My creative space

My creative space has been somewhat overrun by other priorities in recent times. Most of my available crafting time over the last few weeks has been taken up with sleeping or thinking about sleeping. So I’m very pleased that my energy levels have started moving in the right direction, just in time to fulfill my pincushion swap commitments! It’s the perfect project to help me get back on the bandwagon: not too big, I get to crochet (which is about the only crafting medium that I ever seem to finish in a timely fashion!), and I get to play with some extra special yarn.

I’m hoping my swap partner will like it - it’s full of subtle yet striking colour variation that will hopefully result in a rather special pincushion if I get what’s in my head out into reality!


Thanks Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space and getting bloggers like me back in the game...!


P.S. Giveaway update: my giveaway closed too long ago to remember exactly when, but it's yet to be drawn and the prize is yet to be finished (ahem). So, I'll officially reopen it for a week, and draw it NEXT Thursday. Apologies to anyone who's been hanging out waiting to see if they'd won a prize....

The yarn looks very beautiful, love the colors! Hope you can feel more energised soon, nothing worse than feeling exhausted. I totally forgot about the giveaway too, lol!

That looks like some gorgeoues yar you're playing with there. As a fellow crochetaholic, I'm really looking forward to seeing the end result. X

Love the colours - I can't crochet for nuts so am envious ;) Hope you have a Happy Easter :)

Real life has been dictating the craft around here too - thank goodliness the crochet/knit thing is so portable you can get in a swift bit of therapy at traffic lights and whatnot (with the kids on traffic light duty bit of course). (yep, I'm that desperate).
