Aw the bear looks so sweet...being so patient. He's lovely.

Katie J

Sod the house work - I'd finish the bear!. You can't leave him looking so sad now can you! I'll look forward to seeing a photo of him when he's finished.
Love the bag too - lazy-itus? I've had that for ages, wonder if it's catching???

tracey

definately finish the bear the housework won't be any worse tomorrow- I am gonna quilt this afternoon as i know the ironing can wait and its raining again! regards Tracey

Melanie

Got to be the bear. He looks like such a lovely patient chap. He def. deserves to be finished. Anyway the children have the summer (yep what a laugh in this weather) hols now so the house will be trashed in hours anyway. Mine broke up today, can you hear the panic in my typing? LOL Still Homebase had loads of 20p tester pots and we we have loads of cardboard boxes, so we can craft galore without being interrupted by silly things like having to go to bed on time. Hope you have as much fun Lyn.

carol

Love the postcard. It would be very fitting here too.

Vera

I love the picture above, it fitĀ“s to my room, as well. Great.

Mimi K

just replace "clutter" with "rich environment"- doesn't that sound so much better!

lucykate crafts

love the bag, can i ask, what is the blue spotty fabric on the bottom strip?. i'm not usually a big fan of blue but that print is really pretty.

it is raining again here too. its the last day of term and mother nature decided we all need another good soaking!

Christine

First the bear of course, then the housework - unless you find something better to do...
The bag is really beautiful, I like the fabrics. I am sure the card was meant for me and you only received it by mistake ;-)

RAchelle

What a cute card! And the bear is, as usual, AMAZINGLY darling!

RI

IS THE METAL HOOK FIXED ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR TO KEEP THE BEARS FROM ESCAPING...OR DO THEY ESCAPE AND LOCK YOU IN ?...THE ONLY CHOICE IS TO LOCK YOUR SELF IN... AND FINISH THAT BEAR...POOR CHAP HOW WILL HE LEARN TO SWIM..

Mama Urchin

A mess to your family, a playground to us!

Chrissy

I love the patchwork bag...it is gorgeous!

Dawn

beautiful bag!

stacey

I love your "little limbed" bear - he is so comical-kind-of - sweet. I hope you chose him over the housework - the housework will always be there - not every day you get to create a little personality!

Kim (Ragged Roses)

Oh you've got to finish the bear - no real choice is it!

Nothing wrong with being compared with Van Gogh...
Love the bag..and that sweet bear.
You are one of the MOST creative peeps on the net...IMHO...
Nevermind the mess...

Dee Light

Love the Bag the Bear and THE CLUTTER ( it adds character).

Deb G

Oh my gosh the postcard fits me too! I try to not think of it as clutter, but rather as a source of inspiration....

AJ

The bear is just too cute!

raggyrat

Vicky

Love the material combinations in the bag. What a lucky recipient!

gena

Beautiful bag! Housework is ruined five minutes later, but the bear will last a lifetime! I'm going to have to use that argument myself.

Natalie

Sincerely, truly... thank you for posting your clutter. I feel much better, less isolated and inferior. Your honesty is a kindness to clutter-birds like me.

Swirlyarts

Hah hah - my mother in law sent me this card too for my birthday! I didn't know what she meant either!! Love your little bears - gorgeous.

debra

Looks familiar. I describe my daughter's trail as a river of creativity. Mine, however, are piles:-)

kuka

teehee, I love the postcard!!!
and that little bear is soooo cute! =)

Carla

I can so relate! I WANT a spotless house, but sewing is SO much more fun! I love the picture of your cat with the "kitty tails" Adorable!

Biscuitbear

Haha that Van Gogh joke is very funny! Love your bag and vote for the bear - he's got such a beseeching look!

carolyn

Your so funny! Love the bag wish I was the recipient and forget the housework the bear is in NEED.

ninimakes

Love seeing a REAL work space! Maybe you'll inspire pictures of other real work spaces - if I can uncover mine I might post a photo too.

Gina

That's funny... someone sent me that card too! Just wanted to say Lyn, I love your blog. It was the first one I discovered (I didn't know this crafting/blogging world existed)after reading about you in Embroidery Magazine and you always makes me smile! And of course you make such gorgeous stuff. So now I'm hooked and read loads of blogs... much more preferable than housework. So much so that this week I've even started my own.

JUANITA

Lovely!

quenna

Housework ALWAYS loses at my home! Sweet bear :)

house cleaning is over-rated

katja

HI! Your blog is such a inspiration for me :) looking your cute bears, bags and fabrics I made a small bag too ;) http://pusapesa.blogspot.com/2007/07/kott.html
inspired by you ;)
Greetings and keep up the fabulous work!

Even your clutter is gorgeous.

Passions & Distractions

That card is so cute!!!! Love the bag and bear!

Kate

I love the bag it is so cute.

DML

I love the look on that bear's face: such soulful expression. I do hope that the housework didn't win. Talking of which, I had better go and do some. My house is so bad right now that Van Gogh is putting me to shame....

tyn

The bear is wonderful. As usual!
It is good to see that your space looks like mine. Creative people can NOT be bothered with tasks like cleaning everyday!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Lise (Giulietta

Molly Chicken:

This postcard would be most appropriate in my place. It makes me smile to read you and I thank you.

Lise(a.k.a. giulietta)

Darlene

I really like the bag you made. It's beautiful.

Marisa

Again, glad to hear I'm not alone in my cluttered universe.

joyce

Heehee, that's why I love "corners of my home"...close up on some spot that pleases me...that I just cleared out so I could take a pretty picture!

rhembein

Clutter? What clutter?! *ahem*

Where can I find that card... for.. a.... friend. Yeah. *ahem*

I say bugger the house work too! BEAR! What a cutie!! What a surprise! NOT! :D

LOVE the whip too!! Dang cute!

~gyl

Off to do my housework.
NOT! :D

Ghene

Get on with the bear and make your bag before inspiration flies over the window :)

Lissa

Hey, how do you get a sewing area that tidy is what I want to know??? I have an 8 seater table about a foot thick at the moment of crafting treasures..
I stick by the motto of "I am creative, you can't expect me to be neat too"..
I am not lazy, I am just economical with my time :O)
Love the blog and will be back.

kate

i love that bear!!! do you have a pattern?

Mrs Recycle

dearest mollychicken - how new, fresh and organised everything appears as your recreate in wonderfully detailed stages and I also run a home in organised choas and wouldn't have it any other way. As quoted from my fridge magnet - "Make yourself at home - clean the kitchen !"

starashan

I love the bear!! Are you sure he's not finished?? :P He's so cute as is! :o)

angeljoy

Thanks for sharing your sketchbook. What a great idea! Much more creative than tearing stuff out of a magazine!Love the picture of the cat! Sad, but hilarious!

sarah

Hi. I have made about ten softies and would like to make something out of mohair for my two-year-old-but I can't figure out where to buy it. I love your bears and would be so grateful if you could tell me where to look for mohair. Kind regards.

tinker

Lovely little bear, I want to kiss his nose - he's almost edible he's so cute!

I heard from a little birdie (of the Snowbear species) that today's a special day for you - Happy Birthday! Which explains the card - though I'm wondering how they got a picture of my bedroom on there :-)
Hope you're having a wonderful summer! xo

theresa

Hey, you're not here and you haven't opened the ecard I sent you so I guess I'll just say it here:
HAPPY BLOOMIN' BIRTHDAY MY DEAR!
I guess this means you're out celebrating--good for you. Hope you've got the red wine glass full all day.
;-)

Donna

Happy Happy Birthday! Hope there is plenty of red wine and dancing in the kitchen.

raggyrat

your dear friend is sending us over to say happy birthday to you xxx so happy birthday ... i know why your quiet coz i have 3 kids at home right now too, hope you get just a teeny bit spoiled and a nice glass of red :-)
tompot benny says 'hic' ... cuttlefish is in pieces ! cat xxxx

Georgie

My goodness that bear is edible, and he looks so vintage. He must be finished! Housework can always wait! :)

corine

Even your clutter is pretty.

I too did a post on clutter today and I can assure you that all cluttered rooms aren't alike.

charlotte

Imagining you have received this before, but I nominated you for a thinking blog award... details at www.housewrenstudio.typepad.com

stacey

I just love the beat - he looks so silly, I giggled when I saw him - so darn cute. BTW your clutter is actually pretty to the untrained eye!:) And the bag is awesome!
