my creative space: kitchen table

This is how my kitchen table looked at the weekend. Clean, full of cookies & tea... how cute is that little bird & nest? My mum gave it to me for easter!

This is how my kitchen table looks now... work in progress! I haven't worked on new fabric designs for a little while, sometimes it takes weeks or even months for ideas to incubate in my brain. If I start them before I'm ready I just end up getting frustrated and annoyed. But finally all the ideas are coming together! So maybe soon there will be some new coinpurses & pencilcases! The sketch-book contains a sneak peek at what might eventuate - better get my fingers drawing.

And thank you so much to ricebabies for blogging about a lovely package she received in the mail, which included some of my goodies!!

I know what you mean about designing - you just can't force it! Have fun!

It's always really interesting to see how a design begins right back at the start of the thought process. Good luck with it!

Selina said...

Looks like fun. And much (MUCH) neater than my table.:)

oh, i love the little sketches scattered about, lovely. And the first piccy is lovely too, if my table ever looked that clear and lovely I think I would take a photograph just to prove it to my friends and family ;o)

I love seeing the sketch books as much as the creations! I have to admit I rarely, sketch it is all in my head and then I just make!
