My Creative Space


This is Snowball sporting a new custom made hat made by Rosie. She is sitting cheerfully on the kitchen bench supervising the recent crochet shenanigans that have been occurring here at No.42.


I'm getting closer to finishing my bag, it's been so satisfying and relaxing making it.


I love the rythm of crochet, and I love a pattern where I don't have to think much. As an over thinker it's so good for me!



I'm loving having Charlotte home for the holidays and she has just started her own crochet bag too! Never having picked up a hook before she took to it like a duck to water.



And is now crocheting her little heart out at every opportunity. She has chosen blue/white/grey for her colour combo and it is looking lovely.


On the bunny front things are buzzing along.
Two bunnies will be finished tomorrow, they are heading off to Sydney and into the arms of two little girls.


Here they are getting a bit closer to being finished, alongside their cousin who I adore. She is so soft and I love her flowery, Van Gogh inspired ears. I came across these bunnies tonight, huddled together by the sewing machine and I was struck with how tender I feel towards them. Silly really but they do seem to have personalities and I love that they are sitting there together waiting to come alive.

How is your creative space today? Is it buzzing, dreamy, empty, colourful, crazy? I have a busy day today but I can't wait to have a cup of tea later find out what everyone is up to. See you over at Kirsty's, hope you have a happy day xo
ps: I'm having a little trouble concentrating as I have just heard that we have our first female Prime Minisiter!!! How exciting, it was such a thrill telling my kids this morning. What an historic day! Go Julia!!!

How cool to have a fellow crocheter in the house! I'll email you a link to some crochet butterflies I came across yesterday. They are so cute. I feel the same kind of tenderness to my cuddlies too. I'm always pleased when they 'go to a good home'. :o)

Your bag is looking glorious Beck, can't wait to see when it's finished. I'm so pleased you are loving crochet, I feel the same about it. So soothing.
Your bunnies as always are just adorable. I love them without eyes and noses too. xo

Great bag Beck! I've always thought your bunnies have real personalities, watching you make them is like watching little children growing up and developing their own personalities!

Catherine said...

Sweet and happy space to come by and visit as always Beck. The bag is looking great and it's lovely to see your daughter enjoying her crocheting too. Enjoy you cuppa! xo

Tania said...

Oh, don't start me – don't. I am the Imelda Marcos of the bag world and now you've made bag crocheting look like the perfect notion.

PS. So thrilled the gorgeous van Gogh bunny retains both her lovely ears!

All your bunnies have such great personalities...I hope you have great holidays...

Peta @ Pippiwillow said...

HI Beck! Those bunnies absolutely have wee personalities. Just quietly waiting for the right set of hands to hold them and tell them all their owners secrets, hopes and dreams in one cuddle or whispered into those super lovely long soft bunny ears. I want to buy one for the small girl - can we come see the stash? And by the way...NICE hooking Sister! (not a statement you'd hear too often eh?) P xo

what a treat, hooking away with your big girl. my big girl just asked me to teach her to knit. your bag looks gorgeous and the bunnies of course are amongst my favourite things in blog land. enjoy the holidays
