The Shed........

Hi ya
Last night I did my first night market....
The atmosphere was fantastic..

Not a lot of people out though because it was too cold...
Next month it will be from 2-6 which for winter I think is better.

Today the winter sun is bright.
I have tidied up the farm gate to attract passing traffic as the Dairy is back off the road ..

A change is always good.

Today we have cleaned out the shed at the back of the dairy

Taking a break it's hard work moving all this gear.
                                          Poor Bruce he has done most of the work for me.

Looking forward to showing you what we have done.
Mind you any thing will be better as it was so full of gear you 
just couldn't move in there, never mind show people stuff.

Enjoy your week end, we will be back at it tomorrow...

See Ya

Market Day

This weekend saw us at the Ipswich Handmade markets.
The weather was perfect and sunny.

Lots of great stalls this month
and lots of people about.

See Blue dog sitting there minding the stall for me.

Each month is different, this time I sold lots of wall hangers and
scarves and a shawl but no candles. Hahaa last month I sold heaps of candles.
This is what I love you never know what is going to sell so I try to take a little of everything.

I hope you enjoyed your week end

Supplying Trap Art Yarn..........

Welcome to a new week here at 
The Old Dairy.

We have busy around here making lots of melts. At the moment
everyone wants them and I am making them weekly.

This photo was taken last month at the Ipswich Handmade Markets.
I will be there again this Saturday from 8-2pm.

I am pleased to announce that I am now supplying the wonderful 
Trap Art Yarn.
Trap art is a Spanish brand and product that is made with high quality
recycled textiles. You can use this yarn to crochet or knit by using the larger size 10-15ml 
needles or hook..I am using a 10 crochet hook but others here are using a 15.


This mat I am using the 10....I love the bright bold colours of this yarn.
Above is a sample of what I have in stock.

With the cold weather here we have been also making beanies. This one is made from Merino wool, I love all the colours in it. I am going to make a shawl from this as well.

The poncho below has felted embellishments front and back, it is
a amazing piece and is for sale for $60
The scarf is hand spined silk and mohair and is $40
They are both one off classic pieces

These pieces are made by
the very talented Maureen Winser a local artist and also my Mum.
Want a chance to meet Maureen and see more of her
work? Well she is looking after 
The Old Dairy for me on Saturday while I'm doing the Ipswich market.

Mum is not the only artist in the family,
next week I will introduce you to my Dad and show case some of his amazing work.

Until then 
Have a great week

1950s Furniture....

Hi All
Very busy at the moment sorting out furniture.
I just want to keep all the pieces myself hahaha like this 1950s side board.

I have picked up some amazing pieces this week and can''t wait to 
get in and restore them. I love the 3 seater 1950s lounge we got.
Every seat is a recliner....

The old wardrobe that is perfect as is just needs a good clean.

And so much more duchesses, single beds chairs
Yep I have a bit of work in front of me...

Enjoy your long week end this weekend
