Handmade Market - Oh how I love thee!

Hi there!  Remember me?  I know I'm so slack at the blogging thing, but I'm great on facebook!  It also doesn't help that my internet connection is not a fan of blogger and really dislikes uploading photos.

Last Saturday was the ever-amazing Handmade Market in Canberra at The National Convention Centre.  Oh...My...Golly-Gosh!  Not only was this THE best market ever, but it was also the first time that my new business The Cherry Tree was at Handmade Canberra.  The Cherry Tree is a collaboration between myself and my gorgeous friend - the very talented Vanessa Thorley (Savvy Sparrow).  As I now live in the cherry capital a business name to reflect where we are from was absolutely necessary!

We had THE best day!  Our customers were lovely, neighbouring stallholders were great fun and all of our hard work and effort really paid off.

Here's a couple of snaps from the day:

Cushions and funky wall art

Rufflicious cushion with matching lamp (love this combo!)

And another set but this time with a matching memory board.  Love the doillie lamp as well - they turned out super-cute!

A quick glance at our stall (please excuse the blue tablecloth!)

Can't wait to do it all again at the Handmade Market Canberra Mega Market on Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd!

Look what we bought!!!!!

...our own piece of Australia!  10 acres of pure bliss.

Now for the building part.  I have been told that it will be worth every tear that I shed!

Hello there!

I know I have been a bit MIA of late but we are now all unpacked and settled into our new house.  The move itself went pretty well, although at the last minute we needed to order another truck as we had filled the first one to the brim!  Needless to say we have had quite a clean out as we unpacked - no junk has entered this house!  Let's not talk about the garage then...

We now live on 10 acres and I have learnt a few new things since living here - reliable internet access is a beautiful thing, using a ride on mower, living on tank water and pool maintenance!

I have also had quite a few towel orders come through since Christmas and I thought I'd share these ones with you.  They are for 2 sisters who both love pink and green so I made these for them:


I wanted to make them slightly different though so one has been stitched with pink thread and the other with green.  Didn't they turn out nicely?
