This pile above became the inspiration I needed to keep my brain on track for the mammoth sewing operation that took place in my office in preparation for the Markets this Sunday.
I love creating palettes with beautiful items instead of the normal tile, carpet and paint swatches. I would much rather the Irish Linen (white one, which I didn’t have the guts to cut up yet!), herringbone grey wool, antique feed sack, vintage linen trim and the gorgeous patina of the old spoon I found in the garden and my little wreath.
That pile lead to this pile…new cushion/pillow covers and stockings…and loads of them too! I am loving the ruffled stockings, made with the vintage trim, white linen and soft burlap linen. They aren’t finished yet – still have to be pressed and some still need printing on, but at least they are done.
Some new ones I played about with…

A new Eye Doctor cover made with the herringbone wool I am smitten with at the moment.
I told you I made lots!! My poor office looked like a bomb went off and I don’t think I will get it back to normal until after the markets are done with. All of these items will be available at The Evandale Markets on Sunday 13th December at my stall I will be sharing with my very creative paper manipulating friend, Jolee…come for a look if you are about. I would love to see you.
My packing table with some of the orders waiting to be shipped off…it’s a mess too. I worked pretty much all day Saturday and from after breakfast until 10:30pm Sunday night! A long weekend indeed, but I can safely say I will have enough stock for the markets…now for the displays…!!! =0I
