some Handmade action on the weekend

Greetings all,
When the experts suggest you have a 'showstopper' product on your market stall, this is what they are talking about!!
 Torunn from Herbert & Friends is everything that is good & clever about felt & softie perfection.
 So weird to be at Handmade Market as a shopper not a stall holder.
 I caught up with friends - Sarah from Gifts Created, she gave each of my children a moustache.  They have been playing with them & putting on accents ever since!!  Thanks Sarah!!
 Stacey from Anastasia de Grave designs is back, with a new beautiful baby boy too.  I was too busy chatting to some ladies, i didn't even photograph their products.  Next time ladies!!
 My total favourite from Shop Handmade had a stall too, Fiona from The Endless Yarn.  Always keen to support a fellow mother of 4 (all boys).
 My son used his own Christmas cash to adopt a crochet baby for Mr & Mrs Love Monster at home, more on that later, no kidding, on Sunday night, he reinacted Mrs Love giving birth!!  It deserves a post of it's own.  Bumped into a school mum while at Endless Yarn, between us we bought 7 Love Monsters in 5 minutes!! 
 Miss Haidee, she is a twin & total sweetheart!!  Tasmanian of course!! 
 We went bonkers at HeartFelt, look at these finger puppets!!  Much more wrapped up under the Christmas tree.
 Met the lovely Kate from Please Eloise & Eva Grace Designs, adorable lady, as expected.
 Back in the car we sampled the cup cakes from A Moment on the Lips . . . & nose . . .
 on our way to the Old Bus Depot Markets to see my gal pal Emma Kidson.
 She has split her business & rebranded to Japonicity for her amazing range of Japanese inspired designs & Kidson Jewellery for her custom design work (wedding rings etc).  I love it all & have most of her range too!!
 Emma has just had a blinder of a Christmas season, yay, & will have the major bathroom renovation to show for it.  She's the real deal, honours degree in her field & scholorships + awards.  Yes, huge fan!!
 Emma lives in Wagga & stocks the Paper Pear Gallery (i'm going to visit in the new year) or you can find her stunning jewellery at Hive Gallery in Braddon (i've done a lot of Christmas shopping in there this year) & the National Portrait Gallery Canberra.  There is currently a wonderful Impression Exhibition on at the moment with Streeton, McCubbin & Roberts (remember those names from Art History in high school??) 
I actually felt really Ok about not showing this market, my hands have never been so bruised & sore, there was no way i could carry or serve or sew or smile in that pain!!  Love Posie
PS all giveaway winners for Donna Hay & IKEA competitions will be announced a.s.a.p.

Oh god, I love that felt sewing machine! If I was at those markets, I would have had to take it have taken it home with me.

I winced on reading about your poor hands. Has there been any progress on a diagnoses and treatment?

And as for the shoes themselves, absolutely amazing. Extremely comfortable, good looking, and very warm. Please note that the sizes DO NOT run small.
