It's official. Winter has arrived down under. But I'm not complaining. Looking out of the window, I am greeted this morning by blue skies and a determined sunshine. Don't get me wrong, it's not warm, by any stretch of the imagination. But at least it's bright. And I must admit, I do quite like clear frosty weather. It's refreshing; it keeps the head clear.
As another mark that winter is upon us, the Winter Encraftment Market was hosted last weekend. Other than the regular Sunday market at Riccarton race-course which has a few handmade stalls dotted around, this was the first craft market I've attended since being here and I was pretty excited due to the huge range of talent I'd found through Felt and Facebook. I bought a lovely array of clay beads and charms from madebyme and hope to attend one of their jewellery classes this month to turn my purchases into something pretty.
