my creative space...

Something for me this week.
After scoring a heap of crochet hooks at the local trash & treasure market (for 50c each!), I decided it was high time to sort myself out with a hook roll.

As I didn't have any suitable interfacing in my stash, I decided to use a scrap of wool batting. This has made it nice & chunky... & if I so choose to have a nap half way through a project... it shall do just the trick.
It is also incredibly wonky. I don't know quite how it got to be this way, as for the first time ever I used the quilting guide on my machine. Hmm, oh well.
I've also found the perfect project for these sweet little fat quarters. It's nice when spotlight has something cute.

I have two of those Spotlight fabrics too!

Love the roll! Mine stays with each new piece I am working on and stops me from having to get up and get stitch markers of scissors etc. while I am happily sitting and stitching. :)

I need one of those for my rapidly growing collection of knitting needles.

But I can't sew for ****. Hmmm.

Perhaps the sewing course plan should get accelerated. :)
