Current total so far....

The current total of funds we've all raised so far through the Ebay auctions I have going is $685.18.
100% of that will be donated to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal once all monies are collected.

Can you believe it? I'm so impressed and cockles-of-my-heart warmed by the bidding bonanza. But I will be expecting some last minute bidding frenzies on all items. Pity I will be at the Fringe market selling my wares when half of the items finish! I love watching the bids go crazy in the last hours, minutes and seconds.

And to keep the hours ticking by at a rapid pace of knots here in the Silly Gilly emporium, I've been making a concerted effort to restock the boy's items in the store. I've sewn these bags and thought I'd give you a peek...


And probably the real reason I'm sewing like crazy is that I'm trying not to think about how so many Victorian crafty gals are at the Stitches and Craft Fair and I'm not there... boo hoo me.

Excellent job. I know what you mean about missing out, it's just not far but at least we get one in Sydney.
