My Creative Space

A splendiferous pile of snippety scraps....


Some whirring away on Jan in the kind of haphazard way that makes my heart sing...


Making some yummy sandwiches by layering with some quilt batting and trusty old calico...


Trotting off to a free motion class at this little slice of heaven and whiling many an hour away making e's, vines and squiggles.....concentration tongue protruding no doubt!.....


Cutting rainbow loveliness into circles and squares....adding lolly hued bias binding....


Being seriously chuffed at my little collection of pot holders and coasters and marvelling at how
with the flick of a glittery wand scraps can be turned from a pumpkin into a coach....Bibbity-Bobbity-Boo!



Ogling all these delicious projects and pondering whether I really need to sleep every night.

I would be seriously chuffed too if I could create such a gorgeous collection! I want to try my hand at free motion quilting one day. Yours looks great!

Sleep. If only we didn't have to. We could get so much more done! Sleep is a weapon I rarely have in my arsinel. I'd never get anything done otherwise.

Cute potholders and coasters - I do love turning scraps into things - and I love looking at them and enjoying them around the house too!

I have pot holder envy! These look simply amazing.

What a gorgeous result! I loved the way you shared the process, and the photos too, of course.

Oh Steph! this is just the motivation i needed!! I'm off to scour my scrap box and get quilting....hmmm pot holders or coasters! Well, i've got that many scraps, my pile will be as high as yours. I love your little stash and wish you so much fun at your crafty night xx

I LOVE them. Sigh. Such sweet fabrics and you tidied them up so beautifully :)

Fiona said...

Wow!! Still not quite believing that you can go from that pile of scraps to those wonderful potholders!!

Sleep is highly underrated ... I obviously need more if I'm ever going to transform a pile of scarps (and I have a huge bag of them) into anything meaningful.
