My Creative Space.

While we were away at the beach last week my hands were busy crocheting bowls but my head was full of a dreamy, floaty, whimsical range of girls' clothes.

In the madness since we've been home I haven't had much of a chance to get further than the basic shape of a dress and these bloomers, but I'm dreaming about ruffles and frills and pockets and maybe even some crochet details here and there.

There's also lots of creativity going on behind the scenes of the next Daylesford Makers' Market.

The next market will be held on the 28th of November and will have a Handmade Christmas theme.

If you live anywhere near here and are interested in having a stall and or getting involved behind the scenes, please send us an email to daylesfordmakersmarket@gmail.com.

And while we're at it why don't you pop the date in your calendar right now. It's a perfect time of year to come and check out our market and the beautiful Daylesford area too. I'm hearing whispers of a blogmeet...

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
