I have seen so many fantastic blogs in recent times I have really been inspired and I think one of my things to do in 2009 is to be a better blogger.
See you at the Handmade Expo at the Jondaryan Woolsheds on Australia Day.
There will be over 50 stalls of gorgeous handmade only goodies.
The entry fee has been reduced to $2 per person for the day and promises to be a great family day out.
All the usual Aussie day activities, ceremonies, kids games, aussie tucker etc will be there for you and your family to enjoy.
Hope to see you there!

This was the view from the table at breakfast in Coffs Harbour, it was very hard to come home from this. It was such a beautiful spot and the wedding was perfect.

I've been playing around with some left overs and made some luggage tags, I've listed them on Etsy so hopefully they wont all go before the next market so you can see them, They are funky! You will be able to spot your luggage on the carousel a mile away!
I'M PLAYING AROUND WITH SOME DIFFERENT IDEAS FOR CUSHIONS TOO (WELL DIFFERENT FOR ME!) AND I LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING TWO THAT MATCH, IN A CONTRASTING SORT OF A WAY...WHAT DO YOU THINK? WELL I MIGHT GIVE THESE A GO ON MADEIT.COM.AU AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS....
We have been busy organising our Xmas Xtravaganza Xpo (the Handmade Expo) on Dec 13th in Ipswich, have some really big lucky door prizes to draw every hour and some firemen selling their calenders, maybe i have mentioned this before! There will be lots of fancily dressed stalls and stallholders for a competition we have for them and by then we'll be well and truely on our way to Christmas.
Well have to go and pack now as Jeff and I are off to Coffs Harbour for 3 nights for a wedding and some R&R, (my leave app. all signed)

This was taken at a pit stop on the way back from Glen Innes today, I cant believe after all these years of travelling along the New England Highway I dont think I've ever seen this weather rock before! We went to Glen Innes for Jeffs brothers 50th on Sat night. We had a lovely time. We stayed in the most fantastic B&B called Tudor House, it's on the highway and was fantasticly comfortable and gorgeously old world, just our style....we want one!

Nearly ready for The Handmade Expo, heat packs were the almost last thing to do, see the purple and white chenille squares? Half way through customer ordered cushions. They're so snuggly too, I'll have to think about some for myself and maybe the grandbabes too!

Managed to find a couple of hours to finished my old fav. the bubbachenille version with a bow, there's so much room in this and has a pocket inside for your phone or a lippy! Now I'm right to start on the hats,bright pants and new heatpacks in those fantastic colours. They are all chopped up and ready to sew. I have a fairly empty week ahead at this stage (famous last words!) so I hope to achieve a lot as the following week is The Handmade Expo again on the 18th October. Starting to work on The Handmade Expo for Goondiwindi in April too, so there is never a dull moment!
