my creative space
Having just returned from a quick visit to that big crafting chain and the local patchwork shops, I haven't achieved anything creative today. However, the little miss has nodded off to sleep and i have a couple of hours to kill before i have to do the scool pick up, so it's off to some sewing I go.
Firstly, I'll be using some of the bias from the abundance purchased at spotlight. The latest Polly Dolly (as yet unnamed) is so close to finish. A final stuffing and finishing of the sweet little apron and she's all ready. Hopefully her friend won't be far behind and once I've pre-washed the hot pink chenille I found at the local, then she'll have a litle pink haired friend. How excited was I to find the pink chenille! I do love a dolly with pink hair!
Other things on the go are pants for the kidies. Tik got me 4 metres of denim so i've cut 3 pairs of pants out, but honestly have not dinted the great big pile of denim sitting beside my sewing table. The rednut boy goes through a pair of pants a day the little grub, so I'm sure I'll have put a bit of a dint in it by the end of winter.
Recently a pair of pants tikki and I collaborated on many moons ago came up for sale. They had the cutest little pocket with a painted strawberry and the red gingham trim. Well I'd forgotten how much I loved those pants, so pulled out the trim for a pair of pants for Sage. Sadly I'm nearing the end of the mushroom material, oh my how I'veloved this print. anyway best get to it....
