They're all saying it
Happyspider and I had a lovely day at the markets on Sunday. It was pretty cold in there, but we were prepared: sitting still in a big, unheated shed in winter is always going to be cold. I dressed a bit like I was going skiing - many layers.
Amongst overall decent sales, we sold A LOT of wristwarmers! Clearly we weren't the only ones feeling the cold.
There are still button bracelets ($30), a few pods (similar price range to last time), and some pears ($30) available. I'll list them here if there is interest. But don't worry, I don't expect to keep pumping my regular readers here for sales! The interest and support last time was a thrill, and greatly appreciated. I hope to fire up an etsy shop sooner or later (I've been pondering it long enough). Quiltingmick has just launched Buttontree Lane and the Sunnyboy bags sure moved fast! I wanted one but didn't move fast enough, and now I have to wait. I'm very patient though.
I only made one purchase on Sunday - other than hot coffee and hot food - and I am in love with it. Really, I just want to look at at, turn it around in my hands, then occasionally pose objects on it.
It's a piece called 'Mostly Forwards', by Canberra fibre artist Jocelyn Plovits. It's made from dyed Canary Island pine needles.
I stood at her stall for ages, fondling all the beautiful pieces and trying to decide what to buy.
I used Happyspider's 'First Kiss' colourway for that last pod. Isn't that a great name?
