Noticing – my creative space…

July 8, 2010 97 Comments by Kirsty

My Creative Space Cookie

We’re still on school holidays. I’m soaking up the last couple of days with my fresh-back-from-the-snow kids and we’ve got big plans for today.

I’ve noticed how much the anticipation & lead up to something new excites me. I’ve been making myself finish off a few things before I got stuck into my next project. With it firmly in the forefront of my mind I do plan to spend a couple of hours curled up on the couch with this DIVINE cheater print from the ever fabulous Aunty Cookie. It’s available in three colourways in her store now.

Noticed elsewhere:
hairpin leg wine cabinet
(I really want to get my hands on some of those legs for the whole daybed idea)

Don’t forget to pop in & add your link if you’re playing along this week. I’ll looking forward to catching up next week.

    I can relate to the excitement of a new project… and the discipline it can take to finish others. : ) Enjoy the next couple of hours. I'm playing for the first time today, thanks for setting up such a wonderful concept for us all to get together.

    I smiled at your comment around finishing off old projects. I have a pile of unfinished small projects, and I'm trying to complete at least one each time I finish off a major project.

    The panel is lovely – I'm very interested to see where you go with it.

    Have a lovely day

    The only problem I have with lovely fabric like that is that I cut it up and use the separate pieces for quilting .. kinda defeats the purpose doesn't it..

    I've had to do a lot of finishing of other things before I can move on to the next, and it's definitely exciting to plan the next. Only problem is when I have to wait TOO long or when I keep having things to finish! ;)

    oh I know the feeling of finishing off projects so that you can get stuck into a new one. I have a few crochetty, knitty, and papercraft bits that I need to finish rather quite soon, so I can make room for the next lot. Loving your fabric. Enjoy the rest of the holidays.

    I've never quilted; however I have a slew of Thai silk remnants from clothes I had made years ago, and someone suggested I make french-seamed quilt squares with this then a blouse from the resultant material. Any other ideas or suggestions? I'd appreciate it!
