Christmas is coming!

Can't believe how quickly the months are turning over and soon we will start to see Christmas decorations in the shops and shopping centres! I am itching to retrieve all my Christmas wall hangings from the garage and start adorning the house - but I shall wait a little longer!
Christmas items are popping up at online stores so I have decided to make a start with my Christmas bibs for this year and I must say the fabric is just devine - cute santas, elves and reindeers just to mention a few.
You can find and purchase my Christmas bibs in my Etsy store or on my Facebook page where you can message me to purchase. Please remember to purchase early as some fabric will sell out and I will not be able to reorder and also allow turnaround and postage times to your location.
Below is just a few examples of baby bibs I have been making all are embroidered on the reverse side with the saying "My 1st Christmas and I have some other monograms designs available you can see them in my Etsy store too.
Take care everyone
Love Leeanne

Anzac Day 2013 - Lest We Forget

Today is April 25th a day when we pause to remember the fallen soldiers. Anzac Day was originally a day to remember the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in World War I but nowadays it remembers those who fought in both World Wars, other conflicts and also peacekeeping missions. Dawn services are held in every Capital City across Australia and New Zealand and of course Gallipoli, Turkey (known as Anzac Cove) the site where many solders were killed or wounded in World War 1.

At each service the poem "The Fallen" is read and was written by Laurence Binyon in 1914 and below is just an extract.

"With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

To all the soldiers who were killed or wounded and to those still currently serving today we say thankyou.

Personalised burp cloths Shabby

With such a huge stash of gorgeous shabby fabrics I have now started making some lovely burp cloths! These are personalised too with your choice of first name and I have two different applique fonts to choose from. The first is a lovely patchwork font (yep I am a quilter at heart) and the second font uses a contrasting thread colour and a lovely stitch detail along with a different font for the name underneath. You can see the full range of shabby fabrics available on my Facebook page and you can order a burp cloth via my Etsy or Madeit stores. Matching personalised bib is available (store bought and embroidered by me) please ask if interested. This would make a lovely set for any new baby!

New bib and burp sets for February 2013

As well as orders I have been madly sewing some lovely bib and burp sets this month. I will show you just a few here the rest you can see in my Etsy or Madeit stores. The bib and burp sets above use a premade bib with velcro closure and the burp cloth is made from a hand towel. First up we have the lovely Sweet Heart set made up of a bib and burp set for girls and then the lovely Just Plane cute set for boys both of which are available in my Etsy store. Another lovely bib and burp set "Emily" available in pink/brown spot colourway for girls or blue/brown colourway for boys is available in my Etsy store as well.. Next month I will show you the new personalized and reversible bibs using Chevron fabric (my favourite)! Till then take care everyone!
