Good things/My Creative Space Thu 11 Feb 10

GOOD THINGS/MY CREATIVE SPACE - Northern Craft Bonanza
Woo hoo ... it's time to play My Creative Space again, one of my fave days of the week. Check out the other fab spaces over at Kootoyoo.

I went to my second Northern Craft Bonanza so my creative space for today is very compact ... my lap in fact. And even worse; it's as dull as dishwater because I’m still working on the same cross stitch I started three weeks ago (yawn! ho hum!) ... and please let me finish this very soon.

Because I shared a photo of my latest craft project yesterday, I'm going to post lots of pictures of others' portable creative spaces to share ... and because they're far more interesting than mine.

Curlypops was working on this gorgeous super cape for her nephew. All it needed was the finishing touch of his initial "M" on the star. Lucky nephew.



Betty Jo from Lino Forest was working on some more of her fab creations ... we got to see some one of a kind butterflies she'd made as a special order. I wish I'd got a couple of shots of them because they were amazing.



Check out Bec caught in action making a dishcloth. Oh, and if you think Bec looks elegant in her pretty dress and one of Betty Jo's owl necklaces ... you totally missed her shoes. They were the bomb.



We had one new visitor (Rachael?) ... says the newbie who's only been twice ... and she was working on the cutest skirt for her daughter. A crazy good mixture of recycled fabrics that her daughter will love. And check out the matching pincushion and etui (needle holder) ... very fancy.


Last of all, Lara was finishing off this quilted cushion. I don't think it matters if the pattern is somebody elses (after all imititation is only the highest form of flattery) because the choice of colours, the finish, the artistry is all yours ... and it rocks.


And that's what I think we all do in our own ways ... we create art.

Thanks guys for a great night.

Wow Susan, your camera really does take amazing photos in low light!
Lara was sewing the cushion, and I'm pretty sure Rachael was sewing the gorgeous skirt.
See you in a fortnight!
PS - Do you mind if I use a couple of your photos in my post tomorrow. They're so much better than mine.

Isn't it amazing to see all the different things that everyone is working on.

We are very fortunate to have such a great photographer in the group.
