Creating

Hey all! Still creating away (slowly, very slowly) over here in the beautiful weather that we have been getting. For the moment, creating is stuck in between all the back to school rushy type activity that September always holds for us. New clothes, cleats, shin pads, newspaper route, skating, new teachers, packing lunches etc etc. It feels strange to be tied down to all these schedules after 2 months of FREEDOM. But we always adjust and soon it will be smooth sailing and lovely Fall will arrive.

I have been humming and hawing over these...


And then I did this to them....


Then I hummed and hawed some more. And then I did this to them...

And all that colour made me stop humming and hawing. And then I found some superb sashing fabric from this Canadian Etsy shop (Canadian = save on shipping charges - yay me!!!) and I am sewing it all together as we speak (haha, now that would be a feat we would all like to accomplish...sewing and blogging at the same time - imagine the work we could get done...)

Update soon! Hope you are all in fabric heaven sewing your hearts out this week. Linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network.

  10. I feel the "humming and hawing"... I can totally relate. It certainly feels great to get beyond it and to know you've done good, doesn't it? You HAVE!

    The pics are just lovely!
