where to put everything

September 16, 2009

The fair went very well. I was so pleased. Now nearly a week later I still have to put things away for the next time. Lucky I have the next few days off. The bags did not sell but thats ok. I got a few views of interest. I will put it down to market research.

pinup bored

I did not take any photos which was silly of me so I will put in instead a new view above my sewing machine. Still a work in progress.

Of vintage clothes that I am selling on Saturday here.
I have been meaning to do this for a while and now I am. I am no longa a gunna.

Some bags that I hopefully will sell. I may even throw in a few of my handmade ones to see how they go. Ya never know. Very excited to not only achieve a goal but to clear out a wardrobe full of clothes.

My sister visited us last week. She lives on the far North Coast and is always lamenting that there are no good finds left up there.
Au contraire. She always manages to scrounge something up for me that she knows I would like.

blue box2

Handmade boxes made from plastic canvas and nylon thread and lined on the inside. Again…awesome!!


And something that I hardly ever do is buy online mags. But I shelled out AU3.10 for Parasol Craft this week. It is very inspirational and makes my heart flutter a little.
And another thing that we (the family) don’t do anymore is go to the footy. Which we are tonight. I have had the slow cooker going , (Traditional Beef Casserole) so we can get there without a rush. Life can get ruttish.

This dolly is coming along very slowly. Alot of things have been resistive in her making. First I didn’t have the right scissors that were little enough,check, then I was in two minds about acrylic or wool felt,check, then I didnt want to buy a new bag of stuffing ,check. Youre glad you’re you arent you?*

*Tongue in cheek. I really can cope in most areas of my life.
