I heart the hearts

I should so be in bed by now. Except I'm not. I'm 'researching' for Little Boombalada. Just filling my head with lots of lovely images and whilst browsing, I popped into one of my new favourite blogs Crayon Chick, by the very talented Michelle Harvey.

Michelle was recently in Adelaide for the fabulous Bowerbird Bazaar. There were so many lovely things to look at, but the stand out was this gorgeous frame by Michelle. I just had to have it!

It now sits perkily by my front door and lifts my spirits every time I come in or go out. Thanks Michelle!

More Mathilda's Market & My Bunny Singlets

Thanks to the very clever Toni @ Fairy Dust Design , I've been inspired to update my blog this week. It's literally been Mad March and I feel we're now plateauing out a little and getting back to some semblance of normality!

Now I've had time to breathe, here's a proper update: Mathilda's Market was fabulous fun on Saturday, 6th March. I had a ball and cannot wait for the next one in July! Here is the wrap up on the Mathilda's Market Blog. If only all the lovely stallholders had longer for a chat and catch up! Fortunately most of us were rushed off our feet, so it will have to wait till next time, ladies. A talented friend of mine, Jade, took some wonderful photos of my stall on the day. I'm very happy with the piccies, except now I keep looking at all the other ways I might have arranged things on my table. Another thing for next time!

Now that Mathilda's is over and I've delivered the last of my outstanding orders, I've ripped into gear with the next thing: Easter and my new cute limited Bunny Singlets! They can be ordered in pink, yellow, green or pale blue gingham and in Bonds sized singlets 00, 1 & 2. Bonds sizing is usually quite small, so all singlets have been prewashed to ensure against further shrinkage. Find them in my store, or contact me for different sizing and colours to those listed.

Happy weekend everyone!

Mathilda's Mayhem...

What a busy weekend!

Mathilda's Market went fantastically well, thank you! It was a very busy morning - no time for loo breaks or anything to eat. Just the kind of market I like. Brisk trading in a few hours and time to put the feet up in the afternoon. I'd earned it I think!

Thanks to all the lovely customers that came by, I had a ball and was completely talked out. Might need to start thinking about my application for July's market...

And on the subject of lovely of my favourite blogs - Lark Handmade - have some fabulous prints in store. I love this one...

Go to and check them all out:

The weekend that was and the weekend ahead

I'm a little tired after a super busy weekend seeing this lovely fella...

It seemed he, too, enjoyed the show. No scrimping on '80s classics - well done George!

Back to lots of washing (before the rain comes at the end of this week) and back to the 6 year old's homework! All this and finishing a few bits and pieces in time for Mathilda's Market on Saturday. Thank goodness we're inside, otherwise I'd be a lather of sweat by now! Showers have a habit of appearing at the first sign of an open air market...

Fringing and Festival-ing to be getting into this week and weekend and I'm still to work out when I'm going to be putting my feet up! Only 3 hours till school pickup time, so I'd better get back to the sewing!
