Skirts now made in sizes 1 through to 4. They are $18, All the pants are $20 and are made in sizes 0 through to 4.
Next we have the mid to hot pinks, ever popular and some new very pale shabby lemon and pale citrus green, just to die for girls !
Now you've got your ever popular aquas and other blues and some new mauves and pinky purplies...
The old faves are still with us, with a seemingly endless supply of oranges and browns and some other shades of green.
And last but not least....the other colours, creams and beiges, caramels and red ( mainly save for xmas but it's a stray! )
Plenty to chose from anyway ! There are also the famous heat packs in nearly all these colours and we are needing those right now here in sunny Queensland, I can tell you !
So pop by and say hi at The Handmade Expo this Saturday or if you need something I've got, then just leave a comment! If you cant get to us on Saturday you can always pop in and say hi to Liesa at Handmade Heaven, I have put a selection of goodies in there as well.
Off to pack these things now !

There hasn't been an Expo in Ipswich since March so everyone is chomping at the bit to get there, customers and stallholders alike. It's sure to be like the first one we held when we were over run with people. Not only will many many locals support us but there will also be 3 coaches full of eager shoppers coming from the other side of Brisbane on Cross Country Tours. This is a bit of a coo for us and we are excited! Originally there was to be one coach and suddenly there are three! Amazing !
If you live in South East Queensland, dont be shy :) and if you come, make sure you intro yourself to us!
Saturday 27th June, Ipswich Show grounds, Warwick Rd, Exhibitors Pavilion
8 am - 2 pm, Entry $2 Adults, Children Free
M.S will be holding a BBQ and we have a fantasic Coffee Van.
There will be over 90 Stalls of Handmade goods.
Only a couple of stallholders have eftpos, so bring cash!
And....I'll be there ! Just inside the door, if you need a heat pack, get in early, in this weather they sell really quickly.
On a different subject, I wanted to tell you about Mickys new blog. She only started on the weekend after much persuasion and she is calling her new blog Handmadies. She is going to be blogging about her handmade finds and I'm sure it will explode into the biggest thing ever !! Why not pop over and show her what you do, intro yourself and let her discover your world a bit more closely. Tell her where you found her too cos she loves stuff like that !

I will be forever grateful that I was able to give up work to follow my dream.
I have tried to drink only "real" coffee but I get lazy and make instant.
I have a sweet tooth for anything sweet, I dont care what it is!
My sewing machine is a Janome
I am so proud of my two daughters and their babies.
First I won a hand knitted scarf on the sew mama sew giveaway from The Butterfly Mom , I dont have a pic unfortunately as my lovely daughter decided she wanted it, needed it more than me, but it was nice and chunky and warm and beautifully knitted by Jill in Los Angeles, Thanks again Jill.
Secondly I won green bag number 5142 from the green bag lady in the US also, the number representing how many bags her and her team have given away to try and reduce plastic bags, really interesting reading her story too, Thanks green bag lady!
And last but certainly not least, I won a gorgeous giveaway from Michelle at Pedrosprout in Brisbane, The most delightful little tote, some coasters and a cute little pincushion, Love your work Michelle ! Michelle is also opening a shop soon, so go and check her out... Thanks Michelle, Hope to see you soon.

It must be good Karma from a couple of posts ago.
I went to the dreaded habby store that opened a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by the service, that was yesterday but this morning before I left I couldn't drive by Bargain Box Fabrics without calling in. All their patchwork fabrics are $12 a metre or less and I am a real sucker, so I picked up a few just in case I need them !..
These are great for the trim around the bottom of pants, stars and spots, great for boys stuff !
Dont forget my Giveaway, I will draw on Sunday night, It's a painless and rewarding thing to watch the video clip on my previous post, Trust me, you'll thank me for it ! And I have been collecting some lovely little items as part of the giveaway !

I'll make up a collection of goodies for the winner, including some chenille to play with and you can rest assure everything will be handmade ! Good luck and I cant wait to read your comments ! !
I loved this clip sooo much, there were tears !

Ive been cutting out nearly all day...it's so time consuming but the end result, ENORMOUS !
I went from this
to this in no time flat...(They are the "piles" I headed this post with ! ha ha )
I have two weeks until my super busy time starts, so I really want to be ready for it ! PLUS I have my things at Handmade Heaven and that opens on Monday, I think I am going to have to work on keeping my space there stocked too as I have already had sales and it's not even open yet !
It's freezing here in Toowoomba today, perfect weather for curling up in a ball, watching a movie or doing some hand sewing, tell me I'm dreaming, who gets to do that ?
How do you like my new Blog ? This is my 99th post too so keep your eyes peeled or follow me or whatever you do to keep track of giveaways cos I'm just about to have one !
