My Lacey Grey Creative Space...

good morning!

this is bright and early for me to be here,
but i was filled with energy this morning
couldn't wait to get started.

so first thing i took some photos
of my newest little cushion
after seeking the room with the most light,
and that wasn't easy!

reminiscent of moroccan architectural detail

a fine lacey design
in soft grey...

discreetly buttoned up at the back...


more of
ty pennington's 'impressions'
in pure cotton decor weight fabric
are calling out to be made up...
these two are more in the latte/choc colour theme
but equally beautiful.

i'm joining in with kootoyoo's 'our creative spaces' today...

what's going on in your neck of the woods

this fine thursday?

i can smell spring coming
am getting a bit of an urge to do some
reorganising and
dare i say it
a little spring cleaning!

  1. Oohee Carol, I love, love, love them all!

    Your new header image is making me think I should be heading down to the beach but I have an incredibly messy office so will be spending time in here, washing and doing much needed paperwork.

    Your post was a lovely respite though - thank you!

    xx Felicity

  2. I do like the morrocan inspired design.
    Currently spring cleaning my daughters bedroom, which is a euphamism for getting rid of the trashy toys!

  3. Gosh what beautiful fabric and a lovely design :)

  4. Gorgeous cushion. Very elegant indeed!

    My day today will involve doing not much at all. I am listening to my body which is telling me to stop and have a day of rest.

    Have a good one!

  20. Seriously, how do you do it? Every time I pop across you've come up with a gorgeous new creation! Loving the greys, they'd go perfectly in our living room. And is that a soft velvet throw I spy in the back? Gorgeous!

  21. Beautiful cushion and fabrics. I have added a bit of grey to my stash, but have not sewn with it yet - lots of plans though .... one day :)

  22. Another nice cushion. I love the chocolate latte colours of your 'soon to be' cushion!

  23. Hi Carol! :)
