Well,have been flat out since we got home from Brisbane.It was the big cook up for the Easter Saturday Beachport market with my friend Julie and kids and family the whole weekend.Home from Beachport and straight into cleaning my work rooms-yes there are more than one.How nice they are now: they quite entice me to create something.Have been sewing little dresses from some fabric I picked up in Brisbane.They are so nice to make,usually looking quite sweet when finished and today have started catching up on some cards.Have also been listing all of my stock from the now defunct market.It will take me ages but will have a full shop when done

Also have just been looking at the blog of Art Dolls by Nat.Some absolutely gorgeous dolls on there,beautifully made and real 'Art' Dolls in the real sense of the word.I highly recommend a cruise through the blog.Making dolls is quite addictive-but then I find all 'making things'addictive.Have a great week everyone.I look forward to catching up on blogs.

I'm up early this morning.It's lovely and cool and I'm trying to get all the computer stuff out of the way ,so I can spend all day with the family.We only have two days left and its off home again.Will have to start saving again so we can get back soon.They just live too far away.
Has anyone noticed I'm such a great blogger I am now following myself.What a dork.I'm having trouble working out how to follow people.Some blogs have an easy button to click to follow and others I can't find any way to follow.Will have to work it out.Have just been reading the blog of littlemoandfriends and it is so beautiful,but I can't find how to follow her.I guess one of you will explain on the thread .I will have to ask.I hear movement hear.Better go and cuddle that baby for a while.he is so lovely .Hardly ever whinges and smiles every time she sees me.Can't get better than that!Cheers

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
