my creative space - making, packaging

packaging
overlocking

Not so creative over here, but I do like the meditation of packaging up Flower Press wares. Sewing on labels, folding the towels, printing bands and putting the whole thing in a cellophane bag. And they look so nice together. A pity I always seem to be behind so the nice folded ones fly off to their new owners and I have to start again!
And some overlocking for those who were wondering how I was going with the new machine. A moment of worry when my rethreading didn't work, but I found the tricky thread hole that was missing and as you can see there's been no looking back. I love it!

Lots more interesting things, as usual, at lovely Kirsty's.

  4. A real little production line you have going here. You sound like you are having good fun in the busyness of it all.

  6. I find the packaging side of things soothing too. In my case it involves drawing little birds on tiny round boxes and popping some tissue paper inside as a nest for the jewels I've been making. It's repetitive and satisfying.

    I joined in with My Creative Space today (and started a whole new blog too - how scary!)

  7. I agree - there is something so satisfying in packaging what you have created. Well done on the overlocking! How's the crocheting going?
