After a brief lacuna (ahh, English graduate that I am, can’t resist a nice big word) we’re back with this week’s Creative Space.
The last two weeks have been moderately insane. First there was all the crazy prep-work for our first ever market at Misty Moon. Unfortunately, although I took a tonne of pictures, I just haven’t had time to post them and the iron has cooled somewhat.
Then last week it was the flit to Australia and jetlag, relatives and midnight trips to the Kid’s Casualty Ward. And to round the week off, our second ever market at the Armidale Farmer’s Market.
But this week, this week I have time, energy and actual things to show you. So this week, my Creative Space is brought to you by hats.
I’m quite enjoying working with my Mum’s Bernina machine again. This machine and I go back a loooong way. It’s the machine I learned to sew on, back in the misty dawns of time somewhere. Well, when I was about 8 or 9 anyway.
It’s big and heavy and clunky and the button hole function doesn’t work any more. But this machine has been going for almost as long as I have and shows no sign of giving up the ghost yet. And its weight gives it a lovely solid feeling while you’re working with it.
In the above picture you can see a half completed bag and some lovely paisley butterfly fabric waiting to be hacked up and made into a swoopy curvy bag. It’s still in my head at the moment but it’s a design I’ve been planning for a while.
