My Creative Space

When your darling 3 year old is on holiday at Grandma and Grandad’s house for the week, and you find yourself with some extra time, what do you do?

Sew of course!

I’ve been in a bit of a pincushion frenzy lately. There are so many ideas flitting about and now I’ve got a few pincushions on the go. This one is finished. What do you think? Sean likes it. “That’s really good” he says, “That’s one of the best things you’ve ever made.”

Huh? I looked at him puzzled.

“It’s the label” he says, “The label really makes it.”
“And the blanket stitch” he says, “The blanket stitch looks good too.”

Considering I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember and considering I didn’t actually make or stitch the label and the blanket stitch, I’m just not quite sure whether to take this as a compliment or not.

“You’ve gotta keep this one” he says, “You’re not allowed to swap this one.” Guess I’m keeping this pincushion!

Other things in my creative space this week:

I finally sewed a zip on this crocheted cushion cover – an old favourite from the op shop that kept loosing its cushion insert until now. My retro swap is nearly done. It’s looking good and I hope my swap partner likes purple!

There’s also been lots of spunkee sewing but nothing to show for it yet.

Khye is due back from holidays today so next week is not going to be quite so productive. Until then happy creating!
