My Creative Space

Is all systems go.

Getting stock ready for the
Stitches and Craft Show in (eek!) a few weeks. Super-trouper Cam has it all under control (right, Cam...?). I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends at the show... and proudly seeing how very far the indie scene has come since that very first show in Melbourne and that first trip up to Sydney...when Angela and her team took us under their wings and gave us a platform (literally*) to reach a broader audience.
*We spent a lot of time on a stage at the first show.

A gorgeous bundle of felt arrived from Winterwood today, and I immediately hacked into it before I thought to take a photo. I'm saving even the tiniest scraps for appliqué, because it's just TOO beautiful a fabric to put in the kindergarten scrap bag (and it holds its shape even when it's a teeny-tiny scrap).
There was also a bit of embroidery floss action today.... but I'm afraid you'll have to wait a bit longer to see what I made.

Leah was busy in the office, too... but I didn't get a photo of her (she moves too fast).
...
Drop in to visit Kirsty and see who else is sharing their creative space today.

You can get felt that holds it's shape? I might have to check that out. The embroidery floss looks intriguing...

pain pills must be working then!

That felt does look nice, I've never liked working with felt, but maybe I had the wrong stuff.

Cheers,

Cam and leah together --- what a team !!! (even if they don't know about robot antennae).

Haven't things grown since that very first show ??? Sometimes I have to pinch myself...

i love the raw materials for craft ... endless possibilities. i'll also plump for the thread as my favourite for the day ... it always looks so light and delicate and can end up as part of anything. now all that remains is what are you making?

PS. LURVE that Winterwood felt. That's what my mice ended up being made from. Delish.

Yes, I'm looking forward to this as well...although, did I see correctly that it's at caulfeild racecourse this year?? Melbourne Showgrounds was so nice, and so much more convient!
