Brisbane Trip

We had a great trip up.Long days in the car but lovely dinners and wine each night.The kids are doing well and our baby girl is just gorgeous.I knitted all the way up(which explains my dead shoulder)and got some little kids bootee/slippers done .Will get them listed when the pics are sorted.Had great excitement when a bracelet sold-going to Scotland-my first jewellery sale on ETSY.Have done my pencil wrap order since we got here ,so when all is posted I'm having a bit of free time.Lucky I brought my small listings with me.Here are the boots and the bracelet .

The boots are in the AllysannesKidStuff shop

What a great week .Have been designing and listing organizer wraps for the etsy shop. I have been lucky enough to be using gorgeous rainbow fabric from the queen of the dye workshop Rainbow Revolution.It is such a joy to work with and makes up beautifully.My mind is darting around with ideas of what I can do with it!.Here are some of the results.

About Me

My photo
I am a self taught arter crafter and I love to make soft toys ,dye fabric and paint. I live on a small farm in the south of Australia.It is a beautiful place ,though on a stinking hot summers day when the temp is high and the North wind is howling it loses some of its appeal.I have a lovely husband,four grown children and six extraordinarily attractive grandchildren.We have three dogs ,two cats,fifteen chooks,three ducks ,two geese and a few hundred sheep on our little farm so that keeps us in touch with nature most days.We love to grow our own vegetables and have a lovely big hothouse for the winter veg.I spend most days involved with crafting ,enjoying my husbands company and some days being Nanny to the grandkids while their parents are doing what they have to do.When we have had enough of everything and everybody we love to hitch up our caravan and disappear over the horizon for a while.I am a proud member of the etsy DUST Team and have etsy stores at
