creative space ...reclaimed

This week I've been attempting to reclaim my sewing room back from the ever encroaching kidlets.  I've tidied, evicted dolls and soft toys, picked up a billion picture books... repeatedly, subtly snuck out the jigsaw books (Whoever invented jigsaw books really needs to take a good hard look at themselves, they seriously drive me insane!!!)  and probably restacked my ottobre pile about oh, at least three times a day. Toby is rather fond of dismantling them from the bottom shelf of the bookshelf.

Finally nice and tidy I sat in there today for a bit of "me" time.  Two simple tasks to do; the first one choose a button from the three selected for this scarf.  I needed a chai to accomplish that one. See my cute knitting cup? My lovely sister Megsie gave me that. 
The second one was to arrange some charm squarms for a little quilt top. I got them laid out but then Toby attacked and crawled over it, plonking his butt in the middle before attempting to eat the squares.  *sigh* So needless to say, that didn't get accomplished.

Oh well, at least I had a lovely cuppa while I stashed some new fabrics and discussed with Miss Rainbow what to do with this:

and this;

more creative spaces over at kootoyoo


  1. I love the colour of your scarf...which button did you chose? I quite liked the top one!

  2. ooh what is the princess and pea fabric and the fairies one?

  3. tOooooh, I can't wait to see what you create with those beautiful fabrics!
    green with envy ;)

  4. the princess and the pea is from heather ross's far far away range from kokka and the fairies are alexander henry's sprites of tillbrook.
    they're lovely!!
