The market seems to come around so quickly and as per usual I'm sewing like a maniac in the last week to the lead up to the market. I took my textile collages to the market and there was much oohing and aahing. I'm such a hopeless hardsell though. I kept directing people over to the prints of the collages rather than hitting them up for the originals. I don't know if I can bear to sell them. I love them and I've put so much work into them and at this stage I can't part with them. Beautiful day was had by all under the olive trees. The ground is getting a bit muddy though, but I've come up with a great ground covering - fake grass. I'm loving the fake grass and is the perfect market stall floor covering. At the end of the day it can be either hosed off or just shaken clean. At this market I cranked out a few kiddie scarves which I'm super happy with. I'll be sure to post pics of them when I have a decent one. They are my own design and super dooper cute.
After much success at the markets I had a ladies luncheon in the Hunter Valley vineyards on the Sunday. We had lunch at the jawdroppingly beautiful Bistro Moline's. It is perched on a hill and looks out to, what seems like, neverending vineyards and mountains. It is truly spectacular and I came back truly revitalised and inspired. I feel another collage coming on.
