Be Creative

Hello all! 
It's been a busy a summer here in the Marmaladerose household... a very good thing indeed. It means over the cold dark winter, I can dip back in and out of my summer photos and re-live those long warm, flower-scented days...and I do hope you'll pop by now and again to join me.

Firstly though... I'd like to share my excitement with you at being a cover girl! (Well it's the closest I'll ever get, lol!)
There's definitely a woolly feel to the cover of the current issue of Be Creative with Workbox Magazine... 
My felted wool artwork is splashed all over the cover of the current issue!
I have a lovely feature inside! Whoop! Whoop!
My five creative crushes are on page 14.
What a lucky girl I am and very honoured. I never dreamt that my work would feature on the cover.

I believe 'His Lordship', has double page spread.

 And there is a snapshots of this little fella too.

Although he isn't all that little in reality.

So... as Autumn makes it's mark and I prepare for my next event at the end of this month...
I shall leave you with a little sunshine from the Yorkshire Dales.
Till next time

Celebrating Spring!

Oh the excitement! 
Lighter nights! Bank holidays! The occasional patch of blue sky! 
I'm totally looking forward to summertime...My focus at the moment seems to be flowers! This is one of my latest felted wool pictures...I'm really enjoying creating the flowers. 
Yes it's all about the blooms at the moment.
Quite stylised. 
Blousy petals. Bobbly stamens. Bobbing heads. 
Hmmm...I can almost smell the sweet new grass and floral scents. 
...and back in reality...I'm wearing two pairs of socks, leg warmers...a huge cardi and looking out of the window at the snow on the hilltops! 

Till next time

Spring at Last!

I'm finally coming out of hibernation.
I think Spring is at last here in the North of England.
I know this because I've sat outside in the garden with a cup of tea...twice...YEAY! 
Yes... I did have my furry boots on and a woolly scarf but it wasn't wet and it wasn't windy...RESULT!
Yes... I can still see snow on the hill tops but if I squint it disappears.
I'm soooo ready for some blue skies, sunshine, green shoots and flowers. 

Definitely flowers! 
I'm craving flowers. 
The only flowers I can see are woolly and made by me... but needs must.
Till next time
