{my creative space}

My head space has been happy enough for some creativity lately. 
It's been a while, I've often been too overwhelmed at the day to day running of a household; organising lunches, dinners, baby sleep times, activities for toddlers, and housework (ugh!) that I have spent months just staring longingly at beloved sewing machine!

But, creativity is returning, ever so slowly. And the weather has been most agreeing for nights of crochet and crafting. I feel a me returning slowly!

Cheeky tea towels, machine appliqued... these were fun! And I love this waffle fabric in yummy yellow (you should look at Tammi's yummy yellows too, her buttery mugs are delicious!)

And aaaahhhh, crochet. My release after a long day. Lovely husband made me a cup of tea and I hooked to my hearts content...

And some more yummy yellow, testing out pretty coasters!


Joining in with Our Creative Spaces for the first time today!


  1. It's wonderful that your creating mojo has returned and you have certainly not disappointed with these yummy delights. The teatowels are very novel, the colour perfect!!

    And well I don't need to tell you how much I love that little tea cup or those coasters.

    My buttery yellow mugs got dressed mighty fine last night in a bit of crochet of their own :)

    Keep it up Em.
