my creative space . . .

A day earlier than scheduled (I've jiggled my working week due to school stuff), and more like an abandoned creative space today! Some Harris Tweed ready to be cut into panels for 'beach balls'. I love choosing the colours and they're now all cut out and ready to be sewn together on my sewing machine at the weekend. They were supposed to be done during this week (or last!), but I kept getting distracted by other creative ideas, which I couldn't ignore. You know how it is!!

. . . and perhaps more interesting, here's 'Little S' winning streaks ahead at the 'egg and spoon' race at his School Sports Day today! He was absolutely delighted with himself, and why not? So the yummy Harris Tweed panels were abandoned for yet another day. I WILL get these pesky beach-balls finished this weekend!! More creative yumminess over at kootoyoo's.

Bye for Now!

Fresh air & running kids is fuel for creating I think.

Oh the beach balls are going to look fantastic with those colours and your choice of fabric. Look forward to seeing them finished.

The beach balls are going to be lovely! Maybe you could make some fabric eggs for the next sports day?!

Sometimes being too busy to make just gives you that much more enthusiasm for it later, when the time comes. :) Great color choices!

I really like the black and white tweed :D

do they not use real eggs any more at those races? that was half the fun, trying to to get covered in yolk and failing that, cover as many other people as you could :p

Hope you have found the time to make your beach balls. The fabric birds from your last post look great.
