My Creative Space-What Logo?

This week I have been ridiculously busy.
Too much working and not nearly enough sewing.
You know those times when you cant think 'where do I start' because you've already go so many things/projects on the go you can't really remember where to pick up again?

This is one of those times.

My head space is simply bursting with the 'to be done' list.

There is the Christmas things, fixing/mending things, just because I want to things, the knitting things (which sadly I have not yet even completed one 'bowl) and of course the practice 'something that I could possibly one day wear thing'.

Not forgetting the 'working away from home thing' that is really hindering my chance of actually achieving completion of any of these 'things'.

I have however, had time for a bit of this...

I won't rant again, I promise, but I thought I'd show you all the result of the question I posed some time ago.
A pre-emptive apology for the dodgy photography here..


And after going through another bag of 'hand me downs' (oh thank you ever re-cycling circle of clothing ) I found some clothes that would fit my small girl but, they needed a bit of a change...


Ta da....

And finally, whilst working away from home has it's down side, I still get to leave the lounge room looking like this

for me to return to and attempt to pick up where I left off.

This is my new (all be it temporary away from home creative space, filled with the makings of Christmas gifts - which by the completion of the huge Christmas creations task I have set my self - will all be made from thrifted table cloths and other thrifted linens....it's a deceptively 'organised yet chaotic' workspace in progress.

Head over to Kirsty's to see who else has 'things' to show and tell this week.

Cheers.

Good luck with all of the lists - I try to write all of mine down, but end up with a sore hand! :)

The clothing re-do looks grand! What a busy creative space. I love that purple fabric!

I like what you did to cover up the brand names, don't they look great?! Your creative space floor reminds me that I should be cleaning up the housse so I can focus on crafting tomorrow! There is alway so much to do, isn't there> Now, where is my list... xo

Whoo! Looks like a busy space!

You did a nice job recreating the hand-me-downs, so much cuter that way.

I'm still in denial about Christmas things, which means there's little chance I'll finish anything.

Good luck to you!

Love love love those refashioned t.shirts Pete. Nice work. And all the other stuff looks like it's coming along nicely. It might seem like a huge task but I have no doubts you'll get it done. And you may even be smiling at the end of it all!!

Gosh, what a busy (and creative) space and life you have on your plate right now. Great to see the logo-less clothing come through looking better than they did to start with - great job!

Caroline said...
