To market, to market


Hello! 
Many thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post, it seems many people have been touched by the kindness of their communities too, which is fantastic!

This week I am hoping  to get back in the swing of crafty things as I have signed up for a stall at a new market (to me), to be held in early September, so I had better get cracking! 
The market is called Nanna Cool and is fairly local to me, being held in Chelsea about 40minutes from here.  So if you are anywhere near Chelsea or the Mornington Peninsula on September 6th come and say hello! 

Anyway, I have been making these dangly flowers to take to the market, I think they will add a nice colour hit to my stall, and they are fun to make!
I am using my flower pattern from here to make these, and having fun mixing colours from the lovely selection of Cascade Ultra Pima I got in my shop last week.  So many choices !! 


I have written a list of things I'd like to make for this market, plus there are lots of half made things around my work room that need finishing, so I hope I have enough stuff to make the stall look good.
I am thinking of making it a bit of a pop-up wool shop too, I am going to bring along some bright beautiful yarns to inspire everyone to get out their hooks and needles.  It is always nice to be able to feel the yarns before you buy, one of the drawbacks of having an online shop.

It is very dull here today, so sorry for the dark photos, I have few more flowers to finish off ( I am trying to make one for every branch on my tree) and then I will try and take some better photos to show off my flower tree properly! It should look good. 

What are you up to today?  Got any crafty action happening?

Talk soon!

  5. I love the tree. Good luck at the market, I only wish I could get there. I am currently thinking about a blanket for my daughter based on your different strippy one some time back. I just love looking at that blanket and if mine is half as good I will be very happy. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Lovely flower tree!! I'm in the UK so not able to go to your market unfortunately. I'll be going to Yarndale at the end of September - if you've heard of it. I'm finishing a small daisy blanket. Doing the last row then the ends to sew in.

  14. What a site for a wool lovers eyes! If I were there I'd want to buy the tree and all! So beautiful! I'm sure that will draw the buyers to your booth for sure, good luck. Our first rainy day here in a long dry summer, so I'm at my sewing machine for most of the day finishing a quilt my MIL started years ago and didn't get to finish, for my youngest daughter's birthday, a quilt from grandma and mom. Happy hooking!
