my creative space

This week has progressed from yellow week to yellow & purple week. I realised two things at once. Thing 1: that I've pretty much run out of illustrated coinpurses & pencilcases, and need to replenish my stash before my markets. Thing 2: polka dot & stripey purses are the cutest! The purple ones are a purple & white polka dot. I'm eagerly awaiting my Spoonflower order which contains red polka dots. Yay!

As I'm sewing I chuck completed goodies in a wicker basket, which I then turn inside out at night time. Go system!

Also working on a frog card, and I've been cleaning - I have framed prints for sale when I do market stalls, and I like to use recycled frames from op shops (I get scared new frames are made of the Tarkine or some such). This joyful little framed tellietubbie is an op shop find - I think my mum actually found it (thanks mum). Nice.

Your purses are really lovely.

I'm totally with you about working in colour themes, and it's mostly because I'm too lazy to change my sewing threads over. Cause I flip between the straight stitch and the overlocker I can't be stuffed changing all those bobbins! I'm currently on blues and whites... but it can also lend itself to baby pinks as well for some reason.

(I had to delete the other comment as I realised I'd written LAZY SEAMSTRESS at the end - about myself - but it looked like I was yelling at you... which I wasn't... just yelling about myself.)

*whisks away to look at your foodie blog*

You are so talented! I adore your work. It's so nice to meet another illustrator. I'm following you now! Can't wait to see what you create next.

I'm rather partial to a polka dot or seven myself. In fact you've just prompted me to realise I have existed a whole 38 and a bit years without a polka dotted coin purse. Food for thought, that.
