My Creative Space: at the coffee table


Today I am making a big mess.  But thats what vacuum cleaners were invented for, right?  Little bits of fabric offcuts are falling to the floor to be trodden underfoot and carried around the house stuck to said feet...

I'm making this mess rather centrally by sitting at the coffee table.  This plonks me right in the middle of my son's play zone so he can chat to me and play around me, he likes to watch the pinking shears do their little zig zag cut. 


I have been very lucky to get a commission to sew some simple gifts for a friend's shop.  Bunting is the first thing on the list of jobs.  There will be some very simple one sided triangular flags, and some more fancy rounded ones.  I've also been experimenting with incorporating some doilies - the end result is pleasing me very much.

Sounds like my kind of mess. Your bunting is looking pretty already.
