New stuff, finished projects (finally!!)

Just listed a hand-knitted shrug on Etsy, click here for the listing. Also, I added some improvements to my studio, courtesy of IKEA (gotta love IKEA!). I got a cool magnetic board and some magnetic containers with clear lids for safety pins, labels, etc. It's a great place to have all that stuff handy.

Also I got a really neat 10-drawer scrapbooking trolley where I store all my stuff for felt food making - felt is organised and in colour order, templates are organised too. Just wonder how long the organisation will last!!

New Ning group - Etsy Artists Lounge

Thanks to Debbie Underwood (aka AbyssalGems) on Etsy. She has made a social networking page on for us loungers to use. It's heaps of fun, the only downside is that I may have to spend even more time online...

Just joined too!

This is an Aussie website to sell handmade stuff on, so I have joined with a shop called "The Felt Grocer" and will focus on selling my felt foods here and on I have no listings as yet, but will soon. I'm working on a pack of tri-colour (traffic light) capsicums (bell peppers for you Statesiders!) and a few other little goodies. Stay tuned tomorrow for a look into the Etsy Artists Lounge...

My studio - well, kind of...

I have just cleaned up our study / library / storage room / sewing room and made a little studio corner for my knitting, planning, felt food toy making and dressmaking. What do you think? It looks tidy because I've only just re-organised. Oh, and I haven't got most of my supplies in this room either. I am investing in one of those 10-drawer scrapbooking trolleys for my felt, templates and other stuff. This could become a full-time job, this organising!

Oh, and my supplies are kept in this cabinet. As you can see, I have lots of fabric! All of it will be put to good use - hopefully in my lifetime!!!

Charity breakfast finished!

Yay, completed the felt breakfast for the Montessori School auction! Here's a picture of it. The link to the school is: I think the auction is in May, so if you can make a donation, please contact them through their website. A fellow Etsyian, Creative Potential, made me aware of the school. Check out her shop here:

Well, after a morning of hard work, I managed to nearly complete the breakfast set, prewash some fabric, iron and tidy up my studio. Also, the Etsy Street Team I am part of has a new blog - check it out!
