Creative Giving from the Woman Child

I have this 14 year old woman child in the house who loves her animals, nature and environment.  She was feeling a little disheartened and sad, until she heard about all the crafting going on for the Wildlife affected by the massive bush fires we have had this year. 

"Mum can we make something?" SURE THING!! 

What to make?   There is sooooooo much out there, so I just rang.  Googled a Wildlife Sanctuary in Eastern Victoria and said "What do you need?"  

Large Kangaroo pouches, both Day and Night ones.  DONE!

I whipped up 6 today, Miss Ash will jump on the machine tomorrow and have a go.  This project super simple for the beginner.  

You can get the FREE pattern off the ever so gorgeous Sarah @ Piccolo Studio.  Just jump into her shop to purchase (for nothing) the PDF.  

You will need 100% Cotton and some Drill/Denim or tough stuff.  Make sure you double up all those seams.  Those skippy's can be hard on fabric.  xx

This Year.........

I've began a new job wearing lots of this.........


And I've studied many many many of these..........


To be honest.....I'm felling a bit buggered.  It's time to tell the world to bugger off and enjoy the festive season.  Bring on the sunshine and surf!

Love to you and yours.......See you in 2020.  Leonie xx

On Good Behaviour

We have some new guests, guests that are welcome as long as they don't start attacking members of the family.  We have had these type of visitors before and they had to be rehoused due to some pretty abusive behaviour.  They can stay.....for now. 
I do love them..........a lot.

Back to School

So the fun and games have began.  Holly cow, I was sitting in class totally freaking out, my brain was whirling and spinning and then my super lecturer says..... "You need to make some flower presses." Stuff the latin......now you're talking my language! 

2 made, 2 to go, then........road trip, time to get some juicy botanical samples.  I'm off!!!
