This week’s creative spaces are all about getting ready for the Christmas market frenzy. Well, we’re hoping it’ll be a frenzy. A polite frenxy in which everyone pays for their goods and no one gets ripped to pieces or trampled. Obviously.

First up, since it’s Thursday The Bothered Owl High Command were making stuff at Oscar’s this morning. We’re trying hard to kick start some kind of crafting group on a Thursday morning. So far, it’s just the two of us (we can make it if we try. HAH!) But we live in hope.

So our first creative space is from Oscar’s. Alex designed these cute felt cubes a few months ago. We’ve both been working away at them, appliqueing the shapes onto them and now Alex is slowly but surely stitching the pieces together to make these gorgeous brightly coloured blocks. She’s working on a design for a flower rattle as well.

Our second creative space is the bench in my back garden, covered in lovely warm snuggly squishy blankets. I’ve done half a dozen of them so far.

    Yikes! Christmas already!? Looks like you are getting well ahead of the game, well done.

    • We’re a bit over-excited about the possibility of Christmas markets! Plus it takes us ages to get anything done, thanks to our tiny assistants and their ‘helping’ hands.

    You’ve got heaps on the go! I love the blocks.

    • We are slaves to the thread!
      The blocks are Alex’s idea, we’ve been working on them for ages and they just keep getting pushed back as I get distracted by other things. I’m glad you like them :->
