Buzzing around . . . my creative space

It's been such lovely weather here in the Hebrides this week - I took this pic last weekend, along the road from where I live.

There's been some crafting going on - a three-eyed Harris Tweed monster has been taking shape! - an idea from way-back-when in my sketchbook which reared it's head this week. It seems to have been a week for resurrecting old ideas for some reasons - a creative streak? I'd better roll with it!

This tweedy-monster may make an appearance at upcoming craft-fairs (some start at the end of next month). A visit to the Gallery Shop today brought a request for some of my beach balls which I love to make and haven't done some for a while, so time to get the sewing machine out!

I've been swanning it around in the local town today doing girly stuff like getting my hair cut and buying shoes (which doesn't happen very often!), so not a very creative day! I tested out my new 'air soluble' pen (I've had these before) on the scrap of tweed fabric beside my monster. You can just see a ghostly image of a chessman (see last post).

That's the sum total of my creativity today! (the monster was a very frantic creation from Tuesday), still with some pins in though, for some extra seams, decorative stitching, etc.

Today was a 'swanning about' day and I enjoyed it! More creativity over at 'kootoyoo'.

He's cute :) I think bees and wasps are very pretty. Nothing to be afraid of!

Thanks for the feedback on my monster - I'm delighted I finally got round to making one (about 2 years later!) Think I will keep this one simple but there may be more to come :)
