Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been designing and creating a range of lovely winter ladies wear items.   They are part of my “Quirkies” range.  Each piece is individually designed, never to be repeated and individually numbered.

A gorgeous combination of eco dyed fabrics and pure woollens, soft wool jerseys and lovely heavier weight wools.  “One off” pieces, so special that there really is only one or, if you’re lucky, one in a couple of different sizes.  You’ll have to come see these for yourself as there’s no time for a photo shoot before tomorrow.

Ballarat Heritage Weekend – Mothers’ Day gifts by goomo

Here are some fabulous suggestions for Mothers’ Day gifts:-

Obviously you would like to give Mummy something really special, that’s why something from goomo is ideal!  A hand made gift!  An Australian made gift.  I’ve been really busy this week, thinking of my Mum, and making things that would delight your Mum too…………

There’s my unbelievable hand dyed, Australian Merino fingerless mittens, you can see a pic of these in my previous post. 

How about these new fingerless mittens?  Made especially for this weekend, same gorgeous style, so lovely to wear, boiled wool, lush chocolate in colour and finished with luxurious alpaca shell crochet edging.

There’s also goomo’s famous hand dyed socks.  The traditional terry lined, Merino wool blend, are so warm and so popular.   So popular indeed that a new addition has been added to my range.  And a fresh batch has been dyed up especially for the Pop Up Collective, Ballarat Heritage Weekend Market, this weekend – 10 & 11 May 2014. Visit the Mechanics’ Institute, 117 Sturt Street, Ballarat either Saturday or Sunday. 10 am – 5 pm.
