our creative space! . . .

I'm currently sharing this creative space (otherwise called a kitchen!) with my 'Other Half' who is contstructing a model 'Viking Boat' from wood for 'Little S's' school project. (You can see it in the background, clamped together on the work bench). The door's open 'cos it was such a lovely day! (yesterday actually)

My sewing machine is up and ready for sewing a rag doll body which I've embarked on this week. Here's the original drawing from 3 year's back when I started making them . . . (was it really that long ago ???)

. . . and one of my finished dolls - this one has the addition of a woolly knitted jumper for extra cosiness! They all have woolly bonnets - well you need them in the Hebrides!

I'm planning to hand embroider the features of this doll, so it'll be interesting to see how that goes! More creativity over at Kirsty's.

Oh 3 years is nothing when one thinks of the creative process. ;-)

I will be emailing you about the synchronicity of finding someone who lives in Stornoway - 50 years later!

I love the idea of sharing the creative space with the other half. Sadly, the most creative thing he does is initial his golf balls.

Lovely - I know that your work should inspire me to 'do' something but am afraid that my fingers would drop off if I left the keyboard! that said, your photographs are always stunning and instantly make me feel like I need to get out with the camera - maybe this weekend.

Enjoy the sunshine x

You and me both on sharing creative space! I sometimes wonder if this fact drives me.
