My Creative Space





My space has been a fun space lately. A thinking space. A colourful space.
At home I've been working on some new little projects...




..tweaking some old ones...


and matching up fabric & cardis.



I'm also enjoying the pieces of fabric that were trimmed from a new quilt & sewed up into long, long ribbons. They remind me of the rainbow snake, only a much skinnier version! There is something very pleasing about all those vintage fabrics mixed up together, they make me smile.


My space has also been a thoughtful space this week as we celebrate Charlotte's final days at school. Here she is, below, just after her Valedictory service, holding the book she was awarded. The girls were able to choose their books and Charlotte picked a childhood favourite, 'Tim & Charlotte' by Edward Ardizzone.              

My space is an emotional & joyful place too this week as my baby turns 18 today.
I'm off to share a special lunch with her at our favourite cafe,
My space is full to the brim with love, for my big girl.
Is it really 18 years since she came into my life? All bright eyed and beautiful, my buttercup baby.
Happy, happy birthday Charlotte!
I hope to see some of your spaces to tonight when I get home, thanks for hosting Kirsty!
Enjoy your day lovelies,

see you soon xo

I know how you feel! My baby will be 18 at the end of November. I drive in the car with her to work and her exams and I have to pinch myself that this gorgeous grown up sitting next to me is my little ragamuffin.
