Hop to it - a giveaway.

If you saw a picture of my booth at Spring market you would have recognised the beautiful quilt made for me by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts. I always get so many great comments about her quilt at market and so many people know instantly that it is hers.
I am eternally grateful that Rita finds time to work with me.

The stuff that happened before the other stuff

While we were in Salt lake City , we went to Moab. I geographically useless so I can't tell you if we went North or South or into outer space. We went with my awesome friend Pinksuede shoe and her daughter and we truly had a wonderful time.
The scenery was like nothing I have ever experienced. My brain had a hard time getting around the vastness of it all.
 See the car !!!

I kept thinking of just about every cowboy movie I ever saw as a kid.

This is my favourite. It is all John Wayne on horseback in the front and Julie Andrews and Sound of Music in the background.


The colours in the rock and the sand were unbelievable.


We were able to stay for two days and apart from the Australians (who should know better) getting ridiculously sun burnt, we loved every minute of it.

I could explode this blog with photos but instead I will make a folder over on Pinterest  if you want to have a look. 
Right now, with snow in Ballarat and scarves and beanies and coats these photos feel like half a world away - which I guess they are.

Possession !


I know that life is not about the acquiring of stuffs.


I know stuffs do not make people happy.


This piece of stuff has just arrived on my doorstep


and I can't stop smiling !

Salt Lake City

I know , I know, lets just pretend this is a timely blog post.
These kinds of posts are really little diary entries for me, snippets of what happened.
Temple Square

Loads and loads of sculpture in Salt Lake City, gorgeous gardens and fountains everywhere!!!

Everywhere you look there are these beautiful 'Sound of Music' mountains in the background. I wonder if people stop noticing them after a while? They were amazing.

Capitol Building- totally stunning.

Market 3: all the pretty

(Oops. this post has been sitting in my drafts since the day after the previous post- consider the ball well and truly dropped at this end folks. )

Once again I apologise for the lack of links. Me and the ipad and the blogsy do not agree on the need for links in blog posts apparently.

There is just so much to see at market, and I am sure I missed a lot of stuff. I have sooooo many photos I should make a pinterest board or something. (Says the woman who can't manage a blog post )
In real life, I am home and back at work and this seems like a very loooong time ago.
