Some prolonged blog absences around here! I've been meaning to write and say how awesome everyone's responses to my last post were. Especially for a post without pictures (wow, people actually read them!). Anyway I'm glad to hear it resonated with so many folk :)
I've been pretty crazy busy this week, preparing for the Melbourne Design Market THIS SUNDAY. Please come and say hello if you're about. I'll be manning the Bamakko stall with the lovely and talented Tim Growcott (if only he had a website! you can see some of his textiles here).
Here's a quick preview of what I've been working on for the market:
Lamps lamps and more lamps!!
Mix packs. With packaging revised YET AGAIN.
Clutch purses with mix-and-match router cut plywood clasps! Yay!! So good to see these finally come to life :)
There'll also be plenty of cushions which are being sewn as we speak.
I found time to do some non-work related things too. Like:
- playing with my niece and nephew who visited for a week from the States
- building this yellow lego castle with my family using instructions I finally found on the internet (ahhh, childhood moments revisited)
- Going to Nova to watch the movie Happy Go Lucky. A much needed light hearted break.
More big exciting news to come... but that will have to wait till another day :)
