New stuff and a giveaway!

Hello! I just wanted to say hello and show you some new cushions, and then I have a giveaway!

It has been a little crazy around here. Crazy. I have missed your blogs- please fill me in on anything absolutely stupendous? has anyone had a baby or anything? Crafted up something that I cannot miss??

I just listed these latest cushions. What do you think? The above is a closeup of some wood and the below is a photo of a boardwalk. It is in a little town near here called Urunga, I love the boardwalk. I remember taking this photo involved laying in very cold sand fully clothed and I remember thinking I am really getting serious with this wanting to get a good photo thing. So here it is.

The Giveaway is this: I have three tickets to Organic Expo and Green Show happening in Sydney in August.

The double pass will be valid for EITHER Saturday August 6 or Sunday August 7. You can collect your tickets from the Trade Registration & Ticket Collection Booth next to the entrance to the show. The Show is held at Hall 3, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour. Opening times are Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm.
Have you ever been? It is great. We went a couple of years ago  and the food was AMAZING!!! The ideas and the amount of nice stuff you can get that is organic now is great. It is on in Melbourne too. Kylie Kwong will be doing cooking demonstrations- YUM - and their are loads of talks about how to live a healthier life. All good stuff!

Want to go? To enter:
Leave a comment below telling me what you did today to make the earth kinder? Or you can just leave a comment to say hello so I know someone is still out there...

*sigh* back to the sweat shop! ( sound of whip cracking)


  1. Hi Love, not entering just wanted to say Hi and tell you I love the cushions and you have to go and check out what Tania has been up to.

  2. Hi Cath,
    I'm in India, so I'm not entering the giveaway. Just wanted to say that your photo of the boardwalk is gorgeous and it would look equally amazing as a blown-up print. Now if you were to give that away... :)

    Just kidding. Love your work.


  3. Adore the new cushions! The only new baby here is our baby chick Hazel, she's a cutie. I haven't crafted a thing but there is always tomorrow.

    Sounds like a great expo, good luck to the entries.

  4. Hey Cath,
    loooove the latest cushions - wow!!

    I've made a doll for Kate.
    And the Mr has just lost his job - with no notice given as within the trial period! (they been V unprofessional tho) Can't claim a thing as not citizens yet... So we will be moving again as soon as he finds something! Great.


  5. I can't make it to Sydney, so no entry from me, just a hello, and lots of admiration!
    I had big plans for being kinder to the earth by taking a train instead of the car to an appointment today, until there was a fault with the tracks... next time?
    hope you're looking after yourself in the midst of all your busyness xo

  6. Hey Cath, your cushions are a-mazing! I absolutely love the Urunga Boardwalk one! No entry for me in your competition I'm afraid, I'll hopefully be holding my newborn at that point, but just wanted to say how much I love your work! Keep on sewing!

  7. Fabulosity! I just love your cushions :)

  8. I went to the Organic show last year and had an amazing time! I would love to be able to go again.

    To make the world a better place I only use public transports, use organic cosmetics, limit my meat (beef) consumption, recyle as much as possible, save energy at home by using high rated appliances and eco-friendly bulbs.

  9. Love the board walk cushion - what a happy find! I'm on holiday in Oz (Burleigh Waters - QLD) for 6 weeks so not entering the comp! Just wanted to let you know I love the blog and love the cushions! G'day Jay x

  10. I think Martha Stewart would take you up on the first one..she loves faux wood and I love your second! No babies here..


what a nice person you are- taking the time to comment in this busy hectic world...Thank you!!
