My creative space.

Before I get into the creative stuff I 'd like to say the most enormous, gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who called, texted, commented, emailed, posted, read or blogged about me yesterday on my birthday. I had the best day. One of those days when I knew it was my birthday all day. I feel so lucky right now and its all because of you. THANK YOU!!!!

At the moment I'm screen printing t'shirts for the Daylesford Makers' Market and for the Dear Prudence shop.

Drawing designs and cutting stencils.

Printing.

Next comes ironing and sewing in labels and then delivering.

My creative space is also full of cup cake recipes thanks to Cathie, the best bloggy friend a girl could have. These cup cake papers and pretty sprinkles came in the mail yesterday for my birthday. After I press publish on this post I'm off to scroll down Cathie's list of gorgeous recipes. Thank you so much Cathie you really made my day.

I'm also about to get started on my softie for Mirabel after receiving Leonie's gift of this lovely ivory fabric. Thanks Leonie it was just the kick up the bum I needed, as Indi would say 'you rock!'.

And lastly is this bootie pattern I am struggling to follow. Usually the patterns I follow are written in words or abbreviations but this picture might just get the better of me. After pulling it apart a few times today I think my next plan is to try to write it out in words myself and see if that works.

I hope you have a fantastic and creative Thursday.
Pop on over to Kootoyoo for some more inspiring spaces.

  3. What an amazingly busy space I find you in again this week Kate! So much going on and it all looks fantastic. I haven't tried crocheting from one of those pictures yet. While the benefit of them is being multilingual, I'm sure I'd forget where I finished and started off.

    Happy b'day for yesterday, looks like you had a great time with some of the family in Melbourne and I hope the dinner went well with the girls that night...
    I'm not that great with graph patterns either, I prefer the written ones myself, you are very brave... Can't wait to see the finished booties... :)

    Take Care

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
