I don't know about your Rose, but I've acquired a rather fitting leather armchair by the fire. Now, who's for a bran muffin? Let me get my spectacles out...

I adore gingerbread esp in that form.
I do sew, my thanks for asking but I have a knit to complete so if it pleases you I will continue with that.

May I have some as well please? I just finished making some lace...several yards of trim. Does anyone else here make lace?

Also, does anyone here have any experience making fabric or paper flowers?

Thankee Ms. RoseOak.

*pouring in some gin*
I was hoping to be able to make some out of ribbons or silk fabric. Probably roses or hydrangeas, I've not decided yet. I can make paper flowers, but those are easily smooshed. Technical word, smoosh. What kind have you made?

Ah now you be my kind of tea companion.

here are some very rough explanations

Roses are easiest to make. get a square of fabric, fold over, stitch the bottom, ruffle it up a bit and roll into a tube and flatten it out a bit an stitch the bottom. If you want a stem then tuck in some fabric wire before you roll it together.

Hydrangeas are fiddly but very pretty. You need a lot of little circles of fabric put a stitch in the middle and pull a bit till it crinkles and stitch to where you want it. You can make them also by lots of petal shapes stitched  together 4 a time at the bottom to create the shape.

I know its a silly suggestion but I find the tuts for paper flowers translate very well to fabric pieces.

Hehehe...care for some? *offering my flask*

I did pick up several books at the local library for making fabric flowers, and they did have some pattern pieces in there for paper flowers. I was thinking cut those out and that would be it.

Roses did look like the easiest, but I thought the hydrangeas might be pretty. I might...might...make it out of metal, maybe, or at least practice with it. I have some copper sheet at home, and there's plenty there, so if I mess up a little I can make more. I don't quite know yet which I'm going to use, the metal or the fabric. *taking a sip of tea*

jusr a whimsy in my tea, thank you.

May I suggest that you practice of fabric before you go onto metal. Mesh is lovely for flowers esp if you twin it with silk in layers or you could crochet them in wire

Hydoes are beautiful but like I said, fiddly. You may want to expend on some fraystop.

*pours a bit in*

I never thought about mesh...that could be quite beautiful, thank you. ^_^ Yes, fabric practice first. *nods* I've never crocheted wire before, is it difficult?

No its actually quite easy. Everything stays in place and you can mould it afterwards if you want. You need jewellery wire and a metal  hook is best. Just beware of sharp ends when you've finished it.

With the look of my grandfather, probably not... But I look pretty good with grey hair.
And I would like something, ANYTHING, liquid. Actually? I would like some absinthe. I enjoy the flavour...

Yes, some absinthe for the young man. Yes, I'm sure he's old enough. And I'll have a mimosa if you please. Thank you. ^_^

Now, what's new in the world of Hastings?  Smiley

Well, the last time I posted, I think was when I got a girlfriend.
So, drama, speed skating competition, and sleep deprivation.
Nothing spectacularly new... You?

Drama. Got a car, finally. We also have an oven that works now. Looking for a new job. Working out. Getting ready for the holidays.

Just the usual. Especially the drama part. ^_^

How is your girlfriend?
