another hurdle leapt over, the count down begins

Greetings all,
With a very chilly & frosty start to a gorgeous sunny Winter's day, we had another cosy Mathilda's Market in Canberra at the Hyatt Hotel.  My bookcase did it's job, gracefully carried in by Anastasia from
Cheeky Textiles (thanks Stacey!!) & considering i rocked up after 8a.m. i was pretty impressed i was ready to go in 40 minutes!!  The benefit of a smaller position, table ready set up for you & it's more a case of positioning your products. 
So i had the book case to the one side & stood behind the table.
Hiding behind the table was my son who was so good for 3.5 of the 4 hours, bless him, at the half way point he really wanted to go home.  The cool dad on the stall next to me offered up his iPhone which took the edge off the last hour!! 
What a gorgeous surprise, from the lovely Jennie from Melei who said she saw a comment on a blog i made somewhere, saying that i loved these fruity note pads & da dah, just like that, she gave me a set as gifts.  How sweet Jen, thanks & not stalkerish at all!!  Her handsome son was also with her today.  Basically we "Jennie's" are just the nicest people you'll ever meet, just ask anyone called Jennie, we'll tell you!!
Sorry for the amateur photography, i realise now i had the flash off, so images are a bit blurry & under done, alas, you can make out that this is a cute owl, which my son named Blue, Hooters, Owly, Big Eyes & finally settled on Hooty by the time we got him home . . . & when i mentioned the band Hooty & the Blow Fish, he just went into a fit of giggles.  It does sound ridiculous out of context doesn't it?? 
Finally, this fabulous cushion from Skye Rocket Sews, Mel said her mother did the crochet & it is so perfect for my 3rd daughter . . . so up her alley by way of textures, colours, mixed crafty mediums & she loves accessorising her bed!!
So thanks to Anne for putting on a lovely market, another event down, 7 days to Europe!!  Love Posie
