What are you creating?

I'm creating a new herbaceous border in my garden. I'm crocheting a blanket in sock wool and I'm knitting a matinee jacket for the future king or queen of England. *Wink*. How about you?


I'm making a heck of a mess in the kitchen with my children - Rolo tartlets, chocolate swirls and Belgian biscuit cake (blow the healthy eating). I've been making hats and trying out the new skills I learned at my millinery course. I haven't started the bootees for the future monarch yet, though ...


Tsk. I feel so useless!


I would love to be creative in an artistic way but have no talents at all, including musically. The nearest I get is gardening. I spent all week planning to widen a border but had no time because of long hours working. Today it has rained all day so tomorrow I will be creative, even if I do it in the rain!


I'm trying to finish my latest quilt but I've had to stop because I can't see well enough in this light to thread the needle ... Oh no, I'm getting old.


I am creating ... a pile of marked exam papers *smug face*. I've got 43 left to mark out of 350. Inwardly I'm creating a list of all the housework that has been ignoredforgotten about while I've been marking. So I'm procrastinating with the papers, of course.


I just create housework. Mrs Bob is always moaning that I have left pens and books and notepaper everywhere.


What a creative lot we all are. I have just been to the garden centre and bought some beautiful plants for the garden refurb. Am just having a coffee break before I dig them in.
