100 posts!!

A traditional 100th blog post comes with a giveaway.
Well, this WILL be a giveaway …. but with a difference.

I have signed up in recent months for 3 ‘Pay It Forward’s:

Which means I am supposed to offer handmade gifts to NINE lovely readers.

Here is the deal ….. the first 9 commenters will receive a handmade item from me within the next 365 days.
In turn, you must each commit to offering a ‘Pay It Forward’ on your own blog to 3 other people who must then offer to 3 others, etc.

Please do NOT leave a comment if you are not willing to follow through with this.

Also, please make sure I have some way of contacting you.

And just because I can’t leave a post without some photos, here is the cushion I made for Ella’s kinder teacher Peter who left her child care centre last week.

Apparently, the only colours he uses in his furnishings at home are: white, cream and occasionally off-white. Hard work!!

Have a stitchin’ week!

Andi 🙂

EDIT 9/11/09: One more spot available. One of the first nine commenters was not signing up for the PIF!!

Cush Cush

On our recent trip to Noosa, I visited the Eumundi Markets where I bought, amongst other things, some awesome bean bags from a company called Cush Cush.

These are the comfiest, softest bean bags EVER and make for fabulous outdoor furniture during the fine weather.

I wanted to make some other cushions to go with the bean bags and found some fantastic canvas trim to use, during a catch-up with some fabulous women yesterday.

A quick trip to Spotlight for some coordinating canvas fabric and voila!!

Outdoor comfort for all!!

Have a great weekend.
I hope the sun is shining where you are.

EDIT 25/10/09 – Didn’t realise Karen was blogging too now. Sorry for the omission Karen!!!
And Thanks to Wendy for the link!!

Prep news

Where we live, ‘Prep’ is the first year of school (aged about 5 or 6).

Jake’s school had their school concert recently.

Here’s all the Preps singing My Cherie Amour (by Stevie Wonder)

Too cute!!

In other Prep news, one of the mums had her third baby recently … a girl.

Here’s a little gift I’ve made for the baby:

…. with a little blatant self-promotion for good measure!!

Hope you are having a good week.

3-seater not quite finished but here’s the 2-seater…..

Before: (with the red fabric all frayed and splitting … hard to see)

… and after ….

A patchwork couch!!! Hooray!!!!!
