Big and Little

Well I haven't been around these parts much lately... I do have an excuse (boring though it be). You see, we had visitors coming, and a house inspection while they were here, so I have been scrub, scrub, scrubbing, trying to make this house of ours gleam... well, just a little bit anyway.

And now I am late for Our Creative Spaces Thursday, GASP! And I DO have a REAL reason for not joining in on time. Yes. I do.
You see, this is part of how I spent my Wednesday leading up to it...

A whole lotta pain (I would rather have been in labour - seriously!), a trip in an ambulance with my "Happy Whistle" and a 5 hour stay in Emergency. So you'll forgive me for being a little bit late won't you? Things are Ok for now though, and I am thankful.

Anyway, to the good stuff - what have I been up to in my creative space you say?

Gumboots, big and little. I altered the pattern for the smaller ones to fit my youngest nieces foot (she has quite long and lean feet), and then had to totally re-work the original pattern to make the larger size, which was a commissioned job by a lovely blogger who saw the first pair I ever made and had faith in me to be able to pull off creating something sweet for her little girl. Phew. It was a little stressful, and I pulled it apart several times to try and get the decreases to sit right - so I hope they fit little Miss B OK.
So there you have it. That's all I have been up to.

P.S. Don't forget that sign ups for the Sunshine in the Mail Swap close on Sunday! :)

Need more creative juice?
