Well, it has been long enough. So much has been happening!
Here, my friends, is a little photographic rundown of the big Crafternoon that we had before the North Melbourne Market. It was extremely productive, so much fun was had consuming various foods, crafting up a storm, planning and dreaming about the future. Such a great way to spend a long weekend!!
This is roughly everything I need to be creative away from home. Stacks of paper, the material for the tote bags I hand illustrated, watercolours, some crochet (just in case i get a spare moment), my Moleskine and the usual suspects. Oh! plus a gluten-free brownie (for kicks!).
Crafternoon in progress. Josie drew up all the letters and made bunting for the stall (very impressive!!). I drew up some of the little sketches from my sketchbook and developed them until I was happy, then I drew them onto the calico. It was totes fun. (We had so many silly tote puns all weekend). Katy crocheted up a storm, making apples and pot holders and scarfs galore.
Food, is so important!
Top: I popped over to Sushi Burger for some lunch. I was really hungry and wanted something sushi-fied. This little guy was around the $7 mark (I think!) He had chili sauce, fresh salmon, lettuce and kewpie mayonaise, sandwiched between sushi rice and nori. Oh man, was it ever fresh and super tasty.
In the middle: My Adzuki Bean Brownie. I think this version was the best that I have made to date. It was intensely chocolatey and a bit sweeter than I usually make it. The whole thing was gone by Monday afternoon.
Bottom: Josie and Sam made the most spectacular Chili-bean pot pie. Man, I wish I could eat this again, it was like a Shepherds Pie had a Mexican love affair. I finished the whole serve and felt so blissfully content for the rest of the evening.
Late night Apple Cart zine orders being filled. We hand drew on every single envelope, so no two were the same. I did these little teacup people. It was lots of fun!
There are so many more photos to share but I need to upgrade my Flickr account pretty badly. And! I really want to get onto showing you guys the finished product!! We were so proud of our hard work at the end of the day.
It is so much fun working/being creative with your friends and sharing delicious food.
