Creative Kick up the Butt
Yep - that's what I'm needing! A creative kick up the butt.....to get me moving on decorating the house and making some new crafty goodness.
Some friends and I are having a table at a craft fair in November - I only do this once a year and am sharing the table with 3 others so don't really need to go overboard - but so far I've only managed to make one thing - that's not going to fill a quarter of a table!
But, the colours are beginning to inspire....I'm even contemplating cutting into the felt that I brought back from Japan....hmm...18 months ago.....
The colours of the hyrangeas are so beautiful...amazing how one plant can have so many different shades growing and how the agree with my favourite colour palettes!
Here's the start of a few pieces.....I'm trying to cut it all out so that I can do some sewing on my plane journey this week...a needle and a dental floss dispenser to cut the thread are both ok for the airlines so I can at least do something....it does mean being organised of course!
Not much has been going on in the house decorating recently.....waiting on the electrician finishing.....but I did receive this beautiful house warming present from my friends visiting from Brazil - it's a carved piece of wood....and they couldn't have chosen better....if I had seen it myself in a shop I would have wanted to buy it.
You really can't tell the colour from the photo, but it's hanging on the newly painted wall in my living room - no more red....now a calming shade of pale pale grey. It was nice to know when I read an article about Debbie Bliss' (knitwear designer extrordinaire) home that I was in such esteemed company with my colour scheme - greys, plums and bright pink!
