MASSIVE POST ALERT!
First up I am backtracking 48 hours to christmas eve so I can wish you all a very merry christmas! It go so busy here the last few days before christmas that I just plain ran out of time to do the nice christmas message I had all planned out. I was even going to give you all a sneak peek at the only crafty thing I had done all week. ie....
Setting the table for christmas lunch.
Much to my shame, but mainly owing to my MIL sleeping in the sewing room, I wasnt even able to hem the table cloth (which is 3m of poplin bought from spotlight for $3/m) and instead had to take to the edges with pinking shears. ooops! The table runner sitting on top of the green poplin is 12 paper doily's sewn together in a row... an idea I saw in the latest Instyle magazine and just had to enact.
I could share more photo's from christmas (in fact, I probably will, but in a seperate entry) but I really need to back track further to the 7th December and share some pictures of all the things I created and sold at the East Fremantle Festival. It was a HUGE day. Thousands and thousands of people visited the festival. In addition to the artisans stalls, there was live music, fashion parades, free kids activities and plenty to eat and drink. I had many people wander into my stall and received many compliments and even a few (well more than a few) bought items! It was great for my ego thats for sure! LOL. A few weeks before the festival, I contacted my online buddy Sara over at Willow and Moo and asked her if she would help stock my stall with some of her gorgeous hand dyed and hand made childrens clothes. She kindly obliged and Fremantle just loved her stuff (I will admit to allowing a pair of her rainbow Paula pants to sneak into Matilda's cupbard).
But back to me and my clothes! Here is a rather big series of pictires of the clothes I made for the market. Most got sold, and what didnt is now up at Babygoose in Inglewood (contact details to the right).
The day before I set up my stall in the driveway to make sure it all worked ok. Here is a photo I took.
Then here are a bunch of very amateur pictures in a completely random and scrappy order...
