More goodies to drool over

The postie was saved from eye-boggling views this time, as these new donations for the Bushfire Appeal were left on my door step.

Firstly, we have a groovy Owlie brooch from the talented Liz of Lino Forest. He is made entirely from vintage lino and old buttons. I'm a Betty Jo brooch owner and constantly get complimented on it so that's a personal recommendation!

Secondly, there is another fabulous bag from Cass of Snailblazer. This bag is a little larger than the others she has donated. It would make, to quote Cass, a fantastic nappy or uni bag with three large internal pockets, magnetic closure and a long strap.

Coming next is three sweet little girls that Kathryn of Our Shabby Cottage calls Bag of Mischief - Katya. Aren't they just so sweet!? The matryoshka dolls come with their own coordinating draw string bag, perfect to tote them around or use as gift packaging.

And last, but not least, is this magnificent quilt generously donated by Emma of Ballarat Patchwork. This quilt has been designed and machine pieced by Emma and machine quilted by Elizabeth Zabinski of The Quiltworks in Ballarat. Isn't it just amazing??!!

I've had contact from people all over the world, not just here in Australia but from the UK, the USA and Norway, wanting to donate items for the auction. The generosity of crafters truly warms the little cockles of my heart.

I'm really looking forward to March 6th when I can list all these gorgeous items on Ebay and have them bid upon by you all!
