My Creative Space

School holidays for us has not been the most exciting time. We have done very little in the way of plays and doing holiday type activities. We have all been a bit under the weather and have spent time together at home playing board games, gardening and painting the garden shed. Today, after cleaning for what seemed like hours I took the leap into the studio. I hate not making things and get a bit edgy when i'm not creating. I only needed a little taste and so far this is it! I've been wanting to try this since Jodie from RicRac posted her tutorial.


My first attempt is not the most exciting but I just used some scraps to make sure I could do it. The green of the cushion is actually a beautiful emerald green not this yucky dark green. Its obviously not finished but that's tomorrows task. I need to top stitch to attach the patterned fabric and of course actually finish the actual cushion!

My Creative Space

The past week I must admit there has been a distinct lack of creativity in my household. But, the month before it was buzzing....

A few costumes for the girl's school concert.

A recycled dog outfit from last year made an appearance as a chubby giraffe. The preppie was more than happy and totally proud of her performance.

My little street urchin had a ball painting herself dirty and despite not feeling well did a fabulous job!

Some new Luggage tags. Now I just need to take more photos and get them into my madeit store.

John Butler Trio

The husband and I had a great night with friends on Sunday night. Indian for dinner followed by an amazing concert. I love John Butler but had never seen him live. He was amazing as was the other members of the trio, particularly Nicky Bomba the drummer!

Love, love, loved it!

I also really enjoyed Blue King Brown. They had so much energy and their music is awesome.

At My House...

At my house today there was supposed to be a hive of activity. Instead it was a very lazy day where virtually no housework was even attempted as I simply couldn't be bothered. I took time to smell the roses or at least admire the green-ness of our backyard.

Market Day

Yesterday was the Sugar & Spice Children's Market in Woodend. I had a great day, enjoyed a superb coffee, loved listening to the tunes of David Cosma, meeting all the other super clever retailers, and finally meeting Ali who organised such a great day (she also has grandparents called Bob & Mabel !!!!)

So........................ today I should be unpacking the left over stock and cleaning the house but I just can't seem to manage anything too physically taxing, I'm pooped!
