my creative space . . .

I'm on the playmat again which is a bit unfortunate from the point of view of taking photographs! It's a bit difficult to see where the Motorway begins and the Roundabout ends, in between tweed off-cuts, reels of thread, templates . . . etc. But that's my creative space!! Going by previous comments, it's a truly cross-continental mat - which is lovely to know!

In the pic there are:

(1) fabric covered buttons waiting to be packaged (they may be waiting a while going by my previous track record!!),

(2) some freshly cut Harris Tweed check/plaid butterfly bodies and some colourful tweed waiting to be cut into butterfly wings

(3) . . . and my favourite mug, which I shouldn't be using 'cos the handles cracked and I'm just asking for an accident to happen - serves me right if it does!! (but I love it).


Here's a finished butterfly/bug - just right for little hands (or big ones!) to hold. The ones above are destined for the Gallery shop which kindly takes my tweedy creations!! More creativity over at Kirsty's blog.

That butterfly is gorgeous! And I'm so glad that I know someone else who makes things and then takes ages to get them packed up etc. I still have things I made before Christmas waiting to be photographed!!
