My Creative Space

I have lots of projects on the go at the moment, probably too many. I think I am the kind of person who prefers to finish one or two projects at a time. But none the less, I am enjoying all the creativity. 

I bought a little bracelet kit, I was hoping Holly would be able to make it. But, it is a little too complicated for a three year old so I have been making it for her. Surprise, surprise, she picked the colours pink and red- such a little girl! 

Finishing off a gift for a new baby. I love the cute little tail on this elephant. 

A couple of merino tops for my girls. I had intended on them being dresses but they really are too short. I am still undecided as to if I should cut them shorter into tops or add a contrast band onto the bottom and make them dresses. 

And as always, I have a project on the needles.

Light Play

We have discovered a new 'hit' in our house- the light box. Both my girls can spend hours absorbed in creativity on this little box. I bought it a few weeks back, getting a great deal on a local online auction, after being inspired by a lovely blog called Play at Home Mom. Since then, we have come up with all kinds of creative variations, from coloring and tracing to playing with shells and buttons on it.

Holly in particular is a big fan of putting the buttons on it. She sits for long periods arranging the buttons in to patterns and shapes. The other thing she enjoys doing with it is pretending it is a hot stove and cooking on it.

I love watching how their little minds work, how they are able to create this whole world with just a few simple objects. Who would have thought my eclectic button collection could bring hours of joy?

It is getting very chilly here now as winter truly kicks into gear. So I have knitted the little one, this wool jersey to help keep her snug. It is a quick little knit with a cute tab neckline, made using this touch yarns pattern. I made a slight modification to the pattern adding extra length to the selves as I wanted them to have fold over cuffs. Really happy with the results, thinking she needs a red hat to go with her new red jersey now.

I started this spring butterfly a wee while ago for Holly, and I am pleased to say I finally finished it for her today. It is a unique design and perfect for a little girl, so sweet and feminine. Holly is over the moon to see it finished, she wanted to put it on straight away. Makes it so rewarding to make things when they are so well received!
