my creative space...

I'm so exhausted today, but somehow the creative juices are flowing & things are getting done. I've whipped up a little tag blankie for the wee one. This has been on my list for a while, but it is often nicer to look at the pretty ribbons than to try & wrangle them into this arrangement. I discovered it really wasn't that hard at all, silly girl.I've made my pin cushion for the big swap that the lovely Kate has organised. I'm so daunted by who I have to make it for... she's extremely talented & everything she makes is so neat & perfect. I hope she likes it. I can show you a sneak peak, because I don't think she reads my blog... well I hope not anyway. Ooh, I'm such a risk taker. I still have to find a few more bits & bobs to finish it off & then it shall be in the post. Thanks to Kate for organising, what a mammoth effort.
I've been slicing the alphabet out of a vintage picture dictionary. When I get my DIY hat on, this shall turn into artwork for the nursery. There's just a bit of painting & glueing to do, which will have to happen in the shed. Better get my bum into gear then.
Lastly, I've finished sewing the nappies & they're just waiting to be trimmed. I used the soulemama pattern from her handmade home book, with flannel sheets from the lovely Christie.
