My work today

I have been sewing today. I have a paper quilted name to complete by tomorrow so I can send it on its way to Western Australia for a little girl who is turning one next month. All I need to do now is the embellishing and I will be finished. I'll tackle that this evening. The photo here is a little dull because I took it at 5pm outside but it gives some idea of the piece.

I never get sick of looking at the sky at this time of day - beautiful.

Easter Sunday at the Old Bus Depot Market

After an absolute down pour last night (at last) it was a clear sunday for the Easter Sunday market. It was incredibly busy this morning and I had a terrific day with lots of sales and several orders for Paper Quilt pictures, alphabet letters and names. Which means of course, lots of work up at "The Shed" this week. Lucky I tidied it up and -of course changed things around (nothing new in that department!!). I bought two rolls of beautiful antique handmade lace for the quilted Pret-a-Porter dresses and a gorgeous bag from Sonia Burke of "Silk n' Things". Impossible to resist.
