Round & Round the Merry Go Round of Life

Greetings, i hope it's sunny & shining in your life where you are, we're waiting for rain . . . hello Monsoons, where are you?? It's certainly hot & humid, the frogs are croaking & ready for the down pour.
I've finally got all the chicken pox children back to school, that was a fun month with a 4 child relay. Thanks to the vaccinations, they all got varying cases from very mild/ princess pox, to pretty dreadful. That's when we realised our son wasn't vaccinated, you know, we were busy. Sorry baby boy, we do love you & you have been very brave for a 3 1/2 year old, not to scratch.
In the mean time, i've done some new products for super fabulous Pip of Meet Me At Mike's new store in Fitzroy.
NEW fabric packs - ones making up a yard & smaller fabrix fix packs with story book panels
3 panel breakfast cushion covers in lots of Summery goodness
Then sewing up a storm for the lovely Tanya, of Lily&Agathe fame in France, with sweet French product translations, by my darling friend Ines on the reverse of the removable tags. Lots of rattle cubes & tote bags. Have a look at their on line store for extra special Christmas gifts, with genuine vintage fabrics & lots of love.
original Bonne Nuit Les Petites & Noddy fabric
we were already MASSIVE Noddy fans, thanks to my English Mummy
I've always loved fabric covered & trimmed lampshades, these went with a cowboy, gingham & denim patchwork quilt order earlier this year. I will be adding lampshades to Posie in the new year.
all ironed & glued in place, then hand stitched, for a lucky little cowboy
Have fabulous weeks everybody!! Mydarling husband is home after a nice round trip of the Northern Territory (yes, they hit a kangeroo, actually it was already road kill & there was no damage to the car) so we're having a lovely family weekend with happy, healthy children again. Keeping it simple staying at home, except for a Tupperware Party, preschool learning day & open day at the local Steiner School on Saturday & i will do the local Sunday markets. Hey, we've quit ballet!! Love Posie

Something to do in Melbourne today

A lovely Melbourne mummy named Susan has a message for you about a great craft fair today . . .
Susan is dabbling with a new business named Suby Designs, in between parenting & physiotherapy. The blog link is on the right, click there for more details & enticing product images.
So go along to . . . Brunswick Kindergarten, Glenlyon Road, Brunswick VIC Australia Saturday 13th October, from 10am-4pm.
I met Susan at my market stall in Nightcliff NT when she was holidaying with her husband & little girls, we hit it off & i sent some fabric to her to make some goodies for the Kindergarten Craft Fair. Sounds like lots of fun, so please get out there. I just knew Susan was a fellow scientist, lots of us frustrated geeks let loose with fabric & get creative, especially with patchworking.
Sorry for the late notice about the craft fair, this week's distraction - we've had 3 more children struck down with chicken pox, all vaccinated, so hoping it's another light dose like patient zero 2 weeks ago. Yes, a fun fun fun week ahead of me. Love Posie
