My Creative Space

There seems to be a few things floating around in my space this week. I had some shirts that I cut out for Poppy at the beginning of winter that are still patiently waiting, one more ice cream dress and I may even get some buttons and cuffs on the shirt I started making for Glen many moons ago. The most exciting thing is that I have finally caught up with winters sewing. Yes I know it is the end of July, but that still gives me a few months before summer requests roll in. It is a perfect time to get into some summer dresses for me – that were planned last summer!

creative space 002 The lovely Kate invited me to join in the Down Under Doll quilt swap on Flickr so these are cut ready for a little fabric-y experiment.
