Frosty outside but it's warm and toasty on the inside.....

Brrrrrr, it was cold in Canberra on Sunday, but the Mathilda's Market at the  Federation Ballroom at the Hyatt Hotel  was warm and toasty. There were lots of beautiful products on display. Sunday morning in Canberra was a frosty -3 degrees, but the ballroom was warm and toasty, causing all the Canberrians who visited  to peel off their coats, hats and mittens.

Corrie from RetroMummy was there with her gorgeous crochet hats, and fine frocks all made from the cutest coloured fabrics. We met Corrie at our first Canberra Mathildas in February. There is a picture of her 'hat tree' exploding in the finest crochet hats. 

Anastasia from Cheeky Textiles had her display of wall art, I loved the robin red breast screen printed artwork. Helen from Ensparkle and her personalised ceramics and they look even better in real life... The brooches are the perfect gift or even one for your winter coat. 

Sarah from Gifts Created have the cutest little birds in a cage that you've ever seen! Can't wait to get back to Mathilda's and get one for the girls room. And Justine from Baldi Bear Art with her beautiful illustrations and custom portraits, this is one clever Mama! Justine's daughter was helping out on Sunday and she even has her own portrait on display.. I did a double take when I saw the  pretty image and then the real thing! 

Koolaman is a sheep and wheat station, we grow wheat and we also grow sheep for meat and wool. I especially  love seeing wool made into beautiful pieces of clothing and these stylish, yet simple childrens vests from Katherine at Little Blue Children's clothing are the perfect thing for winter.

Look out for 
Michelle from Poppy, Bean and Bloss and her handmade toys and more was there. It's school holiday time and she has the perfect craft activity to keep the kids entertained...

Another appearance at the Canberra Mathilda's Market, and we're constantly amazed by the beautiful historical building of the Canberra Hyatt. The Market operates in the Federation Ballroom and is an absolute delight to  visit and exhibit.  We can recommend the delicious hot chocolates from the Hyatt too, worth the eight hour drive..
