Hi all. Been a while. Super busy with Gorgus Josh. We joined forces with the Dubbo Police, to help raise money for the David Rixon Memorial Fund. David lost his life in the line of duty. Blessings to his family and six children. It was so nice to meet his colleague's and to donate money to the fund.
I am so proud of the had work Georgie, Joshua and Mas (Kidlets and Hublet) put into the weeks leading up to "150 Year Police Spectacular" in Dubbo. About 5000 people came to the event, all contributing to the fund. Thanks to Dubbo and the surrounding command area.

I'm really enjoying making these little reversible bags...I have had the pattern for so long and now can't stop making them.
I was excited to make one for my sister's birthday...I used the selvage as a feature...I also added my little wooden logo to the reverse side for fun...!
A tea towel as gift wrap
These little tags are from Etsy

I have enlarged the pattern and can't wait to make a big one!!!

On the 19th February 1969 a wonderful man was blessed with Identical twin girls on his birthday...For the first time in many years, we have spent our birthdays together as a family.
My twin 'Kylie' and I organised a photo (that I can't find now)and an etched keyring as a gift. I also took much delight in making a little bag for my twin....she had admired mine so a gift choice was easy.

This little bag is also reversable
As bit hard to see
My nephew has a very cool camera. This next picture is from his camera

It was a wonderful experience, and look forward to many more years.

These is cool...well I think so...But it doesn't take much to amuse me...And people would say that I'm off with the Pixies anyway!!!
We have had lots of rain this week and these cute little Fungi appear in an ark shape, and the old truck happen to be sitting where it is...!
I wonder if there are Pixies in the trunk protecting that how the fairy tails go!!! One could only dream...He He...Crazy I know, but the pics are cool...well I think so!

Yehaa, I'm back...been a busy little bee. I have been organising a promotional order...And the ARMATREE HOTEL have taken me up on my idea.
I was very excited when the publicans of the Armatree Hotel accepted my offer to design some promotional Key Fobs to sell in the hotel. I have used the standard Key Fob supplies and added the Hotel logo to labels. The white label may also be used on other items.

Two labels were used, targeting male and female customers with different ribbon.
Clipstrips are use to display

I couldn't resist these little kitchen ideas (a gift) to help keep up with their yummy Pizza...!

This place is  AWESOME....The Armatree Hotel is located between Gilgandra and Gulargambone. My first `visit to the Armatree hotel was spent munching on The Yummiest Home Made Pizza, and without any question, the coldest refreshments this side of the Blue Mountains...They also provide accommodation at this truly unique hotel...The hotel was rebuilt in 1929. Over the last few years, the publicans Ash and Lib Walker have done a beautiful job restoring the interior. A new kitchen was built in 2009, now providing the Best Pizza's. Functions are a regular event, and fundraising family days always popular.

If you are ever passing through this's well worth the visit. It really is a beautiful piece of history.
Thank you to Ash and Lib Walker for supporting

Its that time again. My beautiful Aunt has had a birthday! I have used fabric by Sweetwater...the last gift was also Sweetwater fabric so she should be able to use these items together. I know she goes walking and does Yoga so this is what I came up with....
  • A Tinny Winny coin purse 1.5 "
  • Phone case with magnetic clip ( will use a pattern next time )
  • Extra long strap to carry over the head onto the shoulder
  • Insal-brite so it is extra thermal
  • Parrot clips to swap and change & carry keys
  • I have sized it to hold up to a 1 litre bottle
So back to the sewing room to make GK Kidlets Year six farewell dress...She has picked the fabric and designed what she would like....Keeping It age appropriate was my concern, but she has chosen well.
Will keep you posted in a few weeks with the finished product!!!!
Cheers Nic
