This little piggy went to market ...

To market, to market - a seamstress must go!! 
And go she did ...
 After sewing like a maniac for the past two weeks
I finally made it to the Make it Bake it Grow it Market held in Bright, Victoria
every 3rd Saturday of the month!

The weather was perfect in the Alps today and lots of locals were out in abundance
shopping for their Christmas presents!

plenty of stocking fillers at the "one denim bird" stall!

and I shared with the incredibly talented Sandy who makes these gorgeous
rainbow beanies, rainbow necklaces and rainbow tea cosies!
(can you feel that rainbow love?)

with lots of fabric in bright colours for custom orders!

and skirts a plenty made from recycled tablecloths!  Perfect for dinner dates!

Pretty little shirring elastic dresses for tiny tots!

Lots of recycled denim .... cushions, baby bibs and baby blankets!

A few frocks for a frolic or two!

And I couldn't have done it without the help from my gorgeous assistant/daughter Grace - thats her and I in our pinnies!

(Luckily I got my brother-in-law to take a happy snap of us in the back yard when we got home - this photographer never seems to get photos of herself! *sigh*)

Anyway petals, it was a very successful day all in all with plenty of sales and few custom orders! 
 I had great feedback and handed out my cards to many potential customers!
I have committed to a January stall so I better get cracking on that machine again!

Now it's time to put my weary feet up and then tomorrow get into Christmas mode!

Hope your feeling the festive love!
