my creative space

My creative space is back!  Hooray!


I am madly working on this piece of tapestry for my very best friend's birthday.  It will (hopefully and eventually) become a clutch purse courtesy of a fab pattern from Cath Kidston's book Stitch.  It is my first foray into the world of tapestry and I have to say that I have enjoyed it.  It's a great TV watching activity, which is an absolute must for me.  I always need to have something on the go which I can do whilst relaxing in front of the tele.  I really need to finish the tapestry part so I can sew up the purse and get it in the mail as close to Australia Day as possible (which is my friend's birthday).  Eeek!  I don't like my chances of getting it done in time for that but I have warned her that her present may be a bit late this year.

I can't wait to check out what everyone else has been up to over at Kootoyoo


  1. Gorgeous. cant wait to see it all stitched up.

  2. I love Cath Kidston designs, "Sew" is so inspiring! I admit I wasn't quite as enthralled by "Stitch," though perhaps that's because I've been cross stitching for many years.

  3. I can't wait to see it put together. It looks lovely already.

  4. what a gorgeous present. i love a good tv project

  5. My jaw is on the floor. Fabulous stitchery (and TV projects are always my favourite).

  6. Sooo lovely! Lucky friend! I see it lined with blue brushed velvet
