That year went quickly! Love your markets 'display' and wondering what is on the front of the little t-shirts. The grin accompanying those easter eggs says it all, lol. Off to see what Kristy is offering as you've piqued my interest :).

I'm sure your market stall will be a success. I'd definitely visit it if I could :)
Congrats on your 1st blogiversary!

Those fat quarters (I'm assuming) of fabric on your market table look delicious! Your cushion swap partner is very lucky.

Happy blogiversary Melissa! I was just wondering where you'd got to and now I know! You've been so busy! It all looks scrumptious! I'm about to cut into some of my Flower Sugar but I'm so scared! I'm enjoying stroking it and looking at it so much! Maybe next week then! xxx

How exciting for you.. A market stall!

Sarah said...

Oooohhh, you're from Palmerston (or maybe Darwin)? Cool! I'm a Brisbane girl myself, born and bred, but I visited Darwin for the first time last year and LOVED it! Unfortunately I was only there for three nights (it was a work thing), so I didn't get much of a chance to look around the area, but I did get to go to another market on the Beach at night on a weeknight. It was fantastic. I love the Asian feel of the place. Anyway, sorry, very long comment! Your doll quilt for the swap is lovely by the way! Cheers, Sarah

Gosh just catching up, and your garden makes me so happy. Getting really cold here, and I wish it was only 'dry season' cold, but no, it's more.
Love to see how your vege patch goes and what you produce! My Mum has lemongrass that she has to give regular crew cuts; and it keeps on providing over and over.

PS - BIG congrats to you on your blog anniversary!

I'm a bit behind on reading - how did it go @ the market?
