My Creative Space


I was in the sewing cave for a while today, with my old-faithful machine. It felt like home to me. I wondered why I have never ever tired of sewing. I marvelled at trying to guess the (thousands of?) hours I've spent at this machine over the last decade and a half.

I also wondered what possessed me to make something in hot pink satin.


There was also much excitement over preparations for tomorrow night. A dishwasher full of champagne flutes and several boxes of bottles stuffed into fidges throughout the building, name-tags and guest lists......
one sleep to go.

Other creative spaces can be seen over at Kirsty's. Thanks Kirst - you're the mostest!

Oh, yay, so excited! And still sewing as well, clothes are made, now for a lunch bag to show off! Hmm, pink satin is kinda scary, if anyone can do it, you can. See you then!

So bummed I am going to miss tomorrow! Just don't think I can fit it all in. Sorry I couldn't chat more at Stitches but I didn't want to interupt you too much in sales mode. Have lots of fun

I know what you mean. I LOVE the fact that I never get tired of sewing.

Your sewing machine looks like an old friend, that's nice. :)

BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO PULL OUT AND SET UP OLD FAITHFUL EVERY TIME.

(it's a theory - and one that has me knit knit knitting).

So. You're whipping up a little hot pink affair for Friday night drinkies?

Hmm I'm intrigued about the pink satin too! I'll be there tomorrow night (but a teensy bit late I'm afraid!)
