My creative space

Todays creative space has been a whirlwind crafty day....

Bec came to visit and we spent the entire day crafting, eating and op shopping with her little Miss, and my nephew Mr X.

I was putting together some new flower brooches.... lots of colour co-ordinating and cutting and stitching and glueing, while Bec was working on a Baguette Bag and the binding for her current quilt.

We took the kiddies out for lunch, and we just happened to be in the vicinity of the local Salvos, which meant that a pitstop was completly unavoidable!

Bec picked up these lovely cross stitched birdies, a bright yellow crochet tablecloth and a lovely turquoise blue chenille bedspread.


I bought this draftsmans chair which is going to be perfect for my craft bench. Mr X put it to good use while working on his painting. Little Miss made some lovely collaged pieces with different types of papers and some glue.

The day absolutely flew and before we knew it, it was time to pack and say goodbye.

Gotta love a day full of craft!

How lovely to be crafting alongside a friend. I'm thinking you should frame that kiddy painting in the picture... the use of colour is fabulous.
