My creative space

It all became clear. 
Back in this post  I wrote about my tea towel dilemma.So simple in the end - just involved cutting and pasting sewing into a square.

Why did it take me so long?!
And I think the crochet edging frames it nicely.

A lot of spinners christen their wheels with affectionate names.
Another revelation came to me this week.
I give to you The Lady and The Tramp.
The Lady (on the left) worth a bit more but prone to hissy fits.
The Tramp a bit of a clunker but reliable and a worker.

Isn't he cute?! He is on his way to Pip's for the The Mirabel Foundation christmas fundraiser.
And my blanket is progressing as fast as I can spin.
Softies For Mirabel

 And last but not least. My husbands stunning work. The coffee side table was a custom order and is now in it's new home. I was also lucky enough to get a new spinning hook and lazy Kate too.

It's Ourcreativespaces time again!


  1. Gosh where do I start..lol The cushion is absolutely brilliant and I would agree with the crochet edging it does finish it off nicely. Love the name of your wheels :D ahaha.. mine is called Miss Funky whilst the drumcarder is called The Beast..lol Your plushy toy and blanket look adorable in those colours and your hubby -> do you hire him out ?! ;D
