Sydney update

I'm finally back in the real world and slowly ploughing through emails and sorting out children, fabric, dinners etc. Last week, the Stitches and Craft Show in Sydney was fantastic! There was so much colour, creativity and inspiration. Here are some pics, I wish I could show more:

more than two little banshees (one smaller than the other two!)

very cute girlies at the red thread

fabulous display of hats and bags by nikki

rolls of winterwood felt
my neighbour over the fence made it

kristen's gorgeous fabrics
cheeky kids with crayons
just a few of the gorgeous fat quarters by the ink and spindle girls
lovely warm body parts scarves
some of the lovely bettina's fabric selection

and a little view of pippijoe!

So glad to be back, albeit in a mess, but so so happy I went!

Hello from Sydney!

I'm about to head off to day 3 at the Stitches and Craft show, it's a beautiful sunny day and my stall has an incredible view over the racecourse to the city. I've been so busy over the last few days meeting so many people, crafters and bloggers. Thanks for saying hi, I love meeting people face to face after making acquaintance online.

The incubator section of the show (on level 4) is full to the brim of independent designers and it's been fabulous for me to spend time amongst them all. If you're in Sydney, do come in and say hello, there are so many interesting people and goodies around. I've taken a few pics and will upload them when I'm back in Melbourne next week.

Have a great day!

oodles of oddments

I hitched a ride to the freight depot today with justine and we managed to offload all our gear to be shipped to Sydney for the Stitches and Craft show! I'm so excited! I've been cleaning up the debris and have put together oodles of oddments packs which I'll take up as well. Ok, maybe not oodles, 10, but a good looking 10! So they've been packed into the bag of all the other things I *should* have put on the semi already..

Also, I've heard a rumour that the incubator section of the show is on the same floor as the champagne bar, and it will be open on saturday... which can only be a good thing?

Cheers to that!

Catching up again

I know it was a few days ago now, but I had a great day at the sisters market! Spent much of my time chatting to nikki who has some gorgeous table runners and tea towels and checking out tshirts by simon. I was lucky to have few visitors too! Thank you Lisa for hanging around to help me pack up!

I also saw an old friend (we studied Landscape Architecture together at Melbourne Uni) who I'd sadly lost touch with 5 or so years ago. She was in Melbourne overnight to see Pink and is now involved in the Mothers Market in Hobart and makes gorgeous cards. Amazingly she was carrying a ParisTasmania bag made by the very talented Tara Badcock using my fabric. Meant to be? I might have to make the trip to Tassie for the next market!

Am furiously trying to get some order in this place while the kids are otherwise entertained! I've just sent off new "Large Waterhen" artwork in full width for upholstery weight fabric, just a small run but am planning the next colour already! Am working on a little kit, may run out of time for that today, more on that later!
