My creative space

I have been trying to see my whole life as my creative arena...
So I cooked pancakes for breakfast...
I am in the process of sewing a witch's costume for Lucy...I couldn't find a pattern for a costume so I got this for a long nightdress. She promised that if she likes the witch's outfit she will allow me to make her a nightdress too. I am counting on her sweetness and generosity because even thoughI adore sewing I never officially learned how to do it properly. Wish I had. Maybe I still should.


Meanwhile, I am painting my little heart away. Now that I have a proper schedule, I can relax my mind after I leave the studio, and ask my red knight to guard the unfinished work ...
Wishing you many happy creative meetings at Kootoyoo...

I think red knight looks like a very efficient guardian of the unfinished work.

Oh I love it! I laughed out loud :) That's what I need to do - make pancakes! Your witch costume is coming along beautifully - that fabric is just super ace and I love that you have a knight guard your work. I have a paper castle on my desk... isn't that a funny symmetry for us? have a lovely day Annamaria :) K

I love the idea of a witch night dress. I'm sure she'll love it too.

The new schedule sounds like a great idea. Who would ever have thought you could survive without the phone and internet and all that stuff each morning...!!! Good for you.

I don't think there is a dress code for witches so I'm sure it will OK if your costume is not pattern-perfect.

pancakes sound yum ...
