Presents !!!

Present for a Friend

This is a belated present for one of my gorgeous friends. It is a craft cushion, featuring every bit of crafty fabric I could find in the stash and a few of her favourites as well. Some embroidery and wonky logs and hey presto !!!
This little embroidery is a design by the most talented Aunty Cookie ? Do you like the bit that says " Nimble fingers required" ? That is one of Aunty Cookies fabrics too, as well as the other texty piece. I have some of Shannon's great art as well and I just find I love everything she does. She is like uber-talented, a Renaissance crafter - drawing, sewing, goccoing, and now even badges.

I can't wait to buy more of her stuff at the Magnolia Square market. I wonder if I'll be brave enough to say HI?

If you haven't "met" Aunty cookie pop on over now - I'm sure she's there.

Presents for you guys !

Pay It Forward !!

I have no idea about the Pay it Forward movie but I love the idea of giving things away so I have joined The Pay it Forward Exchange over at Fiona's blog .
Here is how it works -( copied from Fiona)

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange!I don't know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week...LOL... but you will receive it within 365 days, that's a promise! and it will be something yummy!!The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog...

However I will add that you will receive it within a month because if I don't do it by then I will forget to do it at all. I have no idea what the gift will be but I will do my best. (Not a wonky purse I promise) So there you go - first three to make the same promise are my prizewinners - Couldn't be easier.

And the buttons? Well they are a pressie for me that I grabbed at the op-shop today. A huge jar for $6.

One day I will show you my button collection - and that is a threat !


  1. I'm up for the PIF Jodie (if you'll have me?) - gee this is going to be tough. 3 nice things that people will love, that I will be able to part with. mmmmmm.

    ps love love love the embroidery on the craft cushion for a friend. And how did I figure that you would have at least some of Michael Millers ric-rac fabric.

  2. Pick me Jodie Pick me! I like the sound of finding 3 pressies for like minded people.
    LOVE THE CUSHION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Hi Jodie - thanks for lovely welcome. Love your Elephant Softie - so sweet. Where did you get the tape measure fabric for crafty cushion from? I see Aunty Cookie's knit, purl stuff. My stash is hanging out just waiting to become something. Love it, inspiring to see it in use - might encourage me to get the scissors out....
