My Creative Space

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

Loving the blue overalls - reminds me of clothes my Nana knitted for me when I was a child ... which is a compliment to you because I LOVE them & now my children play with them to dress their teddy bears. Should be a great seller.

Nice to see your busy with your sewing, and it is perfect weather for it. We woke up to pouring rain and thunder this morning but I think that is it for today as the sun has just raised its head to come and say hello. I really hope that I can make it to the market this weekend but I think Paul has to work (drats) so if not maybe next time. I am glad to hear your feeling much better, I feel a little yucky the past 2 days, tired and drained and sad, must be the hot weather!

All your things are looking just gorgeous ( I'm very taken with those overalls) I hope it's a wonderful day for you, you know I would really love to come up for that Market and to Daylesford to meet all the lovely blogging peeps there. Pity I can't drive and I've got a busy weekend...

Amanda said...

The tiny overalls are adorable..And what a great idea for the bags, creative!

We had a beautiful sunny day here hope you get some soon!!

Nikki Cardigan said...

Good to hear things have calmed down a bit around home. Maybe all that rain washed away the stress and tension. Things look like they are falling into place for the market. I hope it is a great day for sales and socialising!

Archie certainly does have a rather snappy pair of blue overalls. There certainly is a flurry of market activity of late, hope it all goes really well for you.

It was so lovely to lie in bed thismorning and just listen to the pouring rain on the rooftop.
See you on Saturday. I can't wait!

Those overalls ARE very cute, but the bunny's are just adorable. Wish I lived nearby so I could come and see your stall at the market.

Nice up-cycling on the bags Beck! I spotted some a while back but didn't get them because I couldn't think how to use them. Clever chook. Have a great afternoon & stay dry.

Gina said...

Love your bag idea Beck. I also love the fabrics you're using on your bunnies... cute little pop of Holly Hobby in there I see. Hmmm, think I'll have to make the trek to the Daylesford market at some point, just to meet you all.

...if they are not cutting other kids' hair ... they put chewing gum in it !!!!

Lovely post - those bags are gorgeous !!!

Tanya said...

ooh, I was a 'junior bridesmaid' in about 1980, and I think those cake bags must have been left over from that!!!

Lauren said...
