I Love Mail! Gumnut Babys and a Canvas work Pincushion

I'm sure by now you have heard of the Gum Tree Designers and the Among the gum trees blog, if you haven't you must have been hiding under a rock! These 8 other women that I have joined are the most generous, genuinely caring beautiful people I have ever met! As an example This is what turned up in the mail for me a little while ago, just because she saw some fabric that she thought I would like!!

I was recently commissioned to do a version of my tea cup carrier for 'Homespun Magazine' Yeah! Super excited! Anyway its for their Going Green issue and so Dawn found some beautiful 'Green' fabric and she thought I'd like it so sent it to me, but not just that, this amazing little tin full of beautiful buttons! I love then they are so cute! Thanks Dawn, I Love You, sis!Other stitching news I drew up and stitched out these 9 cute little gumnut babys, theres a story behind it I'll tell one day, but I'm having a hard time trying to decide what to put it on.... What are your favourite projects that you love to make?

And finally today, I promised Hubby I wouldn't be on the puter this weekend, oops :) You may remember I went to a Sewing day a few weeks ago and this was one of the projects we did, I finished up while I was watching the Rugby League Grand final (trying not to cry ;))
I just love it, thanks for the pattern Fiona. Fiona is my Embroidery groups Leader and a lovely Lovely person. Her blog is here. If you like embroidery, Fionas Blog is so full of inspiration, you will need another cupper!


  1. Those baby's are very cute. It depends on what you want to do with them, but maybe they would look great on something like a machine cover or a bag.

  2. Hi Paula my sweet little nut! :-)

    First of all, the fabric and notions that Dawn sent you are absolutely *divine!* Love them! She's such a sweetie!

    Gots'ta love those cute cute cute little gumnut bottoms! You know, I think they would look real cute embroidered on to the front of a T shirt! I'd wear one!!!! :-)

    Great pincushion too, I really love the shape of it. Glad you've enjoyed your day... I have done well so far, just a wee bit of blogging but now I'm off to bed as there is a craft show to go to tomorrow!

    Lots of love, gumnut sis! Vikki xoxo

  3. I was thinking, sewing machine cover, but I really like Vikki's idea of the t-shirt! cute would that be with little gumnut bottoms for all to see!!! hehehe
