Brooch Swap Sneak peak

In amongst all the excitement of the giveaway day, i have been pushing along with several other projects, including several swaps that i have signed myself up for!

There nothing like looming deadlines to get myself into gear - Baby due in 4 weeks people! Where did that time go?! The brooch swap deadline also falls about that time and susie has kindly set up a linky to share our works in progress.

So here is my brooch progress still in various stages of construction. Lets hope it turns out like i am imagining...... unlike the nappy bag saga - but that is a story for another day!

Thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Space.....

A bit of a dreary old day here, the sort of weather to pull the ugg boots on and get some serious craftiness on!

Instead i have coughing, wheezing, runny noses and little ones home sick so whether i get to this is another story. But if i do get a chance, I'm back in nesting mode which means organising the kids room - trying to decorate a boy/girl shared room has proved quite a challenge. Fortunately the room is big enough to do a 'his' and 'hers' side.

So here's a little sneak peek of is what i am working for little miss...

Hopefully i'll bring you the completed project in the coming days.

Be sure to visit my creative spaces which now has a home all of it's own

Thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Space..... and a celebration

In go slow mode with my creative space this week - feeling all the aches and pains of the last 7 weeks of pregnancy. Though on the whole, it has gone fast and i am fast running out of time to finish my baby sewing - still some swaddles, a special 1st softie and that all important nappy bag to make!

I managed some sewing time earlier this week and made a start on these clutches, so today im just doing the last hand sewing and finishing touches on these. Don't forget to visit Kirsty for more creative spaces.

Some are for the shop, the others will make up some Mother's Day gifts....

In some exciting news, i have almost reached a milestone here on my little blog -

My next post will be my 100th POST and to celebrate i will be having a giveaway so stay tuned for that in the coming days!!

Thanks for stopping by!
