Singapore Fling

Lyssy May has just had a little adventure to Singapore for a few days (hence the recent blog neglect). I will post about some of the lovely highlights soon (i.e. I returned with heavy suitcase and light purse!) but there is no topping the experience of breakfast with the orangutans at the Singapore Zoo. I could have stayed for lunch and dinner if only to spend more time with these amazing animals which are 'free ranging' so as you walk through their area of the park they are sitting in the trees right above you. Note the little baby one which won everyone's hearts - who could blame me for wanting to bring one home!?

Open Studio this Sunday

This Sunday (23/5) the Ironsiders are opening their studios to the public from 12 to 3. If you are in Melbourne it would be great to see you there - pop by for a drink and a browse. I will have some materials for sale as well as Lyssy May designs available for purchase if you'd like to come and check out Studio 1. The number of studios has grown since the last open day as well so there are lots more talented people to meet - see you there!

Modish Market

Can it already be a week since I was packing up to go to the first Modish Market? Here is a quick snap of some of the Lyssy May display. It was so lovely to meet fellow stallholders and the many locals who were quick to snap up the recycled map wallets of their suburb - I will know to make more next time! Despite the day starting with a flat car battery and a mad dash to put everything in a cab to make it to set up on time the day turned out to be a special one. I do love a good craft market.

Market Day in Malvern this Saturday

It is 7 years ago this weekend that Lyssy May was launched at my parents house in Brisbane. Here is a snapshot of the bags on display that day - if you own any of these they are truly vintage LM! Fast forward to 2010 and this Saturday I will be at the Modish Creators Market, Malvern Town Hall 9 AM to 3 PM (cnr High St and Glenferrie Road). Be sure to stop and say hi if you are there and I can show you how I now have more than one style of pattern in my designs!
