My creative space

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

From left:

  • Innocent bystander

  • Machine embroidery thread

What craft do we call this? Macrame? Tatting? Embroidery? How about a-little-something-I-whipped-up-when-my-mum-and-dad-were-sick-for-5-days?

Bargy is very proud of his Gutterman Sulky embellished Intel Man. And since this craft project kept him quiet (without involving matches, knives or the cat) I chose to ignore the fact that metres of my beautiful new thread were being unwound.

Thank you for all your kind well wishes. Its good to be back on deck. There may even be a little craft again soon. Just after I have untangled a bit of thread ...

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. glad u r feeling better Liesl

  2. oops :p but yep at least it kept him quiet :)

  3. I love it! My little guy once used an entire ball of wool to "knit" up the kitchen.

  4. Fine art installation? If he keeps this up he could definately get a Bachelor of Fine art, Visual Art.

    (Or as we who have them call them, a Bachelor of Playdough...)


  5. Glad you're back, was getting worried! Now for a weekend of R & R- not a problem, sorted! Was it swiney or normal flu? PS Word verification dicitc. Why don't they just say 'dickitch' and be done with it?

  6. We should never, ever let our little guys loose in the same room together!

  7. Your children are so creative... I guess you can't fight genetics!

  8. oh my!! what can I say???:O glad you are feeling a bit better
