do that again! Then I swapped markets again. as you know I have a stall on Thursdays in Witney, but since November takings have been down quite a bit, so we (being me and my friend Karen) decided to go back to the Antiques and Craft market in Oxford.I have been there for the past 3 weeks. I do miss Witney and my regular customers there as they are so lovely , but hopefully I will have a stall on some Saturdays in the Spring months.
So what have I been up to? Crochet , crochet and more crochet, I love it sooo much!!

I got a bit addicted to making these rose brooches and then my lovely friend Karen bought me a big bag of beautiful vintage mohair from a tabletop sale and I made lots more!
The colours are so pretty!

Made these roses in yarn from my existing stash.

I love making these ruffle scarves too! I have popped some in my Christmas gift drawer.You see that's me, so behind in some things and ahead of myself in others!

I also gave our bedroom a HUGE tidy up and finally got around to putting up my vintage prints which I love, hubby not so much, but he still put them up bless him!

Thank you so much to you all for leaving comments on previous posts, sorry I am so sporadic and a HUGE cuddly welcome to all my new followers too! So pleased that you pop by for a peek into my little world

Have a fantabulous week!

The mohair flowers are lovely! I remember having a little pink mohair jacket when I was little which I wore for parties....I loved it.Nice to have you back again! :0)

Lovely to see your post today! Your mohair roses are really beautiful. I've just ordered some mohair to knit with and am longing for it to come so I can begin! The mohair colours are really yummy in your pix. I loved your pretty flower pictures too - think I may have that rose one on the right myself! Loved your violet/lilac wall - my new favourite colour of the moment! Have a great week.

I've been making rose brooches too ... but now I've seen yours I'm feeling mine are a bit oversized (I started with a chain of 65 so as you can imagine they're whoppers).
The flower pictures are gorgeous (especially the blue one). I had a similar one slip through my fingers (or rather snatched from under my nose!) a few weeks ago and am mourning it's loss.

Hi Rachel,

Welcome back! I missed your colourful and inspiring posts. Time flies by really quickly when you are busy indeed.

Love your crocheted hearts and vintage prints. I have been collecting the same sort of prints to put on a wall in my bedroom. I still miss one or two things, but hopefully I can put them on the wall in summer.

Happy day & lieve groet,

I love your mohair roses, I have never tried crocheting with this type of wool thought it might be a bit tricky as it isn't smooth. Might have to give it a go after seeing all of yours. Dev x

Your crochet flowers are like delicious looking confections, wonderful! I do love the colours in your bunting from your last post, really lovely. I know what you mean about time flying, where does it go! Love Vanessa xxx

Hi Rachel,

Hope you don't mind me asking, but do you have a link to where I can find/buy the pattern for those roses. I'm adding flowers to a knitted bodice for a project I'm working on...

and they would be perfect!
