Enough with the tourist info and back to the crafty craftness. I've finally manged to produce something in my new studio (is three months still new?) and I'm mighty proud. Stitched here and there in mostly five minute power sewing sessions when I could manage to sneak off from the children.... these little ladies are legless and armless versions of my dolls. Perfect for those who prefer their toys immobile.

You can get one next weekend the 6th Feb at the Daylesford Makers Market along with some other great stuff that I am yet to produce but is jumping around madly in my head. There will also be a host of other wonderfully creative folk from the region with their amazing handmade goodies.

Glenlyon Market is on again!

I'm busy sewing my little booty off for the next Glenlyon Make it, Bake it, Grow it Market.

I'm working on a whole batch of new dolls with little dresses to go with them. I've also created a gaggle of sweet mini dolls a bunch of new vintage animals. I will hopefully have time to make a few new teeny tiny goodies too.

Next weekend it is, Saturday 16th, 9 - 1 if you fancy a day out in the country!

You could visit us at the market- Glenlyon town hall, on the Daylesford Malmsbury Road- get yourself some handmade goodies, some cupcakes, some goats cheese and a few veges. Then you could head into daylesford to visit the fabulous Lark store or the quite frankly amazing Mill Markets -if you love vintage & retro and you have not been here, you really must! It's SO worth the drive! It's massive and full of amazing treasures.
Then you might be feeling a tad tired so you should get a sugar hit at the Chocolate Mill- the yummiest handmade chocolates around and in a gorgeous strawbale building (if you are into that sort of thing). Or you could check out any of the beautiful local producers of fine food listed on this page (I can highly recommend Istra Smallgoods, if you are into that sort of thing).

Then you could take a dip in the lake (we have two Daylesford and Jubilee both are great for swimming, though I think the beach at Daylesford Lake is better for kids- ask someonefor directions).

Then you might even want to stay the night because the Trentham Farmers Market is on on Sunday morning....
There is so much to do here, I'm sure you can easily fill a day or a weekend- we'd love to see you!
Okay back to the sewing while the kids are out!
