My Creative Space

Ive always been happy to sew anything but clothes.
Im fine with cushions, curtains, softies, long as its not wearable, then count me in.

But I think this may finally be the year.

So I found myself the easiest skirt pattern out there in blogland and got cracking.

So whilst Im sure I'll never be a professional seamstress, Im pretty happy with how they turned out for a first attempt. A black one for Zoe (for some reason my 8 year old is into black????)

And a pretty pink one with extra embellishments for the girly girl.

Perfect for sharing secrets on the deck!

To check out more creative spaces, head across to Kirsty's place.

Ciao for now

Holiday Reflections

Apart from catching up with family and friends over the break

I've had the chance to get back in touch with my creative side. After nearly twelve months without a space to create in, I finally got the opportunity to start on my craft room. Whilst its by no means complete, heres a sneak preview of where I'm at. I walk under these to get there...

Im learning to share my space with these guys ...

at the front entrance....

Anyway, hopefully I can show you some creative pursuits made in this space. Im exceptionally happy about my table. Which is a hand me down from my late grandmother via my aunty and mum. The room is no where near finished, but at least I can get cracking on some projects now.

Also in January, the gorgeous Meggy Moo turned six
...with a pool party overseen by the pool boy....

We caught up with more family down the coast.....

And these two continue to strengthen their bond!

Happy January Everyone.
