my creative space . . . just chillin :)

Not a huge amount happening this week - I have a lovely long list of 'things to do' in my crafty diary and have managed to tick off ONE so far! I think there may be a little 'burn-out' syndrome going on after last week's fair :) I did manage to edge a couple of my granny squares in black double crochet - really enjoying having this as a background project, perfect when the motivation for other stuff isn't quite there!!

Baked some scones at the beginning of the week (think I ate most of them!) and am enjoying browsing through this fabulous book - Craft Activism, which is giving me all sorts of notions and ideas - just love it! (I think some yarn-bombing is definitely on the cards, hehe!!)

It was my niece's birthday this week so I made her one of my 'tweedie' cupcake cards (with sprinkles of course!) . . .

. . . and managed to add some of my craft fair stock to my Esty shop - hurray!! :) Looking forward to adding more stock as I make it for the next fairs (I've booked a small number over the Summer). Really enjoyed finishing off these rustic 'tweedie' garlands which I'd started last Summer - no rush!!! Here's the heart one which I added to my Etsy shop . . .

Loads of ideas in my head at the moment - just got to process 'em! :)

More creative types over here - Byee!

P.S. Blogger is really driving me nuts at the moment since it changed over - aaaaaaargh! Anyone else having difficulty getting to grips with it - or am I just getting old, don't answer that one hehe!

Oh what a sweet Tweed inspired blog, just lovely. The cup cake is adorable. I just donated a bunch of tweed fabrics do charity, wish you lived closer!!
I've just changed over to a new computer & blogger seems to be same as it was the last time it went bonkers & i finally got things on track again, i'm running smoothly, holding my breath.
Greetings from Australia & your new follower, love Posie

I really like that black edging--not something you often see on grannies, but such a nice contrast!
