My Creative Space 'what's in my front door way'

Greetings all,
Don't you love peeking into people's doorways??  Well if you were nosey & walked past my front door, this is what you'd find this week . . .
cushions for baby Chloe to be collected by daddy Tom . . .
Chloe's mum Corinne requested buttons on the back . . .
it wasn't until i bought this Brother Innovis 600 sewing machine that i was ever confident with my button holes (machine recommended by Corrie from Retro Mummy - she knows her stuff, we both got them for Mother's Day last year, thanks husbands!!) 
goodies returned from Cosmo Pregnancy magazine shoot . . .
was a busy week & everything got piled up . . .
with samples spilling out onto the floor . . .
Indeed a busy week . . . i picked up two new stores/ stockists for my wholesale label Edna&AliceMay, wrote P&C reports, drafted Winter Olympic assignment x 2 for twins, hosted 3 sleep overs, as well as sewing up a storm for upcoming markets.  Does your front door way look like a mini shop too??  FYI my studio is just in the front doorway to the left!!  Must sort it all . . . tomorrow.  Was fun playing My Creative Space this week kootoyoo!!  Love Posie

I have my front door locked so nobody can peek in and catch me with messy house, pity my family all just stroll in the back door regardless, the joys of living in the country!

mondo cherry said...

Those cushions are just lovely. Sounds like a very busy week at your place - assignments and sleep overs ... brave indeed! If you came in my front door today your would think a bomb had gone off here recently. The heavy rains in Brissy on Tuesday sent a flood through our lower level so there are toys and clothes drying everywhere! Not a pretty sight.

Kate said...

I just love those cushions so much, the buttons are a gorgeous touch! And yes I agree, a great machine definitely makes the buttonhole experience much easier.

Nikki Cardigan said...

My goodness Posie... I hope you are remembering to breathe! You have had a very busy week, but it all sounds exciting. I hope you have some relaxation planned for the weekend.

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on my blog today regarding re-entering the workplace! I so appreciate it and all your comments you have left. I usually respond to comments by e-mail, so that's why you haven't heard from me because my comments aren't being e-mailed to me for some reason! Anyway, thank you again!!!
