My Creative Space
I love the idea of My Creative Space, I tried to do it last Thursday and got as far as taking the above photograph, which contains a stripey knitted jumper (now finished picture coming soon), a small box made out of playing cards - more of that later, a vintage childs Simplicity pattern from which I am making a pair of elasticated knickers with a bib and straps( I made the little shirt a couple of weeks ago), and a pink and white granny square - thanks to Gemma at Gemmipop Designs for initiating me into the Church of the Seventh Day Granny Squareists (all who worship there, will be seated in heaven at the right hand side of God on a really comfy sofa wrapped up in a granny square blanket). I'm not sure where the granny squaring will take me but Gemma's blanket, as seen on her blog and (omg) Meet Me At Mikes, is very inspiring.
Anyway it is now THIS Thursday and here is my space:
Here is my little jumper finally finished, and here is a close up of the little bug buttons that I bought in Liberty Bell a quilting shop in Chester:
Check out the little gingerbread couple. Not sure what they will end up on yet.
I will at some point put on a couple of pictures showing how to make the playing card box, it's very easy and a great way to use up packs that have become incomplete.
