My Creative Space

Today I have been busy preparing my Home School Group lesson for tomorrow. They are having an Australiana theme this term, and I will be making Australian Scrapbooks with the 5-7 year olds.

As far as my sewing room goes - I am in the process of packing everything up, as I will have little time now to make anything. So the lids have been closed on the tubs and they have been stacked in the corner.

I did keep out one piece of fabric however. I would like to make the passport protector from A Spoonful of Sugar if I get the chance.
I have been nursing a sore arm, and slowly working my way around the house cleaning and tidying. I created this little display of some of my raggedies

Also wondering if anyone has any ideas on what I can take on the plane to do, especially crafty things.

Visit here to get your fill of creative spaces


  1. Hmmm... craft and planes don't go together anymore. There's no knitting, because of the needles. There's no embroidery, because of the needles. Hey- I see a theme here!

    When I fly, I do a lot of my "thinking craft"- coming up with ideas, designs, patterns etc. You might also be allowed to take jewellery/beading stuff, but you'd have to check. Sorry I can't be more help!

  2. Love the raggedies . I don't fly much but you may be able to sketch. I suppose you can take a pencil then again maybe not !

  3. Mr Busybee says to ask the airline what you can take with you.

    There is a nifty gadget on sale now that you can buy for cutting threads (Like a modern letter opener we think.) Purchase at craft shops. Ms Busybee. Hope this helps.

  4. You could go old-school and do some finger-knitting!

  5. Sadly I don't think that there is much crafty that can be done without scissors or a needle. Hope you figure something out...podcasts?

  6. I think you might be able to sneak in a plastic crochet hook or some knitting needles. Whether you'll be able to use them without getting them confiscated is another matter entirely !

  7. I hope you find something to craft on the plane.

  8. 6 months ago I flew from Hawaii to the USA mainland and took my beading to work on the plane. Had 3 beading needles (#11 sharps) threaded - someone had blogged that threaded needles and knitting needles inside a working project were probably less likely to be confiscated. I had no problem. I used a thread cutter instead of scissors - you can also use the cutter on the top of a box of dental floss.

    Happy Travels!
