a very wintery Somers WInter Market...

So I am sure that you didn't think that this week would go by without a post about our annual Somers Winter Market. Will wintery it was with persistant showers throughout the day (of course it was sunny the day after) but that didn't deter the crowds who drove, walked, cycled and caught the bus to enjoy the fantastic food, incredible wares and fabulous entertainment that was available. 

I myself had a rather dry and comfortable position up in the homestead with a little exhibition of my work from the past 3 years where I had a birds eye view of the markets activities. If you are one of the many who I met on the day who are new to my work and this blog, welcome and thanks for stopping by. Thanks to those of you who have been here before and who came along just to say Hi and to see what I was up to, your support means the world to me. 

Hi Georgia! 

In the homestead I had beautiful background music supplied by Whisky Gypsy from out on the verandah and nearby were coffee, cakes and wine - what more could I need! 

...and of course as in previous years and other markets I was once again drawn to the amazing work of Sarah Dingwall. Together with a couple of precious items from her I picked up the most amazing green recycled blanket poncho from the crafty ladies at Things for Folk - no photos here though you'll have to keep an eye out for me in it!
