My Creative Space

A tiny tiny sneak peek at some special sewing going on over in My Creative space at the moment. It's so sneaky that what I am working on has to be done when Boyance isn't home (hint, hint!) 

So after work today while Boyance is out to tea with a friend I'll carefully be taking "it" out of it's special bag, putting on some TV and sewing my night away. 

For more Creative Spaces.

Blogtoberfest Day 24: My Place and Yours

So when Vic was giving us the option on this weeks' MPAY I was against having to show my stash (or secret under the bed, stuffed in draws etc etc stash)! I should have remembered how bad my pincushion situation was as well...
So beside my sewing machine we have... 

Yukky cheap pins that I don't want fraternizing with my good pins...

Longer pins that I like to use for piecing long strips of fabric together when sewing quilts together and a few stray quilting safety pins that do have their own tin but that was a little too messy to photograph...

And look! An actual pin cushion! 

Here is where my slight OCDness comes in, good red pins in the orange square, good fine and sharp white pins in the red square, needles on the blue and forked pins in the green!

Now that I have shared my disgraceful lack of pincushions I really should be off and make myself some more...

Playing along over here!

Blogtoberfest Day 23: Sunday Snippets

We spent all day yesterday in the lovely weather looking at wedding reception places and finished off the night with a family dinner at the Boyance's aunt and uncle's place.

Meant to post this last night but crashed into bed and was asleep within 5 minutes of being home!

Blogtoberfest Day 21: Two dolls for two little girls

About four months ago my cousin bought her two little girls to come and visit us.

CB1 (cousin's baby one) who is four was devastated to find the our old toy does not contain toys like hers does but wood for the fire and the other big box (my blanket box) is full of tupperware!

After she made my dad open and close the wood box a few times just to double check there was really no toys in there, I remembered my ooshka babushkas on my bed.

Oops, just realised I never blogged about the other one!

CB1 carried them both around all day and had a hard time giving them up when she had to hop in the car and go home. I promised to make her one of her own before I saw her next.

Fast forward four month and my cousin told her I would be coming to visit. 
First thing she said was "Is she bringing dolly for me"! My cousin had not said one word about it for four months and she still remembered!

So here is my very happy customer!

"My" two little girls and their dollies.

Think CB2 may not understand dolly is for cuddling not crawling over!

Hi everyone!
