My Creative Space

Today is trying to squeeze out a couple more aprons between running around after the little people - Thursday's are a blur this year.
(sorry rubbish photo's today - camera battery nearly flat, dark cloudy morning, kids fighting and we're running late around here as usual)
Sunday is market day (and the stock box is looking a little skinny...).

If you're a Melbourne person and fancy something to do on Sunday morning why not come and visit the Mulgrave Makers Market.

Lots of great stuff, yummy food, wonderful farmers market and lovely smiling people like me who would love you to say Hi!
Hope to see you there!

Pop over to Kirsty's to see lots of clever stuff.

What the tuck?

Some of you asked what was the go with the red tucks yesterday.
Surprise, surprise-its an apron.
Just playing with ideas for the next market which is coming around very quickly - crikey!! I must make something else soon otherwise one tuck apron is going to look pretty bloody lonely!
It was fun to make and not quite as time consuming and fiddly as my other 60's style numbers. Does that make me lazy ???

Struggling with the motivation to get off my chocolate eating bum and get on the sewing machine.

Hopefully a weekend away in the sunny state of QLD (Happy Birthday Jodie!) will help.
(Yep that was me bragging! )

Hope your weekend is fabulous too!

My Creative Space...

Should involve pleats, tucks and aprons
but will be spent behind this
Hooning around on these until tea time.
I always thought the Mum's Taxi was a farce for indulgent mothers.
I'm sorry I take it all back!
I was a foolish, naive mother who has now had her rude awakening!
For those with more time (and better organisational skills) check out more creative spaces at Kirsty's.

Going a bit dotty

Yes I am going a bit dotty (I'm sure that's not a surprise to some!)
I love this fabric and have purchased a bucket load.
Other than lovely little spotty aprons for kiddies, it makes an excellent tablecloth (oh how I love them .... sad but true!)
This is a table cloth for my sister's house warming present pretending to be wrapping paper!
Inside is a platter (can't have too many, can you ??) and heaps of plastic plates and cups as their 1st baby will be joining us in a couple of weeks - can't wait!!!!!!

Hmm maybe a spotty cot quilt .....

Look for spotty stuff in the ohjoh shop (when I finish them and get organised!!!) or at the next market (Mulgrave Makers Market 27th March)

Hope all is good and dotty at your place too
