my creative space

I have been doing a whole lot of op shopping, to replace some borrowed furniture and lookit what I found! A big squishy-oh-so-comfy-couch! It doesn't really team with the theme of retro but for once I don't care...


So my newest creative space is 'couch' with this tangle of crochet scarf yarn...don't you hate it when you run out of yarn half way through? I am trying to combine this plain colour with this verigated one to stretch it further and get a scarf out of it...fingers crossed.

While opping' I also got a bunch of second hand craft books. While leafing through the mostly hilarious projects I stumbled across this illustration- an old story book graphic creates a new pattern...it looks so sweet, lovely idea don't you think?

I reckon comfort is the most important consideration in a couch & yours does look super comfy & nap inducing.

Oh yeah, I am all about the vintage craft books, there are some gems amongst the horrors lol, and you've definately found one there... even if it might raise some copyright concerns nowadays hehe.

Looks like a comfy couch - I am sure much crafting will be done on it.
