my creative space...


This week I have a few things going on. I haven't started the lounge pants from last week yet. I got some great new (to me) chenille that I have wanted forever, and got distracted.

That's the brown blob there, almost a bunny, made from the most gorgeous chocolate peacock chenille. And I picked up this great book from the library the other day and Miss 12 wanted to get in on the creative space action by turning a stray sock into some sort of creature. I like its little pink face.

This is the chocolate peacock chenille, for those who have never seen one. I love it to bits. I can now die a happy woman.


Thanks Kirsty for hosting.
