A side ways step

Yes I have been consumed by other things, just a sideways step though, I will get to the sewing soon. The story of my life though, running around in circles is what I am really good at !

I've been gardening, after Mr bubba rotary hoed on the weekend I have been consumed by the dirt!

It's only a 3m X 3m patch but I have managed to fit all sorts of goodies in there!

Here's a pic and I'll post another when things start happening !

After dad passed away a few weeks ago, some of us decided to plant an Olive tree in his memory.

Our family goes back a long way in the history of Olives in Australia, in the days when only Greeks and Italians ate Olives, Now thats a long time ago ! My grandfather Jacob started this plantation just outside Horsham, Vic and a couple of others in the district also. My grandfather sent dad to Florence, Italy to University for two years when he was 16 years old to learn all about Olives. We planted our tree overlooking the vege patch cos dad in his younger years always loved growing veges too. Here's my tree.

Tomorrow these are coming out as they are so messy around the pool. And these will be trimmed and cleaned up.

Cos I am really over all this mess they make !

Oh and whilst I'm on the gardening subject, Look at these gorgeous Primulas.

Well, Big post, thanks for sticking with it the whole way through, Hope you found it slightly interesting...One more thing..... Selina, I did wear my runners today, and they did get sooo dirty that I had to wash them !

Now I want it to be summer so I can rest here for the rest of the day!

Purse Monday

I have 3.5 days this week to get ready for The Handmade Expo Market on Saturday and to start working towards the Brisstyle Market on Saturday Sept 4th.

Today I worked nearly all day ( after I planted out a vege garden ) on purses.

Tomorrow it will be more little skirts and pants, but with a new twist ! I'll show you tomorrow!

Here are some of the purses. Some of them are very much like pencil cases, which I love.

I'll be back tomorrow, will you?

Back on track !

Hi lovely followers, you are being very patient with me while I have been trying to get back into the swing of all things bubbachenille.

It has been very hard and still is but I am pushing through.

The last couple of months I have been living on Facebook, which I have found to be amazing for my little bubba business and for The Handmade Expo too. If you aren't doing it yet, may I recommend it to you as a great networking and sales tool. ( one of the many I might add! )

Today I got to spend some time with Micky, who works full time but for reasons I wont be mentioning, had a day off today. I love going shopping with someone else helping me choose things and today it was fabric. She also has boys and has a boy perspective of what would look good in the bubba range as I tend to be drawn to all the girly colours.

Here are todays choices for some newbies for summer, with vintage chenille trims instead of the usual vintage chenille with fabric trims ( you have to move outside the square occaissionaly ! )

Have you guessed yet that we are into spots at the moment?
I have been busy stocking up my etsy store, my madeit store and my ethikl store also keeping Handmade Heaven fully stocked for your shopping convieniance !
Better get back to doing some cutting out of " the new" fabrics, idol hands and all that!
Only 15 sleeps until The Handmade Expo Market and we are celebrating two years of operating this awesome handmade only market.
We are giving a cupcake to the first 500 people to come through the gate!
Vote 1 The Handmade Expo Market !
See you soon X :-)
