It is school holidays here at the moment and our five year old grand daughter has been visiting lots.So I have still been sewing and working and she has been helping and making her own gear with the scraps.It does slow one down a bit ,but we have still managed to come up with a couple of dresses and a few pencil wraps.We also have multitudes of 'outfits' made of tiny scraps of fabric sewn together in very unique ways by Nanny!Unfortunately they have gone home with the designer,so I can't share photos of them with you.I have some pics of the dressses though and some boots I have been knitting ,so will share them with you.

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
