An extra-special design, buying Homespun magazine overseas; and an exhibition

Did you enjoy the Mothers Mania posts on Among the Gum Trees last week?  I sure did!  It was great to learn more about my fellow gum tree girls, and I now have several more “must make” projects to add to my list! :-)

our Jenny has designed the most beautiful cushion, and it is on sale until Sunday 9th May (Mothers Day)… and there’s a very special reason why… but I’ll let Jenny tell you.  Just click on the picture below and you’ll be transported to a special post in the wonderful world of elefantz!  :-)

Jenny's cushion

I’ve just purchased my copy of the pattern and can’t wait to stitch it!  :-)

Australian Homespun magazine is an inspiring publication full of wonderful projects each month, and I’m very pleased to be able to provide you with further details of where you can purchase overseas.  I trust this helps :-)

Last but not least, do you remember the fabulous felted shawl that my dear friend Narelle made me for my wedding? 


Well, it is now being exhibited in Melbourne along with items from a number of other talented fibre artists from the members of the Victorian Feltmakers Inc.


The flyer reads:

“A merging of diverse, distinct, or separate elements into a unified whole.”

Augustine Centre, 2 Minona Street, Hawthorn 3122 (Melbourne)

But if you plan on going please ring before you do so as sometimes the exhibit is closed temporarily while workshops are running within the building.

I’ll be back tomorrow to tell you all about the Australian Quilt Convention I attended on Sunday!Until next time – have a lovely day!  Vikki x

I wish I could afford a subscription to ALL your Australian mags, lol - but especially Homespun. Vikki, your shawl is so gorgeous, how wonderful that it's being shown!

I think the beautiful warmth and gentleness of your shawl speak volumes about the gorgeous girl under it.... How wonderful for Narelle (and you)to have it displayed for others to share it's beauty! Delicious...
