The winner is

Little drew the winners name from the bucket this morning, for my week 3 giveaway.

9.  Krissie

If you could please email me your address at emecreate@bigpond.com  I will get these in the post to you.

Thankyou everyone for stopping by and entering.

I have been abit lazy with my blog lately, the problem is that I am still on dialup and it is too slow.  So I have decided that until next week, when I finally get satellite, I will take a little break from uploading pictures etc.  Hopefully I should be up and running again by Saturday.

Now for my week 4 giveaway, seeing as my system will be down, I will extend this giveaway into next week and draw it next Wednesday, to allow for Melbourne cup.

So I have decided to give away a complete package of our Kits that we have for sale.
This totals approximately 43 different kits, which include my felt kits and kits for Children.

Sorry there are no pictures but if you head over to my other blog http://begoniacountrycrafts.blogspot/
there should be some pictures on there to give you some ideas.

So please just leave a note saying hello, and we will draw the winner next week.

Have a fantastic week

Friends Swap

I joined in a Friendship Swap organised by the lovely Khristina from http://www.sewprimkhris.blogspot.com/.   I received my lovely gifts in the post on Monday.  Thankyou Geniene  (http://rennyandme.blogspot.com/) for the wonderful surprises.  Big E and little E were so excited to get their little gifts too.  Thankyou so much for thinking of them,  I will take some more pictures tomorrow and post them for everyone to see.  They have been carting their little bags around everywhere.  Everything was perfect, you have done a wonderful job.  I am only sorry I have not been able to email you, as I am having trouble with Bigpond.  Everytime I heard a plane go over, it brought a smile to my face thinking of your airmail comment.  Once again thankyou so much, and thankyou Khristina for hosting it.

Thankyou Keshia

I would like to give a big thankyou and a big hug to the lovely Keshia of The Wiggens tribe, who has just started a new blog, for her creative endevours  http://charlieandava.blogspot.com/ .  Keshia was kind enough to mention me in her Made It Finds, this is my first one.  This is so very exciting for me, it made my week in truth it probably made my whole year. 

Please take the time to check it out, it is well worth the visit, this beautiful blog has been designed by the creative Amanda Fuller of Calico&Co, to showcase Keshia's very wonderful creative art works.

Have a great day.

Chilly weather

It seems a coldfront followed the rain, and the temp has now dropped about 12 degrees, we even had to put the heater on in our bedroom last night. 

I've been abit slack with my posting the past couple of days, the flu has really taken hold in our household, and I seem to only just be dragging myself along. 

So here is a little of what has been going on, in between dragging myself along, of course  :-)

 Birds for Bush Christmas waiting for eyes.  These are so pretty, I hardly want to part with them.

Hearts embellished ready for stitching together for Bush Christmas.

Birds waiting to be stitched for Bush Christmas.

 Friday night was Stitch In night, sadly I had hoped to get more then 4 of these little fellows stitched, but 4 is better than none.  These little ones are made from my own handmade felt, it is so soft, I adore working with it.

Cutting up felt squares for our coaster kits, we have sold out, and not only do I have to make more to restock, I also have to make some more kits up for Bush Christmas.  Hoping to finally knock these ones on the head today.

 I will draw my week 2 giveaway tomorrow, and list my week 3 giveaway.  Hopefully will have a bit more energy tomorrow.

Hope you have a great day and enjoy what is left of your weekend.

Perfect weather for stitching

Today, it is wet and windy, so far we have had about 1 inch of rain, but doesn't sound like much, but is alot out here.  It is the perfect weather to sit and watch a movie and do some stitching.  Which I totally intend on doing very soon.  Just cutting out some coasters for Bush Christmas, which is now only 4 weeks away.

Will post some pictures tomorrow.

Have a great weekend.

My Creative Space

Still busy getting ready for Bush Christmas, I am starting to feel a little stressed now, being sick isn't helping.  Stockings ready to Stitch.

Creating more flat felt.

Time to start work on more of these, for this christmas, it takes me about 1 week to create one.

These little fellow go to my Aunty in Brisbane for in her store, each Christmas, I would also like to have some done for Bush Christmas.

Finally I am still trying to work out what to do with these.

Off to do some ironing now, then fingers crossed some more crafty stuff.
Have a great day.

Wool Disaster

So I bought 1kg of unwashed wool 2 years ago, and tried to get it clean, that is get most of the lanolin out of it, I thought I had succeeded, but when I pulled this project out of the cupboard from 1 year ago, it still feels all sticky, so it has to go.  I hate throwing away anything that I have put so much work into, but I have very little chance of getting the lanolin out now.  Oh well, better luck with the next batch.

Keep smiling

My brain feels abit like this today.  I think I'm getting what the girls had.  Isn't that always the way, they start to get better, and then you go down with it. 

Not a pretty picture.
Have a fantastic day.

Sick Girls

Both my little Angels are very sick, we even ventured into town to take them to the hospital yesterday.  Big E has Bronchitis and Little E has a middle ear infection along with something else which we have had tests for, we just have to wait for the results now.  So there has been nothing exciting happening on the home front.

Have a great day.

Out of sorts

We are down and out for the count today, my little ones are both very sick....  We were up and down all night, so I haven't had enough sleep, hopefully will catch up on some today.  It is so sad when they are sick, you never know quite what to do.  But somehow we always manage to muddle through.

Have a great Day.
