purses galore

I have been in an uploading frenzy. These are all the purses I made for the recent market and I had to get them online. So all afternoon has been stuck here at the computer adding photos and text. But phew, its all done! Now for the softies . . perhaps they'll wait till next week.

Other recent news is that I am now an Aunty times 5! Yep, my little brother and his wife had their first bub, gorgeous little Chloe. Yay! This is a pic of getting all their flowers to the car using the hospital crib.

button bags

Another week has flown by, and i have been lucky to have my two remaining handmade bags sell through madeit in the last two weeks, so thank you lovely buyers! This material is all salvaged fabric, mainly upholstery remnants and samples, so they are definitely one-offs. I hope you enjoy them!

well I had my first ever market stall on saturday at the Maribyrnong Makers Market held in Seddon, sharing with my good friend Tracey who makes amazing origami cards. It bucketed rain with thunder and lightning, we were very lucky to be in the church hall. Still there were not very many people even when the rain stopped, and I only sold a couple of items. However for our first market experience we still had a good time, and Tracey sold quite a few cards which was great. It was lovely to meet other stall holders such as Lauren Williams, i had to buy a stunning brooch before the rain started, and it was good to give the market a go. Now I know for next time!

I have found a lovely email this evening that I have had a loop de loop bird included in an etsy treasury here. Yay! Always exciting.

to market

wow, two weeks have flown by! I have been very busy with sewing up a storm, well trying to while working full time in up bendigo, to get ready for the Maribyrnong Makers Market next Saturday in Seddon. My first market. I am sharing a stall with my lovely friend Tracey who makes gorgeous cards with Japanese, Australian and Nepalese paper. Did you know there was only one wrapping paper manufacturer left in Australia? times have changed. I am looking forward to saturday although its all a bit scary! drop by and say hello if you are in the area. Now back to the old husqvarna!
