Finally I've Finished Them........Another Wabbit & A Li'l Elephant

Happy Australia Day!

These are my latest creations, sooo cute!  I might have to do something with Miss Ellie's ear though cos she looks like she's about to take off!  They're both made from mohair which I've grubbied up to give them a bit of an aged look.

(Jan could you please contact me so we can finalise the Auction.  If I don't hear from you by Friday I will have to award the Auction win to the next highest bidder, thank you).

The Big Wet In Queensland


Well thankfully we were high and dry here in Upper Caboolture.  Other parts of Caboolture weren't so lucky and were isolated.  Some businesses were flooded in the lower lying areas.  My husband had to spend a night at a friend's house as the train he was on was turned back with safety concerns over the bridges it had to cross.  (I think runaway boats had hit the bridge).

My heart goes out to all the other people who lost loved ones and their homes.  It has been like watching a horror movie roll out before our very eyes. 

It has been heartwarming to hear of the wonderful people rallying to help those that have lost everything, so to do my little bit to raise some funds for the Premier's Appeal I have decided to auction off this sweet little elephant.

I have handmade her from mohair and I have used vintage fabric for paw pads and ears.  I have grubbied her for a bit of an aged look, and she is a collectable item only and not a child's toy.  Sitting she measures 18cm.  She is five-way jointed and has a wobbly neck.

How my auction works:

1. Bidding will start at $20 (Australian).
2. You can place a bid by leaving a comment on this blog post with your bid amount and email address. Please make sure that your bid is higher than the previous bidder.
3. Your bid must be in whole dollar increments.
4. This auction is open to everyone. Postage will be $5 for Australian residents and $10 for overseas buyers.
5. The auction begins NOW and will END at 9am on Monday 24th January 2011.
6. At the close of the auction, I will contact the winner (please make sure your bid comment includes your email address). The winner will pay the winning amount directly into the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and send me proof of payment via email. Once proof of payment has been received, I will post your little elephant to you.
7. Thanks so much for taking part. Best of luck and happy bidding!

Pics of Blocks & Wee Ellie

These are two of the blocks I finished off yesterday.  They're just the right size for Little Miss Ellie to sit on!

Finishing All Those UFO's (not) & Other Stuff ....

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hope you all had a great holiday!

It's still wet here in Brisbane so I've been busy cutting out more bears & elephants as well as making covered wooden blocks.  I'm using up some of my lovely papers I have collected over the past year.  I should actually be finishing off stuff but I can't help myself & have started so many new projects! 

Sorry there's no piccy's as I tripped over the cord to my laptop & ripped the wires out (I'm using my hubby's computer but I can't load photos).

Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are.
