Jan 2010 Newsletter....

January 2010 Newsletter:

Hi Everyone,
I am finally here with some things to share. The start of the year has seen me very busy, I am almost finished the last lot of the Teddy Club. Due to my hubby's severe illness last year I have been way behind in getting the last month out. But I have just one more thing to go and it is finished. A very big thank you to all who have been very patient with me over these last very tiring and stressful 6 months. Hubby is improving albeit it very slowly and he still cannot walk unaided and is still in a considerable amount of pain. But he is alive and that is what counts most of all......

I am going to use this blog as my newsletter blog so please come back here each month to see what is available etc. To see what we are making each week go to my Typepad blog.
What's New......

This weekend I will be writing up these patterns, so all will be available very soon.....

This is Charli Anne she is a little cutie and is 22cm [9"] tall.

This is my Little Raggedy and mini quilt. The doll is 22cm [9"] tall and the little strip pieced mini quilt is 32cm x 29cm [12.5" x 11.5"]. We are also making a wooden shelf for the doll to sit on the the mini quilt will hang under the shelf... The shelf will be available very soon.

This is Alexis. I am making another doll for the sample as both of these have gone to new homes.

How cute are these tape measures. I will also have these available soon in other designs including bears, cats and embroidered ones as well. Kits will also be available for this item.

This is Beach Babe.... I have to make another of these ones for my sample as both of these dolls have gone to live in new homes. This doll is freestanding and is off the the beach for a swim and is taking her pull a long duckie with her.
All of these patterns will be available as a hard copy for $10 Australian plus postage and as an e patten $5 Australian.
