My creative space

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

Clockwise from left:

  • Dried hydrangea from the garden
  • Absolutely delicious, hand-dyed blue felt by Ewe and Me (do look at Trudi's other colours)
  • Glass beads in shades of blue

This week I have a plan for a table runner. You see, our beautiful redgum dining table is currently under a large piece of plastic. Its a little bit nanna really, but I make no apologies. I don't want Argy and Bargy touching the surface of that table until they are at least 28.

Do you think a hydrangea-inspired runner will divert attention from the fact that the rest of our napery is PVC?

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space (or to join in), head over here.

  1. trudi's felt is wonderful ... and your little selection for a table runner looks really intriguing ... can't wait to see what you make ... you're seriously the felt master (although your sister comes pretty close!)

  2. I can not speak highly enough of the plastic covered table!

    The blue looks gorgeous but those beads look like they would be chewed off in minutes if left on the table at my place!

  3. & then you'll end up with lovely marks from the bottom of their stubbies! The Date's family dining table has those...I love it.

  4. Your table sounds lovely, and worthy of plastic. I went for the pine, don't care if the kids muck it up cause one day I will sand it or paint it white kind of table...

    Love all the blues, and that is the second creative space in a row that mentions that felt. Am going to have to check it out :)

  5. Can't wait to see your runner.
    I am sure you could find lots of people out there that would adamantly argue that PVC is a great look!!!

  6. I love hydrangeas! They remind me of my nana's garden :) And a nana bit of plastic is well worth saving a table I think :) K

  15. What's wrong with PVC? Although (and this is somewhat unrelated) I was forced to have stern words with my father over the use of those PVC runners to protect the carpet doo-hickeys. Cripes!

    And those 'orderments' in your previous post are very cute - nice that they were yours as little tacker!
