pinnochio for elisabeth and some images from my market stall yesterday






....whenever someone expresses an interest in something on my stall or that I have made it adds magic to said object and if its part of my mass clearing out of images campaign such as vintage patterns!.....well, just one more photo and I let the person snatch it back :)eg rabbit,duck and ah hummmmmm penguin pattern (now going to be given as a birthday present) , how cute, ....how sad am I !
The drawing is one from a while ago , but the sweetest girl is planning on saving up for it ...silly ass that I am, I;d nearly give it to her ....but I will hold my nerve :) She said that she can see icelandic imagery in it , which made me very interested as I am not sure what generated that drawing.
That is what I MOST love about making images (and finding random images for that matter)........so often they do not belong to us , but from a world much larger and more wonderful than we can ever imagine , if we stay attentive and present to its murmerings , we MIGHT just manage to catch a ride.
Glad to think that the set of 1982 vintage dress making patterns went to a lovely young woman who is attending a dressmaking course at fashion college....she will most certainly be THE envy of her classmates.
On friday I was in the charity shop from hell...a cross lady runs it , everything is more expensive than the shops and well , I still like to go in , just in case. .....this wonderful image of needlepoint is from a book in the shop.
The rest of the book was a bit tweeky (not great )...but you know me and deers :)
