Running backwards through a hedge…

30 Jun

This last month has been incredibly busy, which is kind of ironic as I took  the month “off” Little Blossom Quilts duties to flex my creative muscles. So what have I been up to? Well let’s just say when I put up my hand to organise a Market Night for the talented mums at our kindy to show off their work, little did I know what exactly I was letting myself in for!

It has been a whirlwind 8 weeks or so since Amanda and I started the ball rolling on the Market and my-oh-my we have managed an enormous amount. With five kids between us, two businesses, and one part time job, it has been no small task. We have collected a really impressive line up of stallholders- so many goodies that I cannot wait to buy.

So while I feel like I am running backwards through a hedge at the moment, I have (amazingly) managed some creative time too. When I am making a custom order, there is a different kind of creative energy than when I put a whole lot of fabrics on a table and just… play. It must be like how it feels to write music I guess… playing around with the colours, shapes and patterns and watching something gel together. Oh it is lovely. Then to have someone else LOVE what you have made.. even better. Recently I sold a blanket I loved to someone who was sending it to a baby in Italy, isnt that gorgeous? Hope that little bella bambina loves her Little Blossom Quilts blanket.

Here is a little look at what I am making and loving at the moment.. all for the Mitcham Village Kindy Market.. – come along and support our kindy and enjoy wine, food and gorgeous shopping (oh and lets all leave our kids at home with the daddies and make it a girls night out!!)
