My Creative Space

My Creative Space over the last week has been a lot of fun … and very productive.

The most exciting part was the lovely sound of ripping, and then bundling, ten vintage sheets to send on their merry way to Ange's Ramblings. (PS And if you want to see LOTS more vintage sheets pop over to Ange's place ... there are more pictures there to drool over!


I was terrified at first but thanks to a really useful tutorial explaining why tearing was better (and it sure takes the pressure of cutting straight if nothing else) I was cooking with gas before I’d finished the first sheet. (I just wish I could get a job at Spotlight so I could rip cloth all day every day!).

I also finished Miss C's scarf but she won't let me take a photo of her wearing it! Instead I'll report a conversation between the little wretch (sorry, Miss C) and I … she did her usual opener which is a sort of throat-come-mind clearing and said something like “I’ve been thinking about annoying you and not wearing the scarf”

Quelle horreur, huh? Diabolical punishment, huh? I think not!

As I told her “No problem darling. I’ll just wear it myself!” And very glad I would be to get my hot little hands on one for myself after knitting two of them forothers! LOL

For more creative spaces; pop over to kootoyoo. She’ll have lots more to creative spaces to visit … and probably stories about far more grateful children than mine!

What beautiful sheets - ripping is so satisfying isn't it! Thanks for popping past little red clog and leaving a comment!

Quilary said...

oooh! that fabric looks so lovely all bundled up like that. I bet it was hard to put it into the envelope and send it off - or maybe the thought of what you might get back made it easier?

Tracey said...

the fabric looks great, especially all bundled up like that

Sarah@Dolls And Daydreams said...

Those sheets look fab! I think I’d be a tad scared about ripping rather than cutting though….

ooh, your little bundles of yummy sheet goodness look wonderful! I enjoy ripping fabric, I love that destructive sound that actually results in a lovely straight line! It's like a nice little surprise every time :D

Aha! I think you're the source of my fabulous giraffe- colored vintage sheet FQ! I've been making a giraffe t-shirt for my Bug, I'll try to post it in My Creative Space this week!

Tearing fabric's fun isn't it! When the Bug heard the Riiipppp! he sais "I want to tear some fabric too!"
