e&l @ finders keepers

I'm so pleased with the massive weekend at Finders Keepers. I had a sweet little spot on the verandah this time, the weather was perfect, the bands were fab and I couldn't ask for better company.

Brisbane proved once again it has the goods when it comes to supporting independent crafters, artists and designers. The first 3 hours of each day were packed with punters ready to shop handmade.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by for a gossip, a laugh, to do some shopping and to my chief confidant who kept the stall in good order while I frolicked around.

I'm still in recovery mode but that doesn't last long in these parts, next up is the BrisStyle Indie Eco Market on Saturday 10 July (more details coming soon or check it out here) and I'll be at Suitcase Rummage this Sunday in King George Square with a few brooches, pendants and some goodies from my recent shoe and wardrobe clean out.

See you there!

new work

hand-embroidery on navy cotton

Life threw a few curve balls at me in the last month and while I haven't been blogging as much I've still been stitching :)

Only one more sleep till Brisbane's Finders Keepers! I'll be on the verandah so if you're in the area pop in and check out some new work.

Plus I have a new display but I'll leave that post till after the weekend ;)

See you there!

i heart hankies

I love hankies especially vintage ones, I couldn't resist doing a little stitching on this one I picked up from Elsie Betty.

I have three more of these and, if finished in time, they will be making their debut at Finders Keepers and BiECO.

weekend wrap up

It was a beautiful Winter day at the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market on Saturday, loads of fun and lots of laughter as always.

I managed to finish off Persephone just in time for the market. Thanks to Ellie for the name suggestion on my last post. There will be more of these coming soon!

Then it was off to Suitcase Rummage on Sunday, loads of fun and lots of fantastic people-watching. If you're in Brisbane and you haven't been to this market it is well worth the trip. Thanks Trudy for the pic :)

Big thanks to everyone who stopped by on the weekend, it was lovely to see you all!

And now it's heads down tails up for Finders Keepers at the end of the month...

My creative space ...

I'm working on a new embroidery, it's on a lovely crisp linen tea towel I purchased a few weeks back from Ellie. I'm hoping to have it finished for the BiDM on Saturday. It just needs a name, any suggestions?

More spaces over at Kirsty's.

meet me at the markets!

Brisbanites, get your diaries out and get ready to shop handmade! Pop by and say hi to me at these markets in June:

BrisStyle gets bigger by the week and the Indie Designers Market this Saturday promises to be chock full of all Brisbane's favourite crafters and designers plus some fresh new talent. I'll be in the co-op stall outside stocked up with loads of goodies including a limited run of my new pendants!

I'm moving soon which means there'll be a de-stash of vintage craft books and other bits and pieces as well as a selection of edward & lilly products at Suitcase Rummage on this Sunday 6 June from 12-5pm at King George Square in the City!

And I'm super excited to announce that I'll be at the Brisbane Autumn/Winter Finders Keepers at the end of the month. I'm working really hard to get my stock levels to maximum capacity plus I'm aiming to have some one-off embroidered pieces only available at Finders Keepers. For those who love seeing what comes out of my little crafty space this will be a special event not to be missed! Details here.
