My own fabric design, slow stitching and a cardi for Hazel

Lately I've been stopping to do a little more slow stitching. I usually machine stitch the eyes and cheeks onto my dolls, but the other day when I decided I needed to make a pink linen Hazel, in order to showcase the pink linen supply kits, I decided to sit down and enjoy the relaxing pace of hand-stitching. 

Not only did was it a peaceful task, it gave me time to reflect on what kind of character this pink Hazel would be. While stitching, I decided she would have a headwrap instead of the bonnet that features in the pattern, and that her personality would be a little out there.

So here she is, Hazel's short(er) statured sister. 
I haven't come up with a name for her yet, she is currently affectionately known as 'Pink Hazel'

Tips On Having A Market Stall

It's been a little while since I've posted, as a few things have kept me quite busy so the blog has taken a back seat. It's not possible to get everything done all the time, and while I have a few projects I want to blog about, I know that it's silly to drive myself crazy trying to do too much. I've found in the past when I have done it all I don't get to stop and smell the roses. And if there is one thing I hope to achieve in 2017, it is taking things a little more slowly and enjoying the journey and process of things.

One of the things that has occupied a fair bit of my time in late February and early March, was preparing to hold a stall at the Mareeba Markets, with Sarah from Say! Little Hen. It took a lot of preparation time, as neither of us has been to the markets since 2013/14, so there was a lot to sort, label and organise.
