My creative space

I ran out of tags for my softies the other day.  Because I sell my craft, I priotitise paid work when sometimes I’m itching to make something else.  So needless to say I wasn’t too disappointed to run out of tags.  I made some cushions for the loungeroom

rearranged some pictures

made a cushion for the bedroom

Since finishing those, I’ve been working on these lovely embroideries.

Anyway my tags will no doubt arrive today and having had a break I will be glad to get back into softying.

In case any of you aren’t aware The Remnant Warehouse is having its sale at the moment.  I went yesterday and despite my children behaving atrociously, I bought some goodies.  I’m hoping to go back kidfree on Saturday as well.

In other news today is my 30th birthday.  I must say I don’t feel much like celebrating, I have been finding parenting especially hard lately, and Dan hasn’t been too well.  Anyhow I’m sure the day will pick up and perhaps all my nagging about an overlocker will pay off.

  1. Happy Birthday Rachel! It’s nice to have a break sometimes, remind us why we started crafting in the first place. Enjoy your day and hope to see you next week at the craft day!


  2. Happy birthday. Go & eat some cake I say

    Your cushion is very cheery so perhaps running out of tags was a good thing. By the way where do you buy your tags from, I’m always interested in where others get there tags from & how they find them.

    As for overlockers….mine is in the bad books at the moment…it was all the overlockers fault, I had nothing to do with it!

  3. Happy Birthday Rachel!! Being 30 is great, you’re going to love it!! Your house looks so beautiful and cheery, just what I needed to see on this dreary day!

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Happy birthday Rach. Hope those boys behave for you today. I always find the time leading up to birthdays can be kind of grumpy ~ don’t what it is.
    Lovely cushions ~ and I spy some familiar photos there 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday! Wonderful cushions and cross stitch and general sewing goodness happening over here… your work is super.
    ps. and thanks for the sweet comment the other day on the blog!
