not dead: sleeping


green velvet cuff

I'm still here, just catching up on everything. You'll be pleased to know I have done my tax return - and it's now almost time to do next years...

Back to making my own shoes - perhaps this would be a good first project. Maybe in summer. And no, I'm not going to make your shoes - but if anyone wants to make mine...

Want to see me battling the bitter wind at last week's Queens Park Markets? Hopefully the next one won't be so cold...

And I finally got around to listing some more velvet cuffs on etsy. I love making these, despite the fact that velvet needs a good talking to before stitching - velvet gives them such a great texture and structure.

And, I've been bestowed an administrator of the DUST etsy blog. HandyMan is now calling me "Miss Administrator".

Oh, was that the same Windy windy day I was having a market stall? It was terrible, in Brisbane, for market weather. We spent the whole day picking our wares up off the ground, and chasing them across the market space.... but we had a fun day, and made some new friends - even if there were minimal customers!!
Good luck with your next market.
