In my creative space today....
haha well this is the dining table, not a lot of dining going on here today.
Let's break it down shall we?
At one end, Reuben's art work.
He set this up on Monday and has been working away at it ever since.
He's really enjoying it and I'm enjoying just letting him potter away
and not getting stressed about it.
In the middle...
Piles of cut out projects.
Like this one for the parents of a little girl who attended our Playcentre
until her recent passing away.
She was an only child, I can only imagine their desolation.
I really want to finish this before Christmas.
This is actually two quilts, one for Liz and one for my sister Sharyn.
This is a next-year project I think.
Although I did finish sewing strips last night while Reuben was
faffing about getting ready for bed
and cut the blocks this morning (I got up EARLY)
This is for one of our street Whanau, Dan, using some of his own shirts
and a few neutrals. Quite manly I hope.
His birthday 9 December. [gulp]
This is for James' birthday. 10 January [sigh]
This is a maybe this year maybe not!
I may have mentioned here that I was gifted the most incredible stash.
I've cut some large squares from some of my favourites
(you know I love squares) and I'm hoping for a large quilt to use outside.
This is a neat pile of large scraps.
I'm gonna give this away sometime soon.
This end of the table is my day job.
Quotations to enter for our work for Fletchers.
In case you were wondering about what Miss Annie is doing,
she has another cold and one thousand insect bites
(this is because the water/sewage system in Christchurch is broken
and there is water lying about everywhere and hence millions of insects)
Slight diversion here....
Does anyone have a natural remedy to prevent bites??
This is going to be a looooong summer of insects and I don't want to put chemicals on her.
She's watching Dora and babysitting the kittens and just resting.
Sweet baby, I do love her.
So that's whats on my creative space,
the ironing in the background which now comes up to the sofa
is not on my list haha.
