Coogee beach this morning.

I have been in Sydney with my Mum over the past few days. We have been attending the Gift Trade Fair at Darling Harbour. Great but tiring few days, as there are many exhibitors to get around and see. As we woke this morning... I looked out to a red sky. Caused by strong winds and blowing red dust/dirt over Sydney and much of NSW. We were staying in Coogee, so I walked down to the beach to take some photos. I am now back home and there is red dust over everything here outside.

Fabulous Friday Fabrics!

Loving this fabric collection by Patty Young. Mezzanine fabric collection inspired by the fabulous stonework, ironwork, terraces, gardens and tapestries she photographed during her travels throughout Northern Europe. You can see the French, Belgian and Dutch influence of cathedrals, theaters, museums and castles in Patty's designs.

The French Market

My purchases
Our market stall

Around the grounds

Had a great day at the French market. Here are some photos of the market stall and around the grounds of where it was held in Kincumber on the Central Coast...very happy with my purchases, I love the old bread and cake tins, they will add a bit of character in the kitchen.
(Kim if you are reading this - Sorry - don't mean to rub it in about the tins......)
There were lots of people out and about on a beautiful (but very hot) spring day!

Baby Bloomers

I have been busy sewing these cute little baby bloomers. Doing a variety of boys and girls. I really like the boys fabrics, something a bit different from blue, not sure how much I should charge for these??? Just doing a few of these to see how they go at the market. Great for babies in the summer months with a matching singlet. Singlets - next on my to do list.

In the Post

I have finished the peasant style dresses for my cousins daughters to try on for sizing. I added in a couple of pairs of the capris pants I have been making with some T-Shirts. She has 4 girls so how could I just send 2 dresses. Really happy with how the tee with the rose trim turned out. Dresses up a plain tee and makes it a bit special. I am not the best photogragher, first photo blurred and my arrangement of the outfits not the best, but you get the idea.....Hope they like them!!
