My Creative Space

Apparently I have managed to loose yet another week and it has bee a busy one too. Unfortunately still can’t shake this bloody sickness so am having next week off work which is a big deal since I don’t get paid. This may mean that there is either more of me around or less – who knows.063

There was a great time to be had at Sew It Together and lots of people have managed to share the fun long before my sorry organisation. Sophie was an absolute pleasure to have at our place for the weekend and the kids would of happily sneaked into her suitcase. The Saturday craft extravaganza was great and lots of truly adorable ladies and even though there was a lot of stitching time it doesn’t look like there was much achievement. There was unspoken plans to finish off the last 3 panels needed and half way through 1 is the most progress managed. I figure on the couch stitching still counts as rest for next week.

Sheridan did a thoroughly amazing job organising and sponsors and gorgeous goodie bags – too good really. I was so lucky to win a $50 gift voucher from Funky Fabrics – it was burning a hole in my pocket - so many projects to choose from and gorgeous fabrics to do them with until I saw this newly listed Birch fabric. If I was a fabric collection this is exactly what I would be, chairs, animals, birds! A lap quilt in all the chairy colourful goodness and divine mid-century frivolity, so excited. There may be a little quilting to do while on the couch next week too! (Glen finds my love of the chair a little strange, though I am not alone.)
