I've spent the last few days at the Magnolia Square market in Melbourne. It was hard work and I lost my voice, but Angela and I had a few giggles and the best thing was meeting in person lots of lovely crafty blog girls, including Lara, Jodie, Miss Marzie, Vicki, Nichola and Justine. And Dana and Kerry too. And Jo. Hi everyone! ( I'll post some links when I'm back on top of things). We shared a tiny room with two fab designers - Little Chipipi and Little Living Spaces. Erin from Little Living Spaces brought along this cute doll, made by her mum when she was little!
Auntie Cookie was there too and her stall looked awesome, I thought it was the best of all. Ours looked pretty good though, and Angela managed to sneak in some needlework between the busy periods!
Home to sick kids, a sick husband and a million junk emails. Forget about the emails, they can wait until tomorrow. Now that everyone's settled in bed I'll check my favourite blogs insead, and do some crafting. I have just finished these baby shoes - in a Denyse Schmidt cotton with an orange felt sole for contrast. They are too easy! I pulled apart an old leather pair that Jacob had as a baby and use them as a pattern. I'm going to go and try them in some other fabrics right now.
It's good to get back to designing and making stuff after being 'out on the road' for what feels like weeks!
