I have two markets this weekend.
So I'm quite busy making stuff this week.
OK, so I'm very busy. Not quite as busy as some very talented but completely crazy people who have been galavanting all over the country selling their gorgeous goodies and have not two, but three markets this coming weekend. I feel like a complete lightweight!
Outrageous Fortune. Perhaps I should name them Judd and Pascale?
I've been having lots of fun creating and making. I do enjoy a good high pressured sew-a-thon, but it can get quite dangerous. There was the bit earlier this week, when I blew up my iron (flames came out, very dramatic... don't iron stuff with pins in okay?). And then there's all the broken sewing machine needles which never, ever break gently, but tend to fly off like tiny ninjas on bungy cords. And don't get me started on the pins stuck in bare feet (I can't sew in shoes). It's amazing crafters don't incur high insurance premiums really. I wonder how many of the claims that ACC receives each year are for craft-related accidents?
I can't stay at my sewing machine all the time so I've been making some more tape measure rose brooches too. I quite like the colours of these ones. I think I might keep that green one myself. Looks quite summery.
So what are you doing this weekend? Oh, you're coming to visit me at the markets? That's lovely, thank you! I should tell you where they are shouldn't I? There's one on Saturday 6th at Micheal Park Steiner School, 55 Amy Street, Ellerslie, 9.30am- 3pm and the other is on Sunday 7th: Devonport Craft Market, 32 Clarence Street, Devonport, 10am-3pm. They'll both be great days out, but the Saturday Micheal Park one is particularly fabulous if you have kids. Just make sure you bring another responsible adult with you to look after them while you go shopping and drink coffee.
Talking of coffee, you should go and make one now and head over to Kirsty's where there are lots and lots of gorgeous Creative Spaces to see. Have a great day and see you at the weekend!
