My Creative Space...

This week I decided to join the long list of those sharing their creative spaces.
As I have been on holidays from my paying job for the last week and a half, I have had a bit of time to spend in my creative space and a few things have been achieved.
Firstly, I have managed to make 17 of these bags for my "Make It Quick" craft camp project kits

Secondly, I have been continuing to work on the Ripple Blanket.
The sad thing about this is that a day and a half ago this was twice the size, but whenever I looked at it I knew that something wasn't quite right. But silly me kept adding more rows anyway. Then I knew that I just had to rip it back because I hated two of the colours that I had put in there, they just kept jumping out at me. So 28 rows had to be ripped back and hopefully now I will be happy with it and be able to continue on.

Thirdly, I am making up some more "Peg Aprons".
The pink and green number on the top is actually for me, because my current peg apron has a big hole in the back from being well used. The rest will be for sale at the Craft stall at my Craft group in a couple of weeks time.

To be inspired by more creative spaces, hop over to here.

Until next time

Love your ripple blanket, it's delicious! I think you did the right thing pulling the rows out as the two colours would have bothered you forever. It won't be long before you make up those extra rows. All lovely projects at your place xo

Yep I agree, totally did the right thing. It is beautiful!

I sooo need to make myself an apron, I am always amazed that I don't have one...Yours are very cute.

Did you say 28 rows???? AAHHHHHHHHH!!!! I felt bad when I had to pull out 9 on the cardigan I'm crocheting but that is some serious pulling out. But you're right, if you don't do it then and there it'll jump out at you forever. Love the peg aprons too.

goodness me, your creative space is very full. Looks like some great projects.

I find it so hard to go back and fix things after a lot of hard work but I'm sure it would have always bothered you.
