To market, to market

I'm off to the Ivanhoe Maker's Market this weekend.  Saturday that is.  The market recently relocated to the Livingstone Community Centre in Ivanhoe and it's a wonderful new location. There are lots of lovely stall holders with food, flowers, jewellery, bags, knitted goods, paper products and more.  Come for a visit, have a mosey around and remember Christmas is just around the corner and you may just find that unique gift you need to make it extra special this year!

On a finishing run

It's been a busy weekend over here.
Two knitted projects got all finished up - one a long term, large project which I will be sending off to it's new home on Monday.

And the other a short term small project, a pair of socks for my Father-in-Law.

One quilt was sewn together apart from the binding. A trip to Sp*tlight or my favourite, GJ's, is required to find something appropriate, probably a navy or a forest green.  That is a job for Monday as well.

And four Quilt-as-you-go blocks were made and all packaged up to be sent out tomorrow to Jan Mac who makes them into quilts and donates them to various charities.  This has been on my list of things to do since January so it's nice to cross that one off.

Now it's time to pack up all the boxes and crates and hide away all my fabric again.

All in all a great weekend!
