Bunting, Bunnies & More.....

I've been busy in the sewing room having heaps of fun with fabric. So far I've made bunting,




Bunnies,




Handbags, Peg Bags, Covered Coat Hangers, Covered Journals, Gardening Aprons, Fabric Covered Push Pins, Vintage Doiley Magnets and Frilly Aprons!!
If my internet wasn't on go slow until the weekend I would show you more, but it is just too painful to load the pics!!
I won't even try to get any on Etsy yet! Too hard. I've booked a stall at a Fine Food and Craft weekend in Pittsworth which is a small country town near where I live. This is happening in early October, so may just keep making stock until then. There is also a possibility of doing a Farmers Market early September too - so may give Etsy a miss until then!!
We are having the most beautiful weather. Almost as though Spring is here already. Mother Nature is sure to give us some more winter though. The garden is doing beautifully. On the weekend I planted lots of lovelies into the vege patch too. Lettuce, Beetroot, Spinach, Pea seeds, Mint, Lemon Balm, Spring Onions, Chives, Thyme, Celery and Potatoes!! I have left heaps of room to add beans, corn and tomatoes in a few weeks when hopefully we won't get any more surprise Jack Frost!
This week has been a difficult one with a young boy from Mitchells' school sustaining an horrific head injury while training for football. He was placed on life support after being rushed to Brisbane hospital. On Sunday his family was with him as he went to be with Jesus. My boys have been so saddened by the loss of this beautiful boy. Also, last week my cousin Symon was hit by a car while riding his motor bike between his work and college. His leg is broken in 7 places below his right knee. Please pray for Symon as he undergoes reconstructive surgery this weekend and then endures the many long months of rehabilitation that he will require. Please keep his wife Melanie and their dear little baby Elliot in your thoughts as well.

Gosh you've been a busy beaver Leisa. All of your goodies look great.
So sad to hear of the boy in your son's class who passed away, far too young. Lots of thoughts and prayers going to your cousin Symon also, he will have a lot of work ahead of him to get back to feeling "normal".
hugs Deb

I hope that Symon gets back to normal as soon as possible.
Big hugs to you and your family xxx ;-)

Hi Leisa, sorry to hear that you've had much sadness in your life lately. :( Praying for the little boys family.. and also for Symon (funnily enough... I think we have a link!! My cousin sent an email yesterday as she is travelling overseas and she mentioned that one of her friends in Australia ... Symon had an accident and to pray for him... couldn't be two could there??) Your crafty things are gorgeous!!! Have fun in Pittsworth!!!! Know the area well!! We used to live halfway between Dalby and Cecil and travelled that way a bit...!! Take care.

Without doubt, the greatest fear of any parent is to lose a child and my heart and prayers go out to the family of the young boy from Mitchell's school. It is also very sad to hear of Symon's unfortunate accident. He is going to need all the love and support he can get. Your sewing looks absolutely gorgeous and you will have no problems selling your items. Evonne xx
