My Creative Space.....

Oh my goodness, it feels like FOREVER that i played along with my creative space

With the craziness of school holidays over (HELLO drop off and pick up - i most definately have not missed you) im hoping to get my blogging mojo back

Mr is off to grade 3, and little miss is off to kindy this year - something she has been longing for.... Thankfully there were no tears (from her) and she skipped off to kindy like she had been doing it forever!

and of course the grin from baby Kate when she realised it was just me and her: priceless!

I have so much to catch up on - i hope you're all still out there!

in my creative space this week im working on a heap of these..
a order for my dear friend who gets married in April

Hope your all having a wonderfully crafty day

Thanks for stopping by!

I know i know, its been a while! The good news is that my lack of posting is not due to lack of crafting - more to do with lack of time.

Every year just before christmas when my list of christmas sewing is still WAAAAAy longer than it should be, i swear i will start my christmas sewing earlier (like in January perhaps?!) but alas here i am with 2 weeks till Christmas and still with presents to sew.

So this is a little of what has been happening:

1. Hen's night invites
2. Wedding invites - it is Wedding season!
3. A framed gift for one of my best ladies..
4. A lamp and bunting set for a special little one year old!
5. A lamp/bag set as a christmas gift.

....and thats only one ones i actually remembered to take photos of!

Thanks for stopping by!

KCWC Day 4

Manged to squeeze in a little project for the littlest miss - couldn't go past this pattern for ruffled bloomers!

I found the leg holes tough to get right, but practice makes perfect i guess!

Sitting down tonight to thread in the elastic and cut out some pieces out to sew, sew, sew tomorrow!

KCWC 2011

the warmer weather is well and truly here in sunny Queensland and you know what that means: spring sewing! With summer fast approaching and kindy on the horizon for little miss, i have decided to join the sew-a-long kids clothing week challenge going on at Elsie Marley..

So you basically just commit to sewing a hour a day of clothing for the kids. My almost-four-year-old has very definite ideas about what she wants to wear and im always hard pressed to get her in anything but skirts and dresses, so this is what i am aiming at.

We took ourselves off to the fabric shop today so she could choose her own fabric and after a little negotiation (hot pink sequins anyone?!) this is what she picked...

So with the kiddies tucked up in bed, im sitting down to sew for an hour..... or two!

Check back here during the week for the end results...

Thanks for stopping by!
