Three quick things (for the eldest)


Living in a rental with only these 'lovely' blinds at the windows,
I've eventually got around to making some bunting for Miss 10 to brighten them up a bit! (Miss 5's is here) *the old cassette tape fabric was a large unopened hanky from the op shop.

Each triangle is different, mainly vintage fabric.
(so hard to photograph when its rainy and dark)

Then I kept cutting triangles, very random ones though! 
And got the 5 inch needle out to make a circle cushion.
 (last time I made these was way back here!)
*warning - if you make one, they take ALOT of stuffing!

I also recovered a little rectangle cushion.
So the bunting and the cushions are actually for Christmas -
she'll have to wait till then! (I'll set them up in her room while shes opening her pressies!)

While taking these shots - I found that someone has been having a go
at some teen tiny crochet. (with one of my hooks!)
She is managing to follow a crochet books instructions, 
whilst also adding her own ideas to things.

It looks much more comfy with the bunting up,
can't wait till she see's it!

More creative spaces here.
