New Year - Market

After the Christmas rush it has been a quiet week to recover.  Hope you have found some quiet time before the New Year celebrations begin.

Markets begin again on Sunday at the Arts Centre Market in Melbourne.  So new stock for the New Year.

A periwinkle tea cosy with yellow and blue flowers.

And a touch of glamour with this purple beaded tea cosy.

Am packing for the market today so will take more photos - might be back later.

Where will I see you??

If you are out and about this weekend you will find me at Buninyong Farmers Market on Saturday Morning, the Daylesford Makers Twilight Market from 4pm Saturday and then on Sunday at the Melbourne Arts Centre Market from 10am.  So still plenty of markets to browse for last minute gifts.
I'm all packed and ready to go!!!

This week I have been designing tea cosies, brooches and felted hats.  Yarn spinning is next on the list.

This cosy is the last one finished today.  A colour combination that would suit a vintage teaset.

A mini tea cosy for the mini teapot.
Red and charcoal is a popular colourscheme.  This cosy sold as soon as I put it on the website.  Will make more with a red theme.

To Market, To Market

Life is busy, busy for most of us before Christmas.  Sometimes we need to take some time out.  I've been in the vegie garden this afternoon.  Pulled out lots of weeds, planted vegies and ate raspberries. Yum.

Sunday I'm at the Arts Centre with lots of sock yarn and new  tea cosies.

And then next weekend I'm at the Buninyong Farmers Market on the morning of the 18th, then in the afternoon I'll be at Daylesford Makers Twilight Market.  Sunday the 19th is the last Arts Centre Market for the year.  So some great markets for last minute shopping including vegies and fruit at Buninyong.

Yarn for Socks

More sock yarn has found its way out of the dye pot - well not by itself.  These yarns are about to listed on the website. Dyeing a mix of colours, not leaving the guys out this time!  Sock Yarn

Yarn Thursday

A peek at some of the yarn available from my Shop this afternoon.  Market customers are welcome to contact me if they would like a particular colour and you can then collect from the Arts Centre Market on Sunday.  I'll be adding sock yarns, 5 ply, 8 ply and Chunky yarn.  So back to the studio to label the yarn.

Sock Yarn at Arts Centre Market

The sock yarn is ready to be launched tomorrow.  The yarn was dyed yesterday and it didn't take long to dry.  Just finished winding the yarn into balls.  Not sure if I can always do this but when you buy sock yarn you just want to start knitting.

Some browns and greens and blues

 Pink mix, purples and a jewel mix.

Red/orange and a dark turquoise/grey/brown mix.

I'll be at the Melbourne Arts Centre Market from 10am.  Remember that if you spend $20 you can fill in a form for the Christmas prize draw.

If you can't make it to the market and want to purchase some sock yarn please contact me.

A Mauve Day

A brooch made using a hand made ceramic button and vintage lace.

And a tea cosy with the ever popular mauve/purple theme.

I will be in the SIDE ROOM at the Buninyong Makers Market tomorrow.  Market starts at 10am in the Buninyong Town Hall.  Customer Raffle at the Market also.

Catch Up Friday

During the week we finally went to see the Lal Lal Falls. We often go to the falls for a BBQ/Picnic but this is the first time for ages there has been such a waterfall.  I packed a picnic as it was David's birthday.

The sky has been putting on quite a display.  Cloud formations and colours have been magical.

Within a few minutes the colours and cloud formations change.

Our last group for the year of Farmstay students has been to stay with us.  This time the girls really wanted to send postcards home.  I didn't dare say that they would be home before the postcards would arrive as these farmstays are only for a few days.   The weather was kind to us with the only rain falling on the last morning.

I'll be back later to show you new tea cosies ready for the weekend markets at Buninyong and Arts Centre Melbourne.
