my random creative space

This is an all over the place post about an all the place week...
I shall try and lure you all in with some vintage buckle imagery-ooh baby...

And now to reveal the rest...
I was told, by my youngest and his visiting friend 'hey mum we are going to look at my books' -reading together, how lovely, I thought...

I should have been skeptical of anyone wearing a hat like this, huh?

He does have quite the creative streak...before one of his cardboard box houses got tossed I stopped to photograph this genie he decorated it with...cute...I might just appropriate it for some embroidery.

This is the view my kids have had of me the last couple days while they are both at home with colds.
I am unsuccessfully trying to force them to rest, hands on hips, trying not to laugh. Also note wool and hook, slipping in a few stitches as I cook dinner.

Where ever I can I am stealing time to build up stock for 3 markets ahead. I have my fingers crossed it will be bitterly cold at each event and that this pile will be snapped up and wrapped around chilly necks...

Thanks for visiting,
for more creative spaces (that are a hell of a lot more stimulating than mine) head to...

Great to see I am not alone in my madness Kate. Carrying your crochet around in your pocket so you can work on it whilst cooking dinner is pure genius! And I have major buckle envy!

Hope the kidlets colds go soon. Love the texta hat and the view from here. B is going through a raspberry blowing phase and it's impossible not to laugh so I know how you feel x
