My Creative Space

Just a note to remember to hop down to my giveaway!

This week has been more about milestones and reflections than crafting. My oldest daughter is onto kindergarten in the fall and it's made me realize how short this time is I have with them.I picked up these great little prose booklets from the early 1900's filled with great little quotes and sayings. Perfect for moments of quiet reflection. Plus I am in love with the craftsmen style covers.I have had a pattern in the works this week, mostly in my head, but I've started writing it down, playing with fabric and getting the kinks worked out. Hopefully I'll have more to show soon. Thanks for all who gave support on the undies, I'm hoping to have a completed pair to show next week!
Please go over and see more great creative spaces at Kootoyoo.

Yes...the kinks. They cause me no end of grief.

Those little books look very sweet. Good luck with the kinks - they have brought me unstuck more than once.

Milestones eh? Exciting but sad all at once. Quite a contradiction isn't it?
