Work in progress - headbands

I have a big head. Yes. I admit it. Most headbands hurt me after a while, which is a shame because I love wearing headbands. Somehow, putting on a headband at home makes me feel more housewifey and groovy, all in one. What power a headband can have!! ;)

I've been testing some headbands to add to my next market stall. Some for adults and some for children. And some extra large ones for those adults who *cough* have a larger head... it's all those brains in there, right??

The extra large one is comfy on my head. Success! I haven't taken pictures of the adult ones, but here's my boys wearing one of the children's ones.

My Creative Space

This week, I've been working on some new things to sell at my next market stalls. I've been thinking of making make up rolls for make up brushes but instead made up some pencil rolls to see how they would turn out. I'm happy with the result so far :)

Next I will work on ones for make up brushes.

I also tested a baby cube this week. It looks really cute! I haven't finished hand sewing the last part shut yet as I was trying to decide if I should include a little bell inside. I think I will, so now to find some bells!

Riding along on my pushbike, honey

Yesterday, I became the owner of a lovely new pushbike! I love it. Let's not talk about how hard it was to actually find a store with it in stock... it doesn't matter anymore!

And of course, on the way home from the shop, it started to rain. But, that's ok because by the time it took my handy hubby to put it together, it was dark!

We all went for a ride today and I had one of my boys in the child seat on the back most of the time, which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

I'm really looking forward to riding my new bike in Spring and Summer. So glad for the warmer weather!

My Creative Space

Today I've been doing up my work space. I sew in a corner of the loungeroom and have a table, shelf and bit of a wall as my little space. It was quite a boring, ugly little space when I started, but I have been adding bits and pieces to it for a little while.

I've been wanting to cover and paint my table for ages and today was the day to start! I've got some green polka dot oilcloth that I bought to cover the table. I cut it out, popped it on the floor, flipped the table, stapled with the staple gun and ta-da!! All done!!!

It needs to be uncreased a bit, but this will happen with a bit of heat... I hope!!  I'm going to paint the legs white when the weather is a bit warmer.

The help! (loose!)

My little sewing spot. My hubby put that shelf up for me recently and it's made such a difference!
