Completely Niched and a Giveaway

Yes it is over, the big Niche Fest is done. And a wonderful Market it was.

Loads of new buttons. I sold the art quilt you can see on the left side of the picture.

Now it is all powers go till the Tasmanian Craft Fair at the end of October. Except of course for my two week trip to Melbourne coming up where I get to do a fabulous Fibre Forum in Geelong. No less than a wonderful Masterclass with Sandy Webster which I am so looking forward to. I will also be at the Makers Market at the Abbootsford Convent on September 19th and of course at the Geelong Bazaar Saturday October 2nd. But before all that happens I will take a small sidestep to the Eastside Market next sunday for all you Hobartians.
And artworks. I sold an encaustic piece as well.
And as a celabration of the 30 followers I now have I think it is time to do a Giveaway.

So this little painting will wing its way to someone who leaves a comment. I will do the draw next sunday, no I won't, it will have to be monday. Who knows a few buttons and some fabric might find there way into the package as well.

I think I might be going to the Abbotsford Market with a couple of girlfriends when I get home! I will keep an eye out for you.
Thanks for your comment...I dont have enough fabric with me (and cant find a thrift shop!!!) so I am going to fossick through my sons clothes and see if there is anything that needs "throwing out" that I could dye.
Would love to be included in your give away!

It was great enlarging all the photos to inspect all your wares in the baskets etc. I definitely would have gravitated to your table and the quilt looks beautiful. I would also love to be included in the giveaway!
