Did you wake up in the night to pouring rain and thunder? We did. Boy has there been alot of rain. My vegies will be so happy and the chooks will too, poking and scratching for snails and worms..fun!! But I won't be in the garden much today, more likely sitting above sewing a little, checking my lists, foofing around trying to get organised.
The rain has softened the day, and a week that has had it's tricky moments. Thank you lovely friends for all your supportive comments re 'The Cut'. It's all fine now and I'm also feeling alot better health wise. I really apppreciate your kind and funny comments, it made me feel so much better! it's amazing how many people had 'home haircut' stories. I heard a few about kids who cut other kids hair, at least that hasn't happened yet!!
Today it's about last minute jobs. With the market in two days I still have a few little things to finish such as getting bags and tags ready. I'm loving thiese cheesy wedding cake bags that cost 50c at the opshop.
With a bit of origami paper (also from the oppie!) they look much better and are perfect for hair clips and brooches. You can probably pick up similar bags at Spotlight and they can be covered with anything really, vintage book illustrations, your own drawings/images. A nice simple, cheap idea.
Do you like these blue overalls? They belong to a dear little fellow, who Lucy has called Archie, who will be appearing at the market on Saturday.
Along with a few of his sister friends.
And some birdies.
There are still a couple of skirts that need ric rac...and some bunny mouths to sew on. It's been a busy week here as I had school work to hand in & Mark has reports to do so I haven't had much time to get things ready. But it's all coming together now and I am so looking forward to this Saturday!! The word on the street is that this Daylesford Makers Market will be the best one yet with lots of lovely stalls and wonderful things to buy. Look out for the Lark stall which is always fantastic and lots of other clever locals such as Kate & some lovely Melbourne blow ins. Can't wait to see you, don't be shy, come and say hi to me, and Charlotte! Before I go a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to lovely Steph from Doily. Look for Steph on Saturday and give her a big happy birthday yourself!! For more creative spaces pop over here xo
