#CreativeKickstart is a hashtag to share what we've been making and being inspired by each month, created by my merfriend Cuttlefishlove. I kept up with it for a few months last year but then lost track. This year I want to post a photo for each month. I think it will be really interesting to look back at the end of the year and see my creative journey!

So first up is probably the most unusual fabric of the bunch, and that's saying something because they're all rather...eccentric. This fabric has all sorts-pumpkins, squash, fungi, acorns, pine cones, and for some reason holly. I'm not really sure which season this is meant to be for, whether it is for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Yule/Christmas or all of the above. Whatever, I absolutely love it, and there is a lot of it. It's a really soft cotton fabric, probably a quilting fabric. I'm looking forward to making something cute to wear with my pumpkin handbag I thrifted a while back.

On day 30 I drew a few rough sketches of things I wanted to make. I really need to spend more time on planning and designing my projects.

After years of avoiding the place for the sake of my savings and my storage space, I ventured to Fabric Land. One of my purchases was this incredible purple/blue shimmer fabric, which is also stretchy. It changes colour with the light, looking deep purple, royal blue and bright turquoise at different moments. This will almost certainly be made into something mermaid-y.
