My Creative Space

Thanks for your comments last week. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one juggling lots of things and trying to find a good balance between them all. I am trying to limit my computer use to one hour a day. We’ll see how it goes… How much time do you guys spend on the computer?

This week started out so promisingly. Khye asked if we could make some muesli bars. “Is that a good idea mummy?” he says in his 3 year old talk. “What a fantastic idea Khye!” So we mixed all the dry ingredients together. Khye was being a Really Useful Helper (just like Thomas the Tank who is a Really Useful Engine) and used his spoon to stir everything in the bowl. It was looking so yummy, so colourful, so promising…After mixing with the wet ingredients and smoothing the mixture into the tray we put it in the oven. That’s when things went wrong. I forgot to put the timer on. About 2 hours later I noticed the oven was still on. Another couple of seconds and I remembered the muesli bars were still in there too…No more needs to be said.

On the sewing front though, I did manage to get a stack of cutting out done.
Hopefully next week’s creative space will see me sewing this lot up.

Head over to
Kootoyoo for more creative spaces.

They do say that the making part is the most important, not the end result!! I am a real one for leaving things in the oven, or as I did recently, a wooden cutting board on the stove top. Nearly burnt the house down. Fun. What is that beautiful pile of colour? I'll have to pop back next week and find out xo
