My Creative Space

My Creative Space this week has been knotty. Lots of knotty. Of the French kind. And the first time I have ever done anything like this. It is a little addictive and is keeping me up late at night.

My big girl has just started kinder. She will need a blanket for rest time on the long day she is at kinder. They have reduced hours the first few weeks, to ease them into kinder, so I still have some time to finish it off (thank goodness)

It feels good to be using my Grandma's embroidery thread for her Great Grand daughter too.

This is based on the Fairy Bread pram blanket from Pip Lincolne's gorgeous new book Sew La Tea Do. I have made it larger to cover my big girl (all 4 years old that she is)

Have a lovely day.



  1. How lucky she will be having her very own special blanket. It is looking beautiful :)

  2. Looking totally delicious! Can't wait to see the finished product. It truely is special when you can pass on beautiful things through the generations, isn't it?! Your Grandma would be pleased, I'm sure! :)

  3. I think the knots are a much nicer way of quilting than just tying. I must try to remember that little trick. Thanks for sharing. Cherrie

  4. wow - this looks beautiful Cat!x

  5. oooowww i love the idea of using your grandma's thread, that makes the blankie extra special :)

  6. too sweet :-)
    and gorgeous bright colours too - love it!!

  7. My goodness that is beautiful. Your daughter is a lucky girl. Nothing better than something homemade with love. Charmaine

  8. That's a great photo and it looks lovely. Something homemade is always such a comfort.

  9. I reckon it's a healthy obsession - it looks beautiful. It's only when you start french knotting an oversized dead fly that you have to begin to wonder.
