my creative space . . .

I didn't think I'd get round to posting today, but I took this pic of various rocks, pebbles, etc which had got covered in dust on a windowsill (they're drying off on an old towel). I thought they looked quite pretty after being rinsed in water, well they would, wouldn't they, hehe :) So far that's as creative as I've been today, but I like the photo and it inspired me to write up a blog post, so that's a plus!

The weather here is absolutely glorious today, I can hardly believe it - clear blue skies, not a breath of wind and you can see the mainland hills really clearly. Hence no urgency to go rushing off to sew, but perhaps a relaxed plod out the moor will be more in order.

I squidged (is that a word??!) a little bit of crafting in on Tuesday and sewed up this patchwork cushion - I'd cut the squares up sometime last year but never got round to finishing it. The colours of the tweed tied in nicely with the lovely Kaffee Fassett fabric I've been using lately (from a very kind blog-pal) so I think that's what prompted me to make it up and to add a fabric yo-yo for a bit of fab and funky detail. I do love the colours.

Hope you're having a fab and funky day, whatever you're up to - check out some lovely creative spaces over at Kirsty's place :)

Hey Alison, gorgeous pic of your part of the world. It must feel very relaxed there, without all the hubbub of cities, traffic, people etc............
Love your cushion, the pink certainly makes it pop and the yoyo is a nice touch.
