Picturesque Pialligo

How stunning does this look!
Taken just before the first sitting at MissChief Makers High Tea where throughout the afternoon 150 well dressed people ( you could see everyone was treating this as a special occasion) were served the most delicious afternoon tea with all the trimmings like jam and cream.
There was much chatter and shopping amongst the guests. Questions like: When is the next High Tea Event?, could just be heard over the cello.

Ready and Waiting

Tomorrow is MissChief Makers High Tea Event and I am ready with these.
Made with love are these brooches. My mum (for love) handknits up the Mohair swatches for me and then I felt them and cut them, add a divine button and you have these soft cuddly brooches to adorn woollen knits, jackets and bags.
I have already begged Mum to knit some more for 'Handmade in Bloom' in September......Floriade here I come.

I have been busy

This week I met with the buyer for the Gift Shop at the National Gallery of Australia. I showed him my brooches, in particular the Zip brooch which compliments their current exhibition 'Reinventions: sculpture+assemblage'. Well, he loved them and at this very moment the zipper brooches are for sale there. What a lovely souvenir after visiting the exhibition!

Also this week I have a confirmed booking for the next Handmade Market, 'Handmade in Bloom'. The market is being held on Friday 11 Sept 6-9pm and Saturday 12 Sept 10-4pm at Albert Hall. Take a look at the other designers who are taking part on http://www.handmademarket.com.au/ You wont be disappointed. The brooch above will be the new design to be showcased at the 'Handmade in Bloom'!

Life is good!

next showing High Tea MissChief Maker ,Rodneys, Pialligo, ACT

It has been a day at the Periodontist with Elwyn he has a stray tooth in his gum so today they placed a chain on the end of this tooth (which is up in his gum) and they will try and gradually pull it down to the space that is waiting. Yes not nice. He seems ok.

Not alot got done today as I also went to lunch.

But I do have these awaiting the next showing of my brooches at MissChief Maker's High Tea Event at Rodney's Pialligo, 27 June 09. If your interested in coming let Kate know. RSVP is essential. See more about this on MissChief Maker's website.

Back to making

Its been 2 weeks since I almost sold out of all my goodies at the Canberra handmade markets . So after a bit of a breather I have started to make some more brooches today.

Somehow I think the wintery day played a part in the fabric colors I chose today....chocolate/purple/cream...yum.

The Style Emporium and MissChiefMaker are nicely stocked as well with a range of brooches.

I am busy getting ready for the next major showing of my accessories. Details soon :)

My first post

Okay, I have been googling over a few craft blogs and wanting to be part of all this fun, so (with the help of my 16 year old son) here I am. Will my blog interest anyone? maybe. I have a huge passion for craft, gardening, cooking and of course my family. I need to learn to add photos ( this is where my 14 year old son may come in handy). So I will ponder this all over a cuppa and get back to this tomorrow!
