My Creative Space

Perhaps I should rename myslef the house of quilting, but then that sounds like I actually know what I am doing and that WOULD be misleading.
First up, the giraffe owner from last week made his entrance into the world on Monday - as cute as a button and I can't wait to give him a squeeze in person - clucky much, I know.
Some progress on my next baby quilt. I am a little nervous about this one as the only direction I had was blue, red and PLAIN. Not much to go on. Hoping to have it finished up over the next few Brown Owl and Perle 8 evenings. Do you come along if you are in Melbourne, they are lots o' fun.
I have started a collection of fabric for Caleb's quilt, which I am busting at the seams (excuse the pun) to start. I am trying not to as I know I wont sleep until I get it done and I have so many other things to do. Darn you 24 hour day - how you mock me!
More creative good stuff at Kirsty's house, and do stop to admire the new artwork on the wall. Isn't she so clever. I can't wait for the Madonna inspired T-shirt with pencil and cotton.

Throw caution to the wind and proudly call yourself "The House of Quilting!". And 10 points to you for the amazing restraint at not starting a new project... well done.

The 24 hour day has a lot to answer for! The quilt is cute, enjoy meeting the new giraffe owner, am thinking babies are looking a bit too cute for my own good at the moment!! Not quite ready for number 3 yet!!

24 hours!? I know, what's up with that!?
It seem unfair that our capacity for dreaming so grossly outweighs our time for producing...
Wow Caleb's a lucky boy... gorgeous choices.

Amanda said...

I love the red star! It's very subtle but super effective!

Karin said...

But you DO know what you are doing, don't you? At least, from my perspective, you create some wonderful pieces! Can't wait to see how Caleb's quilt will turn out.
