Fabricabrac - bootiful booty

The most fun event I have been to in a long time, accompanied by my friend Charmaine (she's the lady with funky handbag)!
A fundraiser for the Mary Potter Hospice - Fabricabrac, in the Massey University Hall. Stalls were hired out to crafters to sell their "surplus to requirements" fabrics. So we went to stock up (as if we didn't have enough fabrics!). I came back with a large bag, my friend came back with FOUR.

This is my booty. Lots of retro stuff. I also got some buttyful buttons!

Next year Charmaine and I will have a stall together.
It will make us feel better if we part with some of our supplies for charity:-)

Long radio silence

Sorry dear blog that you are ignored and unloved this month..... Indeed April is the cruelest month! I have been nursing a sick cat, saying farewell for the second time to my husband who had to go back to the UK again. I was also busy at work. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Introducing Zhenya

She has taken a while to complete due to interruptions. Husband had to fly back to the UK and our 16 month old tabby boy has been diagnosed with an immune disease. Poor lad has needed lots of love and nursing. He assisted a lot by purring and generally being a model patient. I am now selling my dolls at the NZ craft website You can search for "Caravanserai" and you will find the dolls under "Collectables/Dolls"
