The Lion , The Witch & The Wardrobe

I have been very busy for the last couple of weeks planning and preparing for the annual Mt. Gambier Christmas Parade.

This year the I took charge of our school's "float" and we went with the Narnia theme...

We were offered the use of a drop deck semi - and I managed to fill it with props!

This is what we did...

Market Inspiration

After a market I am always full of inspiration to make lots of stuff...

I haven't really done much, but the ideas are there!

After talking with Sue of Sew Sewn about reading the magazine Mollie Makes I decided I was definitely going to make the little purse kit that came as a freebie with the most recent issue.

Here it is...

I made my own fabric choice -

and I like!

I await to see what Sue comes up with...

Market - Party

Straight from the Market on Sunday I went to Sharon's Birthday Party.

It was a delightful High Tea put on by Wendy,


It was a lovely.

This is the gift I made and gave to Sharon.

Hidden 9 Patch Bag and Scarf.

November Market

Sunday was the Library Market Day.

Everything went well.

There was some fabulous but slightly loud at times music right next to me -
which was nice...

Here are a few of the new items that I had on my stall.

 I got a bit of a buzz to see the gorgeous Jenna-Alyce wearing one of these to work on Monday.
Thanks Jenna!
