I’d hoped to be sewing today in my creative space.
There are many projects waiting to be finished – but the sewing planets just haven’t been in alignment in my part of the world… and unfortunately today isn’t any different. My little poppet isn’t well today. We had a lovely afternoon at the zoo yesterday but my poor little one was uncharacteristically clingy – then when we came home she needed to be encouraged to eat her dinner and then as her dada scooped her from the bath she emptied the contents of her stomach all over him.
So today I’ve plans to do some more hooking, using acrylics yarns that I’ve been stashing away in a yet-to-be-completed (aka unfinished) hessian bag. The plan is to make some goodies for the new toy room that is finally starting to take some shape after putting together lots of furniture last Thursday.
As I snuggle with my poor little sick poppet hooking away I will be considering potential creative excuses for what I think will be my first ever speeding ticket. Ooops – there was a big flash from the supernova at the side of the road as I drove past! I’m thinking the truth - that I didn’t see the approaching camera or my speedometer because I was whacking my sick daughter riding in the back with her nappy wallet in a desperate effort to keep her awake until we got home – would get me into further trouble. Mmmmm… might just need to stay mum on this one.
Speaking of my nappy wallet – here it is:
I used Karen’s wonderful tutorial to make it. The tutorial was so easy to follow and having a nappy wallet makes getting out the front door so much easier – a “must have” item for mothers of toddlers.
For more creative space make a slow and steady trip to Kirsty’s – and be sure to keep your eyes on the road.
