building blocks

I decided to take a different tack with the work today. Seeing as I have a bad case of 'creative constipation' at the moment I thought some prep time was the way to go. I bought a new mannequin last week to replace the one I've had for twenty-cough-cough-plus years and have spent today making new pattern blocks to go with her. This lead to the creative juices starting to flow..... or so I thought.... a couple of stupid rushed decisions later I began to think I had managed to make a great idea into a sow's ear. Now I need to see whether I can turn it into a silk purse....
This weekend is really crunch time to get my head around what I am going to do for the Young Blood Design Market. Focus, focus, focus...... head down..... sometimes I wish I could give my head a shake and everything would just fall into place.


  1. Hmmm...too many things to do, too little time. I've been thinking of making stuff to sell too. Used to do markets for a living, 5 days a week... do I follow this path or do I just make for me and mine...?
    Good luck with your busy-ness Pen Pen!
