With The Handmade Expo over for November I can now work towards making more beautiful stock for the Brisstyle Christmas market on Saturday 5th Dec. I have some wonderful vintage chenilles on hand, some delicious ones sourced from America with the dollar the way it is at the moment, it's too tempting. It does mean though that I am sourcing some really unusual, pretty and super awesome chenilles.
I will have a great display of your favourite heat packs in large and small and some other different things I have been working on. Here's a prototype, needs some tweeking but is coming along nicely!
It is an easy wear skirt from http://www.lillipillilane.blogspot.com/ and I am so appreciative as I already have one skirt so I can vouch for their comfort and deliciousness ! Thank you so much X O

IPSWICH'S BIGGEST and BEST MARKET...
I am certainly proud of this and I know all our stallholders are too, so a huge thank you to our wonderful, loyal stallholders who stay with us every month... we really appreciate it.
Now, to our customers - we had a fabulous day. We thank you for braving the heat, as it was a scorcher but we thank you for coming every month to support our local handmadies and the BEST MARKET in town! Plus, we are pretty certain you crossed a lot off your christmas list (I know I did)!
With our free entry now and forever that just puts the cherry on top!
You aren't going to want to miss the last Handmade Expo for the year on Saturday 12th December. Known as our Xmas Extravaganza you definately wont be dissapointed, and you'll be able to finish off your list !
Thank you all once again... without your support this would not be the BEST MARKET to visit once a month at the loveliest, relaxed outdoor venue in town.

The day before I received these photos of some of my clothes from Anklebiters, a new stockist of my clothes. Amazing what a professional photographer can do isn't it ? I have put them into flickr as well if you want to look at some of my other creations too.
These styles and much more will be available this Saturday at The Handmade Expo, Brisbane Rd, Bundamba at the Ipswich Turf Club along with 136 stalls of Handmade Lovliness,
Our biggest market ever, just in time for some awesome Christmas shopping !
Also available all the time at Handmade Heaven in Ipswich.
P.P.S The biggest post I have ever done !

I have recovered enough from the two day market at Gatton over the weekend to start sewing again.
Yesterday I spent the whole day cutting up vintage chenille bedspreads ( It's what I do ! ) so I could start a production line of sewing for the next Handmade Expo and the Brisstyle Christmas market.
So after a slow start I finally got into it and managed to finish 10 bathmats in preparation for markets and re stocking Handmade Heaven tomorrow.
Dont forget to go over to The Handmade Expo blog and leave a comment to increase the giveaway amount.
Doesn't matter if you cant make it to the market and you live way away, The idea is the more comments , the more dollar value the winner gets to spend at the market. It increases by one dollar for each different blogette though, but in the spirit of blogging and handmadewomanship ( that must be a word, if not I am copywriting it ! ) wouldn't you want everyone to leave a comment on the chance it could be YOU winning the loot ! ( and sending us broke maybe ! Ha Ha )
While you are over there you might find an interesting looking blog you'd like to take a look at too !
