The Quilt Project

The wonderful Quilt Project that was an idea hatched by Kirsty at Kootoyoo was launched today. I was so sorry that I couldn't be there in person and see all the wonderful squares, but Kirsty has done a stirling job with the Quilt Project Blog so we can get a good look at what everyone has done.

When I first spotted this I jumped in and said I would make a square, then a couple of days later I realised that I had to actually make a square, send it off and let it be seen next to all the lovely ones that everyone else had made. It was then that I considered telling Kirsty I couldn't do it. I had a stern word with myself and spent about 3 weeks racking my brain as to what I could put on my square.

The Quilt is now made and it is really wonderful and I am so pleased that I have been a part of it. Thank you to you all.


My Creative Space

I am posting my creative space just a little early this week. Reason being is I am going to have no time to join in tomorrow and still want to be part of the fun!! I need some fun as work is so busy I just find I have no time for myself, and my 'me' time is making stuff.

The one little window within all of this I crammed in a whole bunch of things which have all only been partly done. I have an apple brooch waiting to have the back put on, a Russian Doll bag to put a label on, a couple of small skull keyrings to put together, some 'crossed' bones which look very phallic! And I have to get on with the skull T as it is an order for someone. Eeeeek! And I know the next space of time I get to myself I must get that machine out and go for it!!!

My Creative Space

My Creative Space has changed somewhat over the last three or four weeks. My 'real' day time job has picked up again and I have a lot more work to do right now. Which is great cos it means I get paid, as I am a freelancer no work, no pay.

So instead of making things and immersing myself in fabric and thread I am immersing myself in html and Photoshop and collecting peoples stories for a project I am working on, which I really enjoy but I had quite got used to spending lots of time making and blogging! I am sure normality will return and my workload will return to zilch!

So this is a late Creative Space today, it is 10.35 pm on Thursday and just had to spend some time making something before I go to bed! So I got out my nice threads that I got from a charity shop for around 20p. These threads are really fine, not a lot more than sewing thread. I am sure the proper crocheters amongst us will be familiar with them. My Mum used to use them to do tatting, but I have never used them before. So I got out my crochet hook that my Mum gave me about a month ago and had another go at making a flower that she taught me. I will say nothing about my efforts! But I will try to improve as and when I get the opportunity!
