my creative space



This morning I got up with the intention of being very creative and get some pixies finished. I had nearly completed one the night before but had retired after "Lost" was finished (now what is going on in that show!). So the intention was there 80% but the achievement was more like 10%. I only had a couple of jobs, you know like pop the nappies in the machine and sweep the floor sort of stuff, not heaps of housework. But no....the kids had other plans. You know those days when the little one won't sleep for more than 20 min, you don't get to shower until lunch time and you escape mid arvo as it's all going crazy. So today I'm posting a piccie of where everything sat waiting for me to get to it. There's a nearly finished pixie in way cool cookie fabric, some more on top of the little yellow sewing box awaiting some attention and some paper waiting to be goccoed for thanks you's for pressies for the little miss, all waiting, waiting, waiting... Today all I achieved was some blanket stitiching on half a wing. That's it!

Oh look I just spied Tully's fabulous soup packet creation and some missing snappies (so that's where they are!) Much more interesting creative spaces over at Kirsty's.

I love the way your pixie looks like she's having a nap there on the desk! Very cute. K

Thats a really beautiful craft bench. I hope she's not getting too dizzy hanging upside down like that!

Your really doing well finding time to be creative with littlies. My oldest used to get so jealous of the sewing machine she would refuse to have anything to do with what came out of it, even if it was for her! Cherrie

Such a cute pixie dangling, waiting patiently.

Hehe! Looking for those snappies were you??!! Rest assured, your type of day was shared by mothers all around the globe. I don't think the pixie will mind waiting.
