La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Craft Room (part 1)

It's not even funny how my craft room looked like a war zone. Couldn't open the cupboards, full of fabrics, without them piling up on the floor.
Ironing on my table, in laundry baskets spread on the floor.
Well I did the (some) ironing first.  Sorted the rest and put it somewhere safe.
I had to tackle the fabrics - I have a crush on fabrics - don't you ?  Stacks and stacks I made, sorted by colour.  I also unearthed loads of curtains while I was at it....and cushion covers for scatter cushions.

I did it !

That's that sorted !
There is, however, the art materials that still needs sorting, because it's the same story as with the fabrics..... then my books....You get the picture.

We'll see how the weather holds up over the weekend. If it's sunny, I'll be in the garden. If not, you'll find me in the craftroom preparing for part two.

Have a lovely weekend. And to my friends in Ireland, enjoy Paddy's Day, the Sneem Parade and don't get too bladdered.

  1. It looks admirably neat - but how long will it stay like that??? :)

  2. Haha ! Until I reach for a piece of fabric from the bottom, middle or top. :D
