What a week this has been - after a busy week last week as well! I have been sewing madly as nearly all my souvenirs sold at the Botanic Gardens last weekend and we needed more for a stall at the Palm & Cycad Fete today! Then I managed to do something to my knee on Tuesday so that I not only could not walk, it was agonising even to move my leg in any direction - and this was less than an hour before I was due for another injection in my eye! Thank goodness for my mother's walking stick to use as a crutch with Bill on the other side. We made it for the injection, then off to the chiropractor, three times in 24 hours and he had me walking again. I hope it never returns.
I had fun making the handmade felt brooches, not sure if they will sell or not, but worth a try for something different.
Glasses cases are always popular and I love the way you can make the finished article look completely different even when you start with exactly the same base. The top one has a green chiffon scarf over it, the bottom one a red.
I am trying out some sunshade too, which people seemed to like this morning.
And this is what we were setting up for this morning - I was out there by 5.45am, in the dark and very cold! Winter has come in with a bang here, I realise it is not cold to the southerners, but 8 degrees is definitely cold to us in the tropics - especially when coupled with a very sneaky breeze.
This is a huge affair and several thousand people come to purchas all the goodies on offer - especially some beautiful bromeliads. My knee was still too sore to go walking far, but the stall next to us had some lovely lemons and limes so I have a supply to make some marmalade - more busy times ahead!
