How are you all going today?
I'm feeling a tad frustrated!
I have been spending a bit of time on Pinterest, and there are so many gorgeous inspiring things to look at, and all these ideas charging through my head, things I just have to make, and then I look at my work space and it is in this state! There is a big morning gone tidying this room up so I can start creating. Doh!
It seems that everything cluttering up the rest of the house was chucked in here during the Big Party Cleanup of 2011. ( I'll admit, most of the clutter has something to do with my latest crafty tangents, and I do tend to spread my making through out the house)
My poor sewing machine is kind of buried in the middle of all this stuff, and I need her to be in a nice spacious place ready to hum along, whipping up some cuteness.
I have posted these photos to make myself clean up, tomorrow morning is supposed to be stormy, so no gardening jobs to distract me! Just you wait for the 'after' photos!
This clean up could take awhile, so to make sure I don't forget all the lovely things I want to make here is a list to remind myself
*felted balls, then colourfully embroidered and made into Xmas decorations (must buy wool rovings)
*embroidery on calico/cotton/felt then cut out and stuffed and hung on a tree
*cute little wallet sewn from scraps of fabric (saw this in the Mollie Makes with the peas on front cover)
*in same vein, cute patchworky journal cover
* hybrid fabric and crochet pillow slips ( stripes of fabric and stripes of crochet in between, I think it will look better than it sounds!)
*soft toys from my thrifted blankets, elephant first
*cute little felt mice from pattern I bought the other day (must show you guys, soooo cute!)
* mini crochet squares for cushion cover
*crochet polka dot blanket (big project - probably 2012 I think)
*knitted coin purse
*crocheted lacy trims from Japanese book
*patchwork pillow slips for our bed, with cute crochet edges
*some paper mache creations
*knitted beekeeper blanket...............
Thats all I can think of off the top of my head, I also have all my unfinished stuff to work on too, so definitely need to get my crafty mojo going!!
Do you have lots of ideas going around your head too?
There aren't enough hours in the day!
Have a great day!
