Good things: My Creative Space

I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation of My Creative Space ... because I’ve been creating! Yes ... after so long not doing anything I have actually been doing something.

Knitting: I've started the lace scarf at least five times. This sounds bad but there's been such a huge learning curve like tension and learning the pattern so I now feel as though these are behind me ... and the rest is scarf! And I now have my seating issues on the train sorted out and about an hour per day to get some work done.


Wall plaque: I’ve had these papers for so long and I’ve been longing to do something with them. They’re so elegant and timeless ... and by the Australian firm Kaiser Scrapbooking. Their stuff is so nice.

Cushion: I’ve been promising myself to get to this for so long ... and on the weekend I picked up some vintage buttons from Cheeky Little Monsters at the Daylesford Makers’ Market. The buttons are amazing ... and Tania's stuff was really cute but I don’t have any littlies to buy for any more.


How's your crafty week been?

Those learning curves do require a bit of perseverance. The lace scarf looks great.

Love the colors on those buttons. I keep trying to crochet something, but after a few lines, I'll realize it's not even (because I always lose count) and unravel the darn thing.

I think you deserve a round of applause for that knitting goodness. I have attempted to go beyond the knit and purl and haven't succeeded. Bravo to you for getting this far! :)
