My Creative Space

My creative space today is all about my niece's Christmas present. I've decided to challenge myself. I purchased onegirl's fleur playmat pattern a few weeks back and finally felt confident to pick some fabric. I'll match this stash with the collection of reds and pinks that I have in my current stash.

I'd love to be cutting it out tonight but for once I'm following the instructions and washing all the new fabric first - 'I really want this to work!' I'll post my progress as I go.

I got an email today from my sister in law asking for more shoes for Olivia too - I'm pretty excited she's asked for more as I wasn't entirely convinced the last batch was any good. An order for more has to be a good sign. Below is the last batch I made a couple of months ago.

Finally I promised the girls at Brown Owls last night that I'd post a photo of the Ruby Doll I made. Here she is with her softie family.
