My Creative Space

First off thank you for all your mess support last week, I have since cleaned it up and you can actually see carpet. I was tempted to leave it but all the buttons kept sticking to your feet and you would leave a Hansel and Gretel trail every time. Once out of the safe confides of the sewing room they are an open meal to a wandering dog. I still have to sort all my fabric after the market but you can't rush these things.
I have a couple of orders from the market to do and I am sewing a little red hounds tooth fabric dress for Poppy which I think will look super cute, even though I seem to be taking forever to finish it. I have some nice wool fabrics too that are destined to be kids pants.
I have been sewing them new tracksuit pants, but trying to use my stash so it is a case of "tracksuit pants go upmarket" and I have made them each a pair in wool flannel that I had. I really love them, they wash super well and wear super well and because of the wide fabric they actually work out to be cheaper than mainstream tracksuit pants. Caleb was so excited that I actually sewed him something. After he tried it on, he went to take them back off and told me they were for the market, I hope that lasts for a while.
I have also been working on my granny squares at Brown owl's and Perle 8's as well which has made for a very enjoyable week.
More creative spaces at Sensai Kirtsty's (that is right she shall be imparting me with her great knowledge on Sat. for her HAC craft arvo, should be good. I am sure she is hoping that it goes better than trying to teach me crochet.)
Another great thing I finally got around to doing in my crafty space is my blog list too - hooray. I did a link list not a blog list the first time round and it took forever before my computer froze and I lost the whole thing. Thanks to all the crafty and special peeps that makes it so much fun.

I love the details on the pants. Buttons sticking to the bottom of your feet really can drive you crazy. Congrats on the clean up.

Like the idea of a trail of buttons leading you to your creative space, but no good if they stick to your feet or the dig eats them. Love the detail on the pants, they look fantastic.

That's so funny that Caleb took them back off and thought they were for the market!

very cool track pants. Much too nice to even be considered tracky dacks!

I'm pretty sure that wool flannel are more about the dack & less about the track...very high end.
