to market

Today I have been making more cushions from some great old tea towels, some from my aunts collection and some from the op shop.  I love the crocodile one, its for the NT and is in such great colours.  These are to fill up my table at the Borders bookstore market tomorrow night.  Yes, thats right, they are having four crafters sell their wares in the Carlton bookstore - 'Where Craft Meets 3041' Monday 6pm-9pm ish.  I feel a little in awe as the other people are CurlyPops, Finki and Anna Boyd-Dunlop - very talented crafty peeps!
I have also been lucky to get this lovely Lemonade Stand award from the creative Loopi for you.  Thank you x  So I am passing it on!

I just wanted to share with you some of the lovely packaging from a couple of the goodies I received before xmas.  I got this brilliant 'mais oui' hairclip from twirling betty but made as a brooch, and some personalised coasters beautifully wrapped in their own cloth bag from the princess and the monkey, both from madeit. My brother loved the coasters, one for each letter of his family. 

And here is a couple of pics from our Christmas Day - lunch in the garden in the sun and then some windy beach time!

A new year

Happy New Year everyone!  I had a lovely relaxing time over Christmas and New Years spending time with family.  Back to the day job today, which was a struggle. Good news is my vintage fabric blue scarf was included in this lovely treasury by Taylor's Eclectic.  Thank you! Lets hope it makes the front page.
