The pointy end

The next few weeks are full and busy with my favourite markets all lined up. 
Just in time to think about some new things for this little turn towards Autumnal weather.
This Saturday you'll find me back in Seddon at the Maribyrnong Makers Market.
I love this market, you will too!

And then on Sunday, I'll be back in Geelong for Piccadilly Market.
Another favourite, in a lovely venue.
And I'm going to be neighbours with my very good friend Crayon Chick.
That'll be fun!

After that comes Easter here at home in Apollo Bay.
I've been working on lots of new things, including some gorgeous heavy and soft jumbo cord skirts.
Perfect for cooler days (at last!).

We're having a heatwave

Today marks the 10th day in a row over 30c. And it's Autumn!
Our home is a fibro beach shack built around about 1970, which basically means it's as hot inside as it is out.
It's not too bad really.
I've got a fan to stir the air, my workroom is downstairs in the relative cool, and I've got some of the nicest beaches in the state right at my doorstep.
I've been bunking off every afternoon for a swim, the best way to cool down!
I'm reminding myself that Winters are long and cold and wet down here on the coast, and once this weather does turn, it'll be a long time before the next swim.
Still, I am kind of looking forward to giving a new shirt an outing!
