recently...


...back to hot, hot summer temperatures - although a lot of the nights have still been cool, which makes it a little easier to deal with. Early morning is pretty much the only safe time to venture out...

...most of my month was taken up by being selected as part of the jury pool for the month. While it didn't mean being on an actual jury all the time (I was selected - it's done by ballot - twice), it did involve lots of drives to & from Pt Augusta (about 240km round trip). So it was challenging (being responsible for deciding a verdict - or 1/12th responsible I suppose - is kinda scary) & tiring, but I do feel quite satisfied about doing my civic duty...


...spent a very warm Saturday at the Handmade with Love market (& decided it was just to hot to for Wirrabara Producer's market the next week)...

...finished (most) of my batch of bronze + some of the copper pieces I made late last year...

...been working on a mandala/zentangle piece - it's nearly finished... 1 | 2 | 3 ...


...it hasn't really been baking weather, but I did bake a batch of peach muffins the other day...

...took a whole bunch of photos to start uploading some new listings to etsy, for the first time is far too long...

...shared some photos from our other family christmas-time outing & a few more from my trip.

flinders street market | handmade with love


We had a lovely time at the Flinders Street Market on Saturday. The theme for the day was 'Handmade with Love', celebrating the market being around for a year & also the fact that Valentine's Day is almost upon us.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't particularly kind to us, diving head-first back into hot, summery temperatures - rather a shock after all the mild weather we've been having. It made things a bit slow (including us!, hence not many photos), but as always we met some lovely people & some of our goods found new homes...
