well the days just seem to be blurring into each other at the moment...
wake up in the morning, and it's evening before I know it!

anyway, on the weekend I attended a small market at the Wandin North Primary School..
it's their annual fete and major fundraiser for the school...
they only have 25 outside stall holders and I was lucky enough to be asked, as the girls had been to Healesville and seen what I had to offer...they asked, I went.

well what a great day!
the sun was shining...30degrees, lots of people, great entertainment for the day, and lots of sales!
after my last Healesville market, this one was a blessing!!!

we set up and waited...and waited...and finally a sale!
it was the first of quite a few...
I'm always sorry to sell my stuff...I want to keep it all, but know that's not possible..

sorry about the quality of the pics, they were taken in the early morning sun...but I think you get the idea...

No more markets until after Winter now...
back to some stitching for me! and pattern writing! and some designing! maybe!

more finishes!

this one is finally finished!
I started this some years ago...about 8 I think...
this is the second one I have done of this pattern, the first one ended up being a wedding gift...as I didn't know what to get the couple and this seemed to be a good idea...it was...they love it!
so I needed to do another one for me....here it is...
all I had to do was the binding (for the last 5 years or so...how slack is that?)

and this one is finished also....my friend did the stitcheries...they were in that big black bag of "stuff" she gave me last year...so here they are done into a wallhanging to showcase all those special buttons instead of hiding them in a jar! (this one is for sale)

and I finished another couple of needlecases for the up coming markets
won't show you pics cos you're probably sick of seeing them!

off to see what else is in the UFO basket...
it's finally getting down a bit!
happy stitching if you have the chance today!
