when fabric speaks to you . . .

Greetings all,
Fabric lovers, ever find that often, fabric speaks to you??  Like this 'Let's Enjoy Britain' fabric actually barked to me "make me into a Scottie dog" tough toy softie style for little animals or children, same difference.  So off they went to Shop Handmade with me today, complete with rattle & denim back, super tough indeed!!  Meanwhile, the French fabric purrrred to be made into Chiens too!!  They look so cute in Shop with Cosmic Collars on them, dual purpose!!

These fabrics are all from Reprodepot, to be made into more fabric purses, play blocks, simple softies & a lovely range of cushions for Handmade Market.  Check out the purses here in Thea & Sami screen prints, finally brought in to Shop this week & out on display.
Finally, my twinnies are off on camp this week, after great excitement & serious hype, packing & promising to go to sleep early, i found this note by the laptop tonight.  Ahhhhh . . . love the donkey note holder??  It's from Typo.  Oh you might also notice a new modem, thank goodness, finally, wireless again.  Only took 43 days for the "allow 5 working days for delivery" - my eldest daughter was counting, siting a crime against humanity to be in year 6 without wireless internet in her room. 

If you're around the Canberra area on Thursday, fancy supporting a great cancer fundraiser, i'm doing the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea at the Forrest Hotel in Forrest ACT (near Parliament House) from 10.30 to 12.30, lots of prizes, only $10 per head for delicious morning tea & half a dozen market stalls . . . love Posie

Oh, I just love those sweet notes that little girls are prone to writing. Hope you don't miss your little ones too much, Posie.

The note is a heart-melter. Who can resist that hand-writing? I can't believe how much work you have done! You really are Super Woman. x
