My Creative Space.

Today my creative space is anywhere I can find a splash of colour and a bit of inspiration. Yesterday I had new (and mightier) lenses put into my glasses and since then I am astounded by the crisp lines that surround everyone and the depth of colour of EVERYTHING. I feel like I am on some sort of chemical high. Last night I was looking at a jar filled with buttons on the kitchen table. This jar has been sitting there for a week and I was astounded by it. The glass had a texture to it I had never noticed and the lustre of the buttons made me feel as though I was looking at a dutch masterpiece.
Aside from that it is all sewing for me at the moment, the sewing of costumes and of presents. I have a little Cath Kidston cowboy mug to pop into the stuff-collecting-bag made for one of Archie's friends and pictured in the top photo. I love that car fabric soooooo much it was a little hard to cut into.
For more creative spaces hop over to Kirsty's.


  1. It's so hard to cut into fabric we love but it's so rewarding to see it used as well... If you are after a splash of colour you should call past my blog. We had a family photo shoot and the photos are truly colourful and creative... xo Steph

  2. Stuff-collection bag! Awesome. I have long coveted that fabric - great use. And happy glasses-wearing.

  3. beautiful pops of colour {i have done the glasses thing too ~ except my last pair were scratched to the proverbial, what a difference a new pair made!}
    i love that little bag too ~ the fabric is just gorgeous

  4. I love the idea of a "collecting bag". Wonderful!! And I know what you mean about cutting into your favourite fabric. Hope you have a sensational weekend:)

  5. Did you make that little car pouch? Love the fabric. It looks like it matches some scooter fabric I usde this week. xx

  6. I love that you are experiencing the world through new eyes now you have your new lenses. It must be quite a high. Love the little bag and I'm very jealous of your mini boden catalogue!

  7. I have recently had new glasses and lenses so I know exactly what you mean....I am still getting those moments of clarity, why do we leave it so long before we replace the old faithful pair of glasses??

  8. I love your blog! Your crochet is beautiful!
    I take you to my blog so I read you forever!
