taking a moment

Everything is moving at such a fast pace and I keep making promises to myself that I will document all of the amazing workshops and events that flit by as well as my own creative practice.

So here is June which kicked off with our usual macramé workshop at Jungle Bar in West End, we are loving these fun little get togethers and have met loads of new people over cocktails and knotting!

Then the most amazing creative collaboration between myself, Jules & Jon and Trudy as we kicked off the month with the Etsy craft party which you can read about here and watch here.

Soon after we had Maryann Talia Pau along to Brown Owls to teach us star weaving for the one million stars to end violence against women project. It was a beautiful and memorable morning.

Our stars above and I've been trying to make a star a day since...

Our first evening meet up at The Nest was so much fun, lots of treats to eat and giggles. I ran a little cosy crochet cowl workshop and everyone did an amazing job especially the beginners.

Another beautiful day spent teaching macramé at the World Refugee Day Community Festival in the Brisbane City Council intercultural tent. I've been tutoring a refugee family for over 3 years now so it was great to be able to contribute to the community in a super creative way.

I became Enews Editor/Publicity Officer (and joined the committee) of the Australian Textile Arts and Surface Design Association (ATASDA Qld). Joanne Borgatti, a truly inspiring fashion designer gave a talk at our social meet up and I got to shop up a storm directly with Prudence Mapstone.

And to end the month Dyani of Little Deer Studio taught us all how to make paper beads from junk mail at Brown Owls which was loads of fun and so good to end the month with a catch up with Dyani.

And these two of course who make my heart sing, wearing their cosy crochet cowls from our meet up earlier in the month!

In between all of that I've been prepping for Finders Keepers which is on this weekend, details are here.

Another beautiful month passes and another one begins, I treasure all of these creative moments and couldn't do it without the support of Wayne (aka Country Boy) who is building me a new market stall display for this weekend as I type ;)

Back to it!
