My Creative Space

I wasn't going to bother with My Creative Space this week ... I feel so blah and I’m working on another version of the same simple purple scarf, this time for Miss C. Pretty, but it's so boring to sharing the same thing every week.

So I'm going to cheat and show another project I put down a couple of weeks ago ... cross stitch hearts I plan to use for a matching pincushion and sewing roll.


On a much happier note I’m so thrilled with another creative space I have a vested interest in … Cam from CurlyPops to be precise.

A few weeks ago I passed along some Ink & Spindle fabric I bought on the Sew It Together bus tour with a request to make a camera bag that I can use for the camera when it’s wearing its flash … which it usually is.

Check out Cam’s creative space for the “oh so wonderful so far” results (and here’s Cam's photo repeated here because I’m so excited I have to have a copy too!).


It’s looking amazing. I love the black denim Cam had to hand with the Ink & Spindle fabric. The black will set it off so nicely and be such a nice contrast ... and to give it a little extra pop some black will show on the outside.

Now ... I have to wait a week until I get the bag. I know it's a week but I feel worse than a kid at Christmas. I really can’t wait.

Thanks Cam for doing such a great job and for your wonderful ideas along the way.

I love the cross stitch. I did one with hearts on it, will have to dig it up and post a pic. Your camera bag looks great - very exciting.
