Hello there, time for a market report.....
Sheep sales were up this week, hehe.
Oops, sorry, wrong market report.
Saturday was the monthly market in Bright.
It started off with a very foggy drive, I had to slow right down as I could barely see two metres in front of me. Fortunately, there was no traffic on the windy road so I could take my time.
Once the fog lifted it was a beautifully, sunny day.....
I made some camper van zip purses using recycled blankets.
Some camper van brooches too....seems to be a recurring theme here!
I finished the Daffodil tea cosy and lined it with yellow and white polka dot fabric
I forgot to pack my teapot to display the cosy so
used scrunched up plastic bags to fill it, hence the wonky shape.
It found a new home with a neighbouring stall holder who had fond memories of learning the Wordsworth poem at school.....
Anyone for a cuppa?.....
Due to recent rain it was a little muddy underfoot.
The river was well up and flowing very fast.
I've never been around to see it this high.
Not surprised there weren't any ducks braving a swim.
Although sales were well down on last months market, I covered my costs and then some.
When all was packed up I made a quick trip to the local Op shops, one of which was closed due to lack of volunteers.
(They've headed North for the Winter)
Come on girls this just won't do, hehe.....
I then headed over to Ginger Baker, a little gem of a cafe situated at 127 Great Alpine Rd.
If you are in the area make sure you pop in, it's wonderful
A nice way to finish the day.......
Stall holder and all round clever, crafty person Lauren and her lovely friend Mel met me there.
I decided on coffee and carrot cake, yum.....
Check out these amazing light shades.....pasta sauce jars.
Recycling at it's best.....aren't they great?
Have a look at that cake display.....double yum.
While I ummed and aahed over what to order guess what Lauren and Mel were doing?.....
Playing with my camera!!
Sneaky girls...you crack me up
That's Lauren on the left and Mel on the other left!!
Lauren is off working and travelling for quite a few months, venturing to the Middle East first and then the UK.
Safe travels Lauren, I will miss you.
Hope to see you at the market Mel and maybe you'll be having a stall one day!
All in all a good day, lots of fun, laughter, chit chat and CAKE.
The lovely weather has continued, so today was spent out in the garden.
Mrs Brown was there to help once again.
I weeded, pruned, shifted plants around and had a rather splendid time. No.1 mowed/slashed the green stuff and in a day or three we could just about bale it!!
Certainly looks alot better.
The Violets have been taking over and much in all as I love them and I once had an Auntie Violet, they have become a bit of a nuisance.
I picked a lovely bunch before I pulled the plants out.
Barely made a dent in them!
I'm hoping to get some more gardening done this week before the wet weather arrives. I'll give the sewing machine a bit of a rest, although some play time might take place!!
I'll pick more Violets as I love vases of them on my bed side table and of course there'll be all the usual house work and boring stuff taking place, but who wants to read about that?
I hope your week has some fun in store.
Let me know what you're up to, I'd love to hear.
Thanks for popping by and saying 'hi', it's always great to hear from you,
Take care ,
