Princess Nicola and a Charity Auction

Flattery has donated a gorgeous set for the boys to an amazing little girl, Nicola. You can read all about her plight here -

To help Nicola's parent raise money to get Nicola to the States for a research symposium a few WAHMs have donated some gorgeous stuff to be auctioned off. All auction bids include registered post and the entire amount bid will go directly to Nicola.

Check out a gorgeous set for the boys in my new fave colour combo - LIME AND BLACK!!!! And featuring a cute little green truck to tie the whole set together. Your bid will win you 3 nappies - yes 3!!! - 2 t-shirts and 3 luscious velour/velour wipes. Bidding starts on Monday 29 June so take this opportunity to grab a OOAK set.

Also I have just today uploaded my monthly charity auction. July's Auction will raise money for breast cancer research. Please note that postage will be additional so keep this in mind when bidding. To theme the auctioned item with the chosen charity we've got a pink ribbon angel embroidered on baby pink minky. A beautiful little nappy, size medium, that your girl can wear with pride to show the world that her family supports charity and is doing their bit to help raise money for breast cancer research. for info about this month's charity to bid

The entire proceeds from the auction will go directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and I will be enclosing a copy of the donation receipt with your nappy.
Thanks for reading and happy bidding

Sewing so far - and bamboo

For the July stocking I had hoped to have a few nappies in all sizes of all product ranges but the month has really got away from me - the bamboo has taken a bit of my time plus 2 trips away which have meant less time for sewing. This stocking will still be a decent size but not as big as I had hoped. Be ready for August though - it's going to be a whopper :)

There is still a fair bit of bamboo listed on the site - I had planned to do another bamboo co-op soon but it seems I'm going to have enough from this lot to keep me going for a while, so you should get in while you can.

I've recently got my embroidery back and found that the designs i picked look even better in realy life. My camera has died on me (off to the shops today) but here is a pic I took the day the cuts came back... I think he is super cute :)
