flea market find....well not really...

hello my beautiful new lockers....
I was given this set of lockers by a friend.
I spotted them in their backyard a while back,
not being backwards in coming forwards, I mentioned just incase they ever felt the need to dispose of them, I knew of a grateful new home!!
and well, got the phone call last week.
come and get the lockers, they are all yours
well you can imaging my excitement, and my husbands lack of!!
as this friend is a plumber, all the handles on each locker are old tap handles.
too cool for words.
one day I may bring her back to all her former glory with a sandblast and splash of paint.
but for now, I love the rust.
they will be great for storing the kids bike helmets and other bits and pieces in!

Handmade christmas challenge...

christmas gift #1 for my 1 year old niece.
not handmade by me, very similar style to me though,
this is however handmade by Brusslesprouts

I couldn't go past that material,
I'd really fancy my own skirt or top in that fabric!!

my place and yours...

well here is my creative space!

this week, I may actually be able to get this uploaded in time for the actual creative space game.

hmmm, does anyone else struggle to find the time to keep up with all the computer blogging, facebook, co-ops, the list goes on.

I have been so busy of late, I have hardly even been on the computer. I know, quite a shock, as I tend to be that person who will sit at the computer and google aimlessly blog surfing, but never finding the right thing to put on mine.

anywho, this fabric arrived today, so instantly I whipped out this lotus fabric and had to make this skirt.

I have been busy preparing for the sugar and spice children's market in woodend

on this weekend

be sure to check out their blog, and if your in the area, pop on in, its indoors and warm and toasty!!

I was going to keep this fabric bundle for summer, but couldnt resist making up just this one simple skirt with it.

hats off to you!!

a little bit of a woollen fabric addiction.
at least the fabric is not sitting in my cupboard.
no, it's actually covering my dining table.
oh, and the floor around the table, with another pile in my workroom, falling onto the floor also.
yep. my name is Katie, and I am a fabric addict.
so what could be as cool as this weather we are having?
well, I'd reckon these hats are pretty awesome or 'totally sick' as my 4 year old says
these hats below looked way cooler when the photo was the right way, but I guess a little
wacky like me, it's uploaded sideways. hmmm,
stick to the machine not the computer perhaps.
this isn't my creative space, since you can't actually see anything other than the mess,
but it has surfaced out of my creative space.
hope you like...
