my creative space

have been extending last weeks 'cut and stick and stitch' to 'PLAN, cut, stick and stitch'. This has taken some effort.
SO far have made up some of my favourite foods. Not sure how gnocchi would look if a little person was sporting it. Or vegemite toast. Watcha think?

Oh and i got some tags made up in preparation for a homemade christmas!

This parcel is here, and I am wanting to make a quilt with it (and some others). This would be a serious extension of skill and equipment (i currently own a 5 pack of needles)... Any ideas would be very warmly received!

Hi Robyn, Keep up with that blanket stitch. I am totally loving it, and veg toast could be very good too.

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. Re the Aesop cream, just buy the thickest cream you can, and go easy with the essential oils!

your tops are gorgeous. And I love the fabrics you've used.
I think vegemite on toast could look actually quite sweet in all seriousness, using two fabrics with a bit of layering.
thanks for you lovely comment on my blog too x

I like your applique motifs on the little singlets Charmaine

Yep I think most of us agree that vegimite on toast would look really cute on a tee, not real vegemite... its a pain to get out. As for not having a machine, handmade quilts are the best. check out hexagons, some people set aside wednesday to showcase their latest hexies, all stitched by hand. not sure who though. ask mr google :-) thanks for visiting my blog

I had those smurf sheets when I was little, ahh the memories!

Love your tops, perfect for the homemade Christmas.

Wendy said...

Your appliques are stunning, but those Smurf sheets are what made my heart go pitter-pat!

Oh the smurf fabric is adorable. I'd forgotten about smurfs. And I love that applique, especially the apple. Too cute.
Ah yes, the Girl Guides. Three Band-Aids were dispensed and one more girl who cut herself but thought she didn't need one. She told me she could "be strong". Too cute.

Kate said...

Love the pair and apple!

Flotsam Friends said...
