I'm home again from another marvellous weekend in Melbourne.
Shirt & Skirt was a treat. Great weather, lots of people, but the best thing was spending some time with Pia and all the other crafty girls. Thanks ladies!
Everyone seemed to be pleased that Christmas is nearly here, and we're all looking for a little holiday.
Here in Apollo Bay things are starting to pop up around town that show that it's Summer holiday time. The carnival has arrived and is nearly all set up on the foreshore. It brings back memories of my own childhood holidays down on the Mornington Peninsula, where a trip to the carnival at Rye was always a highlight. For some reason I'm thinking about toffee apples, that must have been something my sister and I were allowed as a special treat!
The other thing that gets me very excited is the cinema that runs in the Mechanics Institute Hall every Summer from Boxing Day until the end of the school holidays. The program came out this week, and I can't wait to get down there and see some films and eat some choc tops!

Here's Pia at our stall. The market is held in the grounds of a sweet little church and hall right in the heart of Seddon.
We caught up with so many wonderful girls we hadn't seen for a little while, I'm not sure if you could call it work!
Sunday it was on to Shirt & Skirt at the Abbotsford Convent.
We caught up with lots more of our market friends.
Lucy and Zoe from Beehive, makers of fine frocks.
Rochelle of Little Red Duck. The cutest kids t-shirts around, all with Rochelle's amazing designs printed on them.
Squirt Baby's beautiful stall, packed with the prettiest clothes for little girls. Hi Fiona!
I'm concentrating all my attention on Magnolia Square now. It's only a little over a week away and there's lots of sewing to be done between now and then.
I always get a little nervy at the idea of enough stock for 3 days, but I know I'll get it all done. I am looking forward to spending time with friends, doing a little shopping, and meeting some new people as well!

Sometimes things just all come along at the same time. This week seems to be turning into a tea towel week for me. I stopped by GeorgieLove this morning, and look what has just been listed!

Here is where the Frankie & Ray blog is written from, the end of the dining table. Location driven by dodgy internet access at Skenes Creek and the need to have an external aerial and power point close by.

And finally, the view from the bed. The cats have their playpen out on the front deck. They have always had a cat cage, and this one has a very nice view over the street. I do love my cats, but I do also think they need to be kept away from our lovely wildlife. And down here we are lucky enough to have lots and lots and lots of birds!

I was back at the Apollo Bay market this morning. It was only my second time back after a long break for Winter. It was kind of sunny and cloudy, warm and cool, breezy and not breezy! A kind of mixed up weather morning.
Matt the bicycle smoothie man. He is a tourist attraction on his own, pedalling his bike to drive his blender to make great smoothies and fruit juices.
(I had mango, watermelon, and orange juice this morning. Yum.)
Judy from Otway Herbs Nursery, one of the founders of this community market.

This is the view from my sewing machine. In both directions.
Better get back to it I suppose....
