My creative space....

I have decided to join in with Melissa at One Crafty Mumma and do a Ripple-along!  Now I could have easily used up some of the stash in my cupboard but it was all so bright and lary and made up of bits of this and bits of that.  And while I would have much preferred to be able to wander into a lovely wooly shop like The Stash Cupboard, Hobart was just too far away (Sorry Penni!), so I went with the old faithful and had an emergency dash to Spotlight.
I saw this pin on pinterest that inspired my colour choice as well as my decision to go with fat ripples.
 My colour choices - trying to keep it simple.

Now I just have to settle on which ripply pattern to follow:

The Royal Sisters...
Attic 24...
Meet Me at Mikes...
And, hark!  What else did I spy at Spotlight?! 

Timber Babushka cross stitch!  Well of course I needed two!

This is where I am up to with my scrappy quilt along thingy.  Just two more blocks and I think I am done.  Then of course I have to work out what to do next!!!  This is not the final placement of each square - I just needed to lay it all out to see what colours I need to go with for may last two pieces.  I'm thinking a greeny block and maybe a purple one too.


  1. Oooh love the colour choices! I haven't touched my ripple since bub arrived, perhaps this could inspire me..x

  2. gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! I love the inspiration ripple print! I plan to sit with my Simply Crochet and Downton Abbey DVD tonight and be inspired!!! Oh, and your oogling of husband perfectly allowed (he loves the flattery!) Wishing you lovely days xx
