What could it be?

The last few weeks have been very busy and intense! I will spill the beans in the next few days, but in the mean time another little tease :) and no Scottish Nanna, no more babys for me hehehe.
My precious super model at the end of a very busy and hot summers day!

Any more guesses?

New Melly and Me patterns!

I was absolutely elated recently to be offered the opportunity to test sew Mellys new 'Sew Little' patterns! As regular readers know, I am obsessed with Melly designs! She is also an amazing and lovely person. So I jumped at the chance to make not 1 but 2 of her newest creations!Jack absolutely looooves his Mini Mover! As you can tell he was very excited about his 'shirt' as he calls it :)Emma was not as impressed, but eventually she came around to being my perfect little super model lol.

Isn't Melly so clever!

Queensland Flood Appeal Auction

As i'm sure your aware by now many of us bloggers are holding Auctions to raise money for the people in our devistated state of Queensland.

The stories of loss and also courage have ripped our hearts out.

Toni and Carli at 'Make It Perfect' have done an amazing job of putting together this amazing auction, head over here to read more about the floods.

So to do my bit I have put together a baby gift set. To be included in the auction are a Dolphin softie, a Seahorse Baby Tag Toy and a Giraffe Baby Tag toy. This auction is for the actual toys, not the patterns.

You can take your choice of colours, (The green dolphins are made using Minky) I will even make a custom toy for you in your choice of colours if you like.
The Dolphins are made from 'Melly and Me's' Dee Dee Dolphin pattern. Dee Dee is a large toy, while the tag toys are approx 8 1/2" tall, perfect for little hands.

These tag toys are made from my own pattern that I hope to get out in the next few weeks.
How this auction works:
  1. Bidding will start at $25
  2. You can place your bid by leaving a comment on this post, making sure to include your email address and the amount you wish to bid. Please make sure it is higher than the previous bid.
  3. Your Bid must be in whole dollar increments
  4. This auction is open to everyone, however $20 will be charged for international bidders postage. Australian bidders will not be charged for postage.
  5. The Auction will end at midnight on Monday 24th Jan 2011.
  6. At the end of the auction I will contact the winner. The winner will pay their money directly to the Premiers Flood Appeal and send me proof of payment via email.
  7. I will then post out your softie package to you.
  8. Thanks for participating and Happy Bidding.

Lets raise as much money as possible!

Flood Appeal Auctions

Having lived in Queensland for about 1/3 of my life I am absolutely devestated by the news of the flooding and losses of such wonderful people.

But as a mother, I am an absolute mess! The news of a teenager giving up his life to save his brother has just wrecked me! I'm in my own puddle of tears!

As a pensioner I can't afford to give as much money as I would like to, so instead I am going to join in an Online Auction appeal, started by Toni of Make it Perfect fame.

In the next day or so I will be putting up a group of items that you can bid on with all proceeds being directly paid to the Premiers Relief Appeal.

If you can please join in and have an auction on your own blog. These people have lost everything and some people don't even have a pair of shoes! Can you imagine it! Head over to Tonis blog and grab the link.

Block Fail! :)

Have you ever saved a really special or favourite piece of fabric that you need just the right project for, then finally used it and had it backfire? lol
I had this gorgeous spotty fabric that I just loved!!! I only had 1 fat quarter left and so I didn't want to waste it. Then I thought I'd found the perfect project!
I was involved in a swap group last year and did a gorgeous block for one of the ladies. It was a kitten that I just fell in love with. She had such a gorgous personality. So when I started a new swap this month, I decided that I must redo this block for my baby girl.
What was the problem you ask? My delightful puddy cat has a severe case of the chicken pox! lol Big hugs Paula xxx
PS. I found the picture on a colouring in page here.
