About this blog
A blog about the meanderings of a craft designer and hand maker living in a beautiful island at the end of the earth....I'm a weaver addicted to her little Ashford Knitters Loom, a crocheter, knitter, painter, gardener and grandma. Rowena lives in Tasmania - a world apart, not a world away!

Made it back to Meskills in Kyneton. So sad that the spinning mill is now closed and the machinery disbanded. But they still have some hanks of natural corriedale 30 micron semi-worsted for sale, so came home with another kilo. Reckon that will be it tho. The people who have "Wolf at the Door" a marvellous gallery and design business supporting handmade in Hepburn Spa, have leased the building and are to move in around October I think.

Yep. Esty Shop "on vacation" and this blog will be quiet for a week while I fly off to Marvellous Malmsbury in country Victoria to do a spot of domestic duties for a week. Really looking forward to the rest and to get away for a change of pace as I have been sooo sooo busy for the last 12 weeks it seems.
...also, as of today, I don't have to go back to the kitchen! Chucked it in and opted to go back to the relative quiet of the office. Looking forward to that change of pace too! Start new job on 19th May : auspicious date - my daughter's birthday ...hope it's a good sign.
See you in a week's time. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The shoes are beautiful.......Janellish makes house shoes and other gorgeous things
I'm blown away by the success of my stall at Niche. It was absolutely fabulous. Most of my bling scarves went to new homes - thanks to everyone who came by to buy or chat or both. I met some amazing people and was encouraged by the comments on my work. It's wonderful to pack up a scarf, pop it in the pretty bag and hand it over to the new owner! I just love seeing the efforts I make to create something unique and to me, exciting, being carried off by a pleased purchaser!
One of the most important things about marketing is being able to talk to everyone and find out what they like and what they are looking for.
