This morning, my alien...

In strange and
eerie light
the
creature
installed
its impenetrable
fortress

beckoned
with
a floppy tentacle


And Spoke
Universal
Words
of the Cosmos

'We want crackers'


Then,
-energized-,
it sculpted
'unearthly long-ears'
in
crimson
spacepods.





Apart from establishing intergalactic communications, I've been doing a bit of the usual. K and I had a Craftwerk-market day (well only short afternoon for me really) and it was all pretty successful. It was combined with a solid quality art-event and some catchy music-performances. My uber-favorites were the duo 'Too many cats' with their world-hits (just you wait and see now) 'Art bus' and 'Gallery girl'... Haha of course I know these guys, Ian and Robert, who used to work with Gabriel in Auckland's (public) city art gallery (a deep deep source of darkest inspiration, apparently). 't Was coohool and I had fuhun.
Here are a few things I made for the market, that found new homes :

simple tote in Notari Sweetpea

tree-pinnies
Yellow - goes with a groovy uncle to Australia
White - for little Fern who fitted on site and was just peachy sweet

And here are a few things that found their way into my home :


thrift (but o what a thrift) : most beautiful cutting-board ever






Cushion covers, hand-printed by Katie (Smitten design),
traditionally I 'invest' a bit of my market-profits in fellow crafters' market-stuff,
I was very pleased to find these appealing prints of Katie's.



These fun hotplates were also made by Katie



a little beauty : porcelain bangle cut from miscellaneous teacup
by Linsay (Rekindle)




Cheerio friends
