let us belong

I am so excited to share a lovely gift I received this week from lovely Cath, who makes beautiful items-she also has the cutest store names; chunky chooky and my bearded pigeon. Isn't this the sweetest cushion?

I love the spirit of inclusion in the message and the simple bold graphic, thanks Cath.
Would you like to learn more about the facts about refugees? This site is a great place to start. I have been heartened to hear some beautiful stories of community spirit- some of Brisbanes' newest arrivals have been lending a hand during the floods. One small example is the charming Sri Lankan community members who cooked up delicious curries to feed volunteers-beautiful!

And speaking of community spirit this doll has been sent off to 'hope softys' appeal. You might have seen my first attempt back a post-I wasn't 100% about it but sent it together with this one for the children who have been flooded out of their homes. You can find out to have some crafting fun and help brighten a littlys day here...

Thanks for the shout out Kate- and the softie is great!

Cath's got some great ideas. I love her work and her blog.

Your softie is full of character. She has a real vintage sweetness about her. She's not a 'fluffy' softie, she's a keeper. x

Great present Kate! The boys have both given the thumbs up for your lovely softie :-) We have a day off for Australia Day to interrupt the school week, so we get broken in easily too! Have a great week xx
