My Creative Space

Now that I am a woman of leisure (well for a few more weeks until the baby arrives!) I thought it was a great chance to participate in some activities with fellow bloggers.

So I'm starting things off here at Kootoyoo where there are some very clever people sharing their creative spaces.

Here's what's been on our dining table of late!


My studio space has been converted into the baby's nursery, so I've had to find space elsewhere to keep the creativity flowing!


I haven't sewn for years, so I'm cheating a bit and decorating some plain tees and bodysuits that I bought for the baby.

The whole piece is hand sewn, as it's obviously a finished garment and a bit tough to guide under a sewing machine. While it's been very time consuming it's also very relaxing.


I just need some blue in there somewhere now.


The big challenge is to finish it off before starting the next piece! Too many ideas!

There's knitting to finish, rugs, bibs and cushions to be sewn, and I still want to paint some illustrations to decorate the walls of the nursery!.....SO MUCH TO DO...and loving it!

oh, this is so cute and NOT gender specific!!! I have decided to keep the sex of Baby #2 a surprise. I don't think I could forgive myself if I found out! Goodluck with the rest of your incubation period (as my husband affectionately referes to it as!) x
