Market Day

Yeah, we got to the market on Saturday.  It was very touch and go, as rain had been predicted.  Woke up at 4 am, yes it was very early.  Espeically after a week of early mornings.  Merilee picked me up at 5.20, at the front of property and we drove on to meet Michelle, she lives about 10 minutes (as Merilee drives very fast) down the road, and yes she is my neighbour.  We live a fair distance apart out here.  Off we went to Mitchell for the Fire and River Festival.  Mitchell is approximately 120 km from my frontage, so it took us about 1 hour to get there, they wanted a 7am set up.  It was so cold, Mitchell is in a little bit of a hollow and it gets so cold.  We had our coats on all day.  Despite the constant fear of rain. 

The day was a great one.  We had a great response to our kits.  Which was great we were starting to get a little worried that what we thought were a good idea, wasn't what anyone else thought.  Yes we all  have that fear.  I also had a great response to my little felt decorations and felt hairclips, which really made my day.  Met some great new people and made some new friends.  Also met a lovely lady who is addicted to wool as I am, she spins and does a little felting.  It was so good to find someone else out around here with similar interests.  Anyway finished at 1.00 and it just started to spit as we left.

Now to start getting ready for the craft day we are having next week for a group of local ladies. 

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
