I've always loved the feeling of snuggling up in a confined comfy space. A cubby house full of cushions or a tent filled with mattresses and bean bags.
My kids seem to like that same comfy 'womb-like' feeling. So this summer, my crafty goals have been to create a fun and snuggly place for each of them in their bedrooms.
For Ella, I designed a "bed tent" that gives her that snuggly feeling but doesn't diminish the sense of light and space in her rather small room.
So I used some pretty fabrics from the Dream On range, recycled the bunting from her room and added some sheer netting to create the tent surrounds.
So far, she loves it so much, it has already fallen down and I need to come up with a better way of securing it to the ceiling. I have a plan but just need to get to the hardware store to buy supplies.
Jake's space is still a WIP so I'll show you that when it's finished.
And now for that Patch Andi news:
My husband (together with me) has made some decisions about his working life this year that mean I will have to ramp up my own earning somewhat. This probably means reducing my crafting and going back to my other career which pays better and still offers significant flexibility.
Nothing to worry about. We're OK. Just changing things up a bit this year which is good.
So, I'm still happy to accept quilt commissions but won't be actively seeking them out. I'll still be blogging and crafting, but perhaps a little less regularly.
I am hoping to do some crafty teaching this year to keep my creating mojo humming along. Stay tuned for more details.
