My Creative Space

At the moment my creative energies are flitting between the sewing machine and my hook.
I am over halfway through a crochet baby blanket (8 1/2 squares finished, 6 1/2 to go!) which is coming along nicely, and which I generally work on at night in front of a dvd. I have quite a few friends having babies this year, so fingers crossed one of them has a girl :-P.

Among some other sewing projects I've got on the go (a dress for Lana, zinnia floor cushion for the lounge, and quite a few bags) I'm making this bag for a friend. Just mentally preparing myself for the new challenge...I'm loving my friend's fabric choice though, which is definitely motivating. I think this is just my process...procrastinate for a bit, then get stuck into it and then act completely surprised with how quickly it comes together when I put my head down...would've thought I'd have learnt to just skip the procrastinating part by now, hey?

More interesting, inspiring and fun creative spaces to be found over here.


  1. Oooh - can't wait to see the travel bag!!! Granny squares look lovely :)

  2. Hey Kelly,
    I've seen some of the Amy Butler stuff at one of my local sewing and wool shops. It's been years since I have used the machine and haven't ventured there yet.
    Have you made the bag yet? It's a hot pattern.
    cheers p

  3. No - procrastination is an essential part of the process, isn't it? If not, I'm doing something wrong!

    I'll be interested to see how you get on with the Amy Butler pattern - I've read very mixed reports about her patterns and I've held off getting any (more procrastinating - I'm very good at it!).

  4. i agree ... your friend's choice in fabric is wonderful.
