a market, a festival, a life

Wow, everything moves really fast. I didn't realise how busy I had been with the fringe until I noticed how little beading I had done, or how messing the house was! But all is good, the fringe has been a wonderful success for everyone I know who has been involved.
So, as life keeps on moving on, so do I. I will be joining my good friend Hellena Post with a stall and the Willunga Waldorf School Autumn Fair on Saturday the 4th of April, 10-4. Please come by and say 'hi' if you're in the area, it should be a lovely day!
And I will be joining my partner-in-crime in Canberra for the National Folk Festival. He will be drumming for the members of Saffron Tribal Belly Dance and it promises to be quite an event. I am hoping to make myself useful, helping with costumes and the 'rocking of turbans'. They are definitely not as easy as the look!
And I hope to post some photo's of my newest beading work in a few days. Bug me if I don't, ok?

Busy, busy... busy,busy!

It has been a long time between posts but this post should make up for it! On Saturday a few friends and I hosted a fashion parade, with more than a few differences called Tribal Fibres: a percussive catwalk. The models were tribal belly dancers from the South Australian tribal belly dance community. The Clothing was work by Hellena Post - hand dyed, spun and crocheted creations,
and work by the Lizard Queen - one of a kind clothing and wings made from second hand and recycled fabric and clothing,and my jewellery. And we had live musicians consisting of Grasshopper with Dylan and Kira playing flutes and Rowan on Saxophone. We had a splendid night with lots of sales, a packed house, lovely food and so much fun! Thank you everyone who contributed to making this night special.

You can find many more photo's of the event at the Tribal Fibres facebook page.

And tonight I will be having a stall at the Free Fringe Family Frivolities event at the Hahndorf Academy, from 6:30 till 9 pm. I hope to see you there as it will be quite an event - stalls, food, music!
