A little Liberty for all

I love it when somehow I hit on something that everyone seems to like.
And, even better, I love making them too.
There's an endless number of fabric combinations lurking in my stash.
So much fun!

Hello weekend!

Even though my working week is all over the place, I still love Fridays.
And I'm very much looking forward to this weekend.
It's been a while since I've been off to a market, and this Sunday you'll find me in Geelong.
I'll be hoping for a good catch up with some of my market friends I haven't seen for a while.
The venue is lovely, and the line up is fabulous as always. so come along to the Deakin Waterfront Cafe for a great Sunday outing!

A big week

Time flies when you're having fun!
It's Wednesday afternoon already, and this last week's been busy.

I've had the pleasure of another custom order for not one, but two, lovely little shirts, that are today winging their way off to Switzerland. Fancy that! 
Every now and again there is a reminder that we live in a little global village after all.

In other happenings, my friend Sally and I have been dreaming up a new adventure.
We're jumping our market trestle tables to become market organisers, and after several very fun meetings over coffee, and quite a few phone conversations, we've hatched our baby!

The historic Apollo Bay Mechanics' Institute Hall is booked for Sunday, November 4.
That's Melbourne Cup weekend, a strange non-long weekend that usually is, with most people making a 4 day break after Winter by hooking up with the first Tuesday in November public holiday. 
We've set ourselves up a facebook page, and a blog.
Come over and take a look, and if you're a designer, maker, grower, or cook, perhaps you'd like to come down and join us?

Scarf weather

Well, yes, hello, it's still Winter!

Not much we can do about that is there?

The evenings are getting just a little bit longer.

And we had some lovely sunshine here yesterday.

It was nice to sit outside a cafe in the street and have a coffee in the sun, and dream of Spring.

But, while we're waiting, there's some new scarves in the shop to keep you warm and snug!

The long and the short of it

One gorgeous Liberty fabric, two ways!

Trying to pick a favourite is impossible!

But, I have always been a bit partial to a polka dot.

Sunshine in a bag

There's nothing like some colourful linens to brighten up my day.
I've been meaning to get around to a couple of tea towel bags for a while - nothing like a long deadline to turn me into a total procrastinator!
The beautiful Western Australia bag sums up the perfection of a souvenir tea towel - it's all there, the Swan River (with swans!), the Perth city skyline, and a selection of wildflowers. 
I'm delighted that my beloved Aunt will be taking this with her to the West as a gift for a dear friend of hers.

While I was at it, I couldn't go past this beauty from my stash.
It's Spring in a bag!
If you need your own dose of sunshine, then it's in the shop this morning.
