Well this week on Etsy has delivered some very lovely surprises. First I was very, very lucky to be mentioned in the Etsy Finds From a Land Down Under here. I can not quite believe that I was among such wonderful Australian talent. But to top it up today the garland I blogged about in my last post made it to the front page today. Wow, what a week. Back to school tomorrow and back to the sewing machine.
Happy Australia Day to you all!

Yep, it's that time of year when all the hearts come out and its time to remember those we hold close to our hearts. In celebration of my love of hand screen printed fabric I have been finally been able to make good use of some small pieces of Pippijoe's Daisy fabric that I just knew one day I would find something special to use them for. Presenting..... my heart garland. Available in my etsy store now. I just wish I had a bright, breezy widow to photograph it on (all my widows have ugly security screens) to show how pretty it is. But anyway I made do with screeching at the girls to hold the garland still while I photographed it against a boring old wall. Doesn't quite do it justice though.
And keeping with the whole heart theme is a pretty heart purse that is also in my etsy shop. The fabric is the heart fabric by Carly Schwerdt from Umbrella Prints. The colour is Storm Boy Blue. I think it is the whole name of the colour that I love too as Storm Boy was one of my favourite books as a child.
