My creative space.

In my creative space this week I am working on my name tag for the big swaperama. Once it is finished covering up my partner's name, I think the crocheted ric rac will go around the inside of the ruffle to cover the stitching.

We are painting eggs with the local school holiday program.

I have just cut out the pieces and started stitching together a pair of pants for Miss Jazzy. These two bits go from the waist (under the waist band), to just above the knee. The pink sheety bits peeking out are the pockets.

I am sewing grey borders onto my grannies.

I am considering this as the start of the back of the cushion. I am not convinced though.

And I am crocheting this fancy trim to be sewn on the pants above.

So what are you working on today?
Why don't you head on over to Kootoyoo and pop in your link.

  9. Good gravy you are a busy bee! What colorful and lovely things you are working on. Might I ask what pants pattern you are using? Is it from the SCKL book? I love all the vintage bits you incorporate.

  11. I still wonder how you have time to do all the crocheting and sewing :p
    Sewing alone is taking so much time!

    I have a quick question tho.. are crocheting yarns different from knitting yarns? Or are they just the same?

  30. I’m so glad to see you pincushion is still a work in progress. I was starting to have a panic with all of the finished ones popping up everywhere! Mine is well underway, but has had some technical difficulties. Your potential back is looking great as are all of the projects on the go. I can’t wait to decorate eggs with Little Guy, but I think he will be more into it next year!

  31. So much great stuff at your place as always! We're hoping to paint some eggs with the Little Mister tomorrow - should be fun (and messy!). Have a great Easter! Nic

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.
