Parcels in the post

As those of you who sew will know, part of the fun is admiring gorgeous fabrics. I was very excited to receive not one, but three, parcels in the mail last week, all bursting at the seams with delicious new fabric!

Of course, I had to snap some photos of them before I washed them all and started cutting them up. These bright and colourful prints are destined to be summer tops, skirts and dresses, and will be available (assuming the teething Miss Goosey cooperates with her mummy's plans!) at the September Hall markets.

August at Hall Markets

Flib and I had another lovely day at Hall Markets on the weekend.... although it was a tad chilly! We are looking forward to the weather (hopefully) warming up a bit in September.

We are also looking to expand our horizons, and perhaps try some other markets (as well as continuing to do Hall each month). Any suggestions for possible markets are welcome.

I've started work on my summer range. It feels a bit strange to be sewing up summery tops, skirts and shorts in this weather, but spring really is just around the corner. Miss Goosey and The Gander are both scoring well as I test my patterns out by making clothes for them.

I'll post some shots of my new fabrics over the coming days. But until then, for those of you who haven't yet visited us at Hall, here's a few pictures of the stall:
