My Creative Space

Ahh, the top of the ironing board - THE place for creativity. Space is at a premium in our two-bedroom flat, especially with a toddler, his many train-related accoutrements, and a rolling baby underfoot. The ironing board has been erected in our loungeroom most of the week, keeping things in my view and out of their reach. A simply-pieced chocolate linen and spot/stripe quilt top, waiting patiently for backing, binding, and quilting before heading off to baby Abi.

And on the windowsill... a good-enough-to-eat bowl of felt rocks in various shades of red that I picked out for myself from a felt shop at the Stitches and Craft Show. I'm planning thread them together (alone or with something else?) to make myself a nice chunky necklace for winter. Don't know how, but I figure it can't be that hard...

  1. They will look great as a necklace.

    I use my ironing board as a cutting table, I think they make the perfect crafting benches :)

  2. I'm really loving red at the moment. So I'm liking the post too! I think those pebbles are fantastic. Clever, clever, clever.

  3. I love those felt rocks!
    Nice to meet you.

  4. Those felt rocks are going to look great as a neclace! What a great idea!
