My Creative Space

Well as you can see I have been busy.  My Creative Space has been all about taking photos for My Bearded Pigeon and editing them and loading them and business cards, post office trips etc etc all the stuff that takes as long as actually making the product!!! So I have done no actual sewing on a machine for ages and it's actually been nice to have a break from softies and fisherman pants and to do somethng completely different. I  have been doing some embroidery at night by the fire under a granny square blanket made by my Gran of course... it's almost finished.....

I have used a a few different shades of red so it looks a little more textured....I may even finish it tonight. It has been an exercise in patience and I have been working on it most nights for a couple of weeks now. I am ready to finish now ... ready to hang it on the wall.
Pop over to Kirstys for more Creative Spaces with a little more energy and pizazz than I am currently feeling....(insert big sigh here....the day started at 5am this morning)
 AND don't forget to enter my giveaway- if you are that way inclined...
 AND THANKYOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A BROOCH YESTERDAY, I AM THRILLED WITH THE RESPONSE!!!
