✴ my creative space

Sometimes, when in the making zone, it's so very easy to get so very carried away with delightful things.
There has been a little party in my creative space. To cheer up a bit of crochet. 
There has been dreamy soft velvet, tiny beads and sparkly diamante.
Golden thread, sequins and satin.
Gathering and ruching and fraying.
And although these beautiful things are so vivacious and fun in their own way. When they all got together, well, it was all just a bit too much. Each one vying for attention and adoration.
The bit of crochet felt ignored and unloved.
So we sent them packing and invited a humble scrap of ticking and a bit of ribbon and danced into the wee small hours....
Sometimes the simplest things just seem to work out better.
{Don't worry the other things have another party to go to}
