My Creative Space


There is so much to see in My Creative Space today that I couldn't possibly fit it all in!

I'm working on a small mountain of projects right now, in an attempt to make everything I need to for my June markets - because of course, I'm going away to Kununurra on secondment in around three weeks time, and I'll be away for six weeks, and I have a market in the first week of June straight after I get back. Then five markets following in quick succession  in the weeks following.

Usually I spend May creating lots of stock and having a "market month off" .... but this year I haven't got that luxury. So I'm wondering: is it possible to spend every moment not working, eating or sleeping, at the sewing machine? And more than is it possible - is it sane??

I have some pretty high goals right now. I need ten pencilrolls (at least), an assortment of cushions, around 15 more Hoots, some new Catticuses, a dozen doorstops and matching snakes, a dozen new fabric necklaces, and a collection of other small bits and pieces.

PLUS I have two baby quilts on order - one is needed by Tuesday, and the other is due for a baby that's arriving in May, so I have to get it ready before Anzac Day as I fly out shortly after.

Whew - that's a lot of work. But I'm up to it! Perhaps I should have put a photo of the spinning Tasmanian Devil here in this post instead, because that's kind of how I imagine I'm going to feel for the next little while .....

Possible? Yes. Sane? Heck, no. But I reckon you'll do it. Good luck!!!

Love the start of the projects in the photo. Great prints you are using.

Don't add more to this list! You do have a lot! I wish you all the luck in the world. You can do it!.

Jennie said...

You can do it! Or, you're experienced enough and reasonable enough to revise your market stock list as you go along. And you'll be sooo satisfied as you cross each thing off your list. Good luck!

You sound pretty organised and motivated, I'm sure you will get it all done. Don't forget to look after yourself though! Have you done the Carlton market before? I wonder what it is like. Good luck with the next few weeks xo

Hey, love your new banner, and your optimism - I have no doubt that you will be able to get through all that work - after all, who really needs to sleep???

Ciao!
