a babble of babushka's



I'm not really sure what you call a group of babushka's, but I can sort of imagine these little ladies chattering away in a group like a bunch of Mum's outside school at pick up time. I don't think there really is a word for a group of babushka's, is there? Anyway, this little bunch is destined for a market in Warrnambool in a bit over a month. I know I've blogged about it already, but just in case you don't know about it and you're from the area go and check it out, I think it's gonna be swell.

The market has been the perfect inspiration for me, I'm churning out new designs and new softies all over the place. I designed these little misses to cater for those not willing to spend toooo much. I know some would still consider them maybe a bit exy (I'm planning on selling them for $25) but hey I don't think I really need to justify the time, fabric and love put into every one of these. It is a handmade stall after all, so I'm hoping the crowd it attracts are appreciative of original handmade designs.

So, as I was saying before the mini rant, I'm churning out new designs all over the place. In fact I'm just about to draft up another! I'm planning on a little one-eyed monster. Tully has been singing the purple people eater song, and whilst the little dude I have in my head won't be wearing short shorts, he will have ummmm one eye!

Once the market is over and I drag home the many softies that haven't sold, I will be listing them over on a new store over at made it. Tikki has closed down her ozebaby store where I have been fortunate to sell stuff for the last few years and for which I am very grateful (thanks tik). You can still purchase tik's knitting patterns over at Ravelry and from my market stall (she may even pop a few of her milo vests on there too!)and I hear she will be opening up a new store some time soonish;) But I have to admit I'm a little bit excited about opening my own store and it seems perfect to launch with lots of stock, so I back to work churning out pixies, polly dolly's, aliens, babushka's and little one eyed monsters and who knows, maybe even painting a tee or two!
