My Creative Space

Opps it has been over a month since I last blogged, and here I was planning at least a post a week this year, oh well.
Why I have not been posting, no major reason, I just have not had time
In fact I have had so little time to sew that it was around 4:30 the afternoon before Bastian started his first session of Kinder that I realised that I had yet to start his Backpack, I had bought the material and this pattern ages ago but had put it aside to “do when I had a chance” over the Christmas holidays. Well the holidays were over and while he did have other backpacks he could use I was determined that he would use the one I had planned. Well 9 hrs later (yes that is correct I was up to 2am) in between feeding Lachie, having to settle him back to sleep on multiple occasions and of course eating, it was all finished. Bastian loves it which made it all worth the lack of sleep, although my darling husband almost got a kick in the shins when he asked me in I had just recovered an existing backpack.

You may have noticed a Facebook page link over on the right hand side, that is one of the reason for my lack of time, my Mum and I had set up a little business selling a variety of handmade items. So far we have had a stall one two occasions at Mornington Wednesday Main Street market and hope to get a regular spot there closer to Christmas.
As for other quilting news I have finished Bastian Plane Quilt, but will blog that in a separate post later.
I have also decided on my material that I am going to use for the SIT name bag swap
I had a lot of trouble choosing these as I don’t have a lot of orange in my stash and nothing that is bright and cheerful like all the other badges I have seen around. I was just about to give up and make a trip to buy some more fabric when I found this one which I think will work well with what I have planned. That is my project for this weekend, what’s yours?
