Market days



I've been playing with my scrap stash to prepare for the markets. Rag rugs and hand painted potholders with fabric appliqué getting ready to be made up for the stall - And a couple for a swap. My store Hilda and Lillian will be at the Cabarlah markets on the 26th February, 2017.
Hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.

Home stay

 
With the Summer heat about I have been pottering around inside organizing things and clearing out stuff. It's a good time to be indoors clearing out things.

 
I've also been doing a lot of crafting, I've signed up for a local markets at the end of the month.

 
In the garden, I've been cleaning out the pots. A lot of the herbs are doing well in this heat which is good for them.
 
And as always I've been painting too. 
 
 
Have a good day or evening where ever you are.
